«[T]he aim of this study was to adapt a French-Canadian version of the CRSI [Conflict Resolution Styles Inventory] […] to the specific context of adolescence.» (p. 338)
The authors «expected a positive relationship between constructive strategies and quality of the relationship and a negative association of constructive strategies with emotion regulation difficulties. Opposite findings were expected for destructive strategies.» (p. 339)
«To validate the French-Canadian adaptation of the CRSI, two studies were conducted, first to explore the factor structure and psychometric properties and then to replicate these findings in a different sample.» (p. 338) For the first study, «[t]he sample of 262 adolescents […] was selected according to the following inclusion criteria: […] being aged between 14 and 19 years and […] having experienced a dating relationship lasting at least 1 month without cohabiting with their partner. […] Recruitment was conducted on a voluntary basis in high schools, colleges, and universities from Montreal, as well as through social networks.» (p. 338) For the second study, «[t]he sample consisted of 221 adolescents […]. The eligibility criteria were the same as those applied in Study 1 with the exception that teens had to be in a current dating relationship to participate.» (p. 339)
Type de traitement des données :
«Three clearly distinguishable factors were found, corresponding to Positive Problem Solving, Conflict Engagement, and Withdrawal. Contrary to our expectation, the two distinct constructive strategies, compromise and collaboration, fused to form a single factor (Positive Problem Solving).» (p. 341) «Regarding convergent validity, all the correlations were in the expected direction, except for the use of conflict engagement strategies and quality of the relationship, where no significant association was observed. Dating relationships are known to present higher levels of negative interactions than in adulthood […]. Thus, adopting destructive behaviours (e.g., getting carried away or making hurtful comments) might be considered a normative way of resolving conflicts during adolescence and could possibly be confused with commitment or love. Although the levels of conflict engagement observed in the current sample were rather low and did not show much variation, it is possible that they were not common enough to adversely affect the quality of the relationship.» (p. 341) «In sum, the results of this study provide preliminary evidence of the reliability and validity for the French-Canadian adaptation of the CRSI […].» (p. 341)
