Erdem, Ahmet; Sahin, Rukiye
International Journal of Higher Education, v6 n6 p91-105 2017
In this research, whether the undergraduates' attitude levels towards the dating violence differed in terms of gender, dating relationship status, being exposed to the dating violence and resorting to the dating violence was investigated. The sample of the study was composed of 1171 undergraduates. In the research, "The Attitudes toward Dating Violence Scales," "Ambivalent Sexism Scale," "Ambivalence toward Men Scale," "Narcissistic Personality Inventory," and "Personal Information Form" were used as the data collection tools. In conclusion, significant differences were determined in the university students' attitudes towards the dating violence according to the different demographic variables (gender, dating relationship status, being exposed to the dating violence and resorting to the dating violence). Moreover, university students' attitudes towards dating violence were determined to positively and significantly correlate with their ambivalence sexism levels. Ambivalence toward men was determined to positively and significantly correlate with their attitudes towards dating violence. In addition, university students' narcissistic personality traits were found to positively and significantly correlate with their attitudes towards dating violence.
