Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

There is a lack of validated short screening instruments specifically addressing conflict and cooperation post-relationship/marital dissolution. Accordingly,thisstudyaimstovalidatethenewly developed Divorce Conflict Scale and evaluate divorce conflict levels in relation to sociodemographic and divorce-related variables. Two samples of recently divorced parents were recruited through the Danish State Administration (sample one n = 1144, sample two n = 420). The instrument fulfilled the recommended criteria in exploratory and confirmatory factor analyses. Women reported high conflict levels and more factors contributed to higherer conflict than men did. The short 6-item Divorce Conflict Scale is a highly applicable measure in research, clinical, and public policy settings.
