Attitudes Toward Rape Victims
  • Elklit, A. (2002). Attitudes Toward Rape Victims. Journal of Scandinavian Studies in Criminology and Crime Prevention, 3, (1), 73-83.

The present study assessed the contribution of gender, age, education and traumatic experiences on attitudes toward rape victims. The Attitudes Toward Rape Victims Scale (ARVS) was completed by 312 website visitors who entered the Danish website: The site is designed to meet the needs of rape victims in acute distress as well as the needs of the public and of professionals. The analysis of ARVS showed a three-dimensional factor structure. Males had less favourable attitudes toward rape victims than tudes did women; but attitudes became more favourable as age and education increased. The experience of rape, accidents and losing someone close also influenced the attitudes in a favourable direction. The data analysis is equivalent to the more traditionally collected samples, which gives credibility to the use of website-based studies of attitudes. The Danish sample had more favourable attitudes toward rape victims than a Singaporean student sample, a US male student sample and an Australian student sample, but less favourable than a US female student sample. The ARVS seems to be a valuable and sensitive instrument for crosscultural research in victimology.

Coping Styles Questionnaire
  • Elklit, A. (1996). Coping Styles Questionnaire: A further validation of a scale for measuring coping strategies. Personality and Individual Differences, 21, 809-812.

    The present study describes a contribution to the validation of the Coping Styles Questionnaire (CSQ); which is a scale for measuring coping strategies. An earlier study had suggested that there were four primary coping clusters: instrumental, emotional, avoidance, and distancing. This validation of CSQ confirmed the existence of the four clusters, but there was only partial agreement on the composition of the distancing component. Therefore, the CSQ should be used only with some modifications.

    Theodore Millon introduced his Millon inventories to Europe for the first time at the International Congress "Clinical Implications of the MMPI," held at the Department of Psychiatry, Nordvang Hospital, University of Copenhagen, in 1983. Millon also presented pertinent historical literature and elaborated on his fundamental perspectives regarding the interaction of personality and psychopathology. Impressed and inspired by his innovative, systematic, and timely insights into the varying schools of psychopathology, a group of Danish psychiatrists and psychologists formed a "Millon study group." The members of the group were a strong and creative mixture of psychoanalysts, behaviorists, neuropsychologists, experienced clinicians, and researchers, who gathered regularly and had in common a genuine curiosity about psychopathology. Each one paid respect to others' ideas and experiences in working with psychopathology, and all were inspired to broaden their own views. By furthering their exploration of Millon's inventories and theories, the group members sought to investigate the impact of understanding a patient's psychopathology on the choice and planning of treatment. Important sources for group discussions and clinical vignettes included Millon's newly released seminal book. Disorders of Personality: DSM-III, Axis II (Millon, 1981), select Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory-I (MCMI-I) patient profiles, and other available clinical evaluations and psychological tests. As one result of the group's meetings, the members agreed that there was a pressing need for a Danish translation of the MCMI. The MCMI is one of the few self-report tests that focus on both symptoms and personality disorders and their relationship. The MCMI-I was developed in 1977, and it was subsequently revised in 1987 and 1994 (Millon, 1977, 1987, 1994). In this chapter, we discuss first how the translation of the MCMI-I into Danish took place, and then describe the efforts to improve and revise a subsequent translation with guidance of empirical research

Posttraumatisk vækst

    Forskning inden for posttraumatisk vækst (PTG) er i dag karakteriseret ved divergerende forskningsresultater, som har gjort det vanskeligt at drage en kohærent lære om fænomenet. Nærværende artikel er et kritisk review over publicerede artikler fra 2004 til 2010, som omhandler validiteten af de nuværende målinger af PTG, med særligt fokus på de kvantitative skalaer, der oftest anvendes til at måle PTG: Post Traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI) og Stress Related Growth Scale (SRGS). Begge skalaer har vist acceptabel reliabilitet, men der er en række bekymringer vedrørende deres validitet. Nærværende review identificerer seks validitetsproblemer med de nuværende målinger af PTG og lægger op til en kritisk diskussion om validitetsforbedrende tiltag i forhold til fremtidig forskning i PTG.


The Crisis Support Scale
  • Elklit, A., Pedersen, S.S. & Jind, L. (2001). The Crisis Support Scale: Psychometric qualities and further validation. Personality and Individual Differences, 31, (8), 1291-1302. Doi:

    The objective of the present study was to provide a further validation of the Crisis Support Scale, which is a short scale for measuring social support after a crisis has occurred. The data from eleven trauma studies of 4213 subjects were used to investigate the psychometric properties of the scale and the differences that emerge due to age, gender, and type of trauma. The scale appears to be very robust. Some aspects of crisis support seem to decrease as time goes by while others increase. Women survivors report less support than men both right after the trauma and later on. The younger survivors tend to report the least support in the acute phase although this picture is reversed later on. The various types of trauma have different item profiles, which supports the concurrent validity of the scale.
