Measuring Economic Abuse in the Lives of Survivors. Revising the Scale of Economic Abuse

Authors: Judy L. Postmus, Sara-Beth Plummer, Amanda M. Stylianou
Recent attention has been given by researchers to understanding how abusers use economic abuse strategies. Unfortunately, limited measures are available to accurately understand the prevalence of economic abuse in the lives of survivors. Recently, researchers created the 28-item Scale of Economic Abuse (SEA) but further validation is needed. This article describes the psycho-metric evaluation of the SEA through confirmatory and exploratory factor analyses using data col-lected with 120 survivors of abuse. The findings provide evidence for the reliability and validity of the SEA-12 as a shorter instrument to measure economic abuse as a distinct form of abuse.
