ABSTRACT

This study is to examine the validity of the investment model accompanied by the altruistic delusion variable when dating violence victims maintain their violent relationships. The investment model states that dating violence victims consider their satisfaction level, quality of alternatives, and investment level to determine their commitment level in their relationship. And those variables contribute to the maintenance of their relationship. The altruistic variable is dating violence victims' belief that they can change their partners' violent behaviors by themselves. South Korean women who were in their 20s (N=227) provided self-reported data, and 110 people were endorsed as dating violence victims according to the researcher's standard. The investment model turned out to be effective when applied to South Korea's victims of dating violence who were maintaining their relationships. Also, the new investment model which is composed of the past investment model and altruistic delusion variable had a better prediction to explain the reasons victims' did not leave their violent relationships. In the following studies, the investment model should be applied to homosexuals, married couples, male victims, and other participants who have a different social economic status to generalize the investment model's validity.
