The purpose of the present study is to validate Validating and Invalidating Response Scale (VIRS, Lee et al., in progress) in Korea. College women (N=346) who have experienced an abusive relationship participated in this study and they completed the translated Validating and Invalidating Response Scale, Conflict Tactics Scale-II (CTS-II), the Psychological Maltreatment of Women Inventory-S (PMWI-S), and Relationship Satisfaction Inventory (RSI). The result of exploratory factor analysis (EFA) of K-VIRS suggested one factor structure. Data analysis showed: 1) high reliability of the VIRS (Cronbach's Ձ=.922); 2) appropriate levels of convergent validity, evidenced by moderate correlations with the CTS-II (r=−.457, p<.001), the PMWI-S (r=−.473, p<.001), and RSI (r=.537, p<.001). In addition, K-VIRS showed significant regression with the Korean version of the Difficulties in Emotion Regulation Scale (K-DERS, R2=.05, F (1,319)=17.31, p<.000) and RSI (R2=.29, F (1,313)=126.62, p<.000), indicating victims who have experienced dating violence experience difficulties regulating their emotions and low relationship satisfaction in the relationship. The treatment and research utility of using the construct of validation/invalidation with current and former victims individually and in couples will be discussed and further research establishing the incremental.
