Abstract: This study aimed to analyze the factorial structure and reliability of the Violencein Adolescent's Dating Relationship Inventory (VADRI) and to get a shorterform to facilitate its application in the Mexican context. Participants were 1,055 Mexican' students which ages ranged between 14 and 22 years (M= 17.66,SD= 1.95). The 48.1% were females. A principal component analysis resultedin a three-factor structure which that was confirmed in the confirmatoryfactor analyses. The VADRI-MX assesses with 19-double items (perpetrationand victimization) the three dimensions of the dating violence underlyingconstruct: "Direct and severe", "Subtle psychological/controlling", and "Overtpsychological/verbal". Internal consistency was high. Correlations among thethree dimensions were moderate. We can conclude that the VADRI-MX is auseful, valid, and reliable assessment tool for assessing dating violence in theadolescence period. Implications for prevention, intervention, and research arediscussed.
