Domestic Violence Inventory Pre-Post

The Domestic Violence Inventory Pre-Post or DVI Pre-Post is an objective and standardized test assessing treatment program effectiveness. The DVI Pre-Post consists of a pretest (at pretreatment) and posttest (at treatment completion). Computer comparison of pretest and posttest scores results in a comparison report.

The Pretest serves as a baseline against which the Posttest is compared. The same test is used as the Pretest and Posttest. Court and treatment history are minimized and the time referent is "here-and-now."


The DVI Pre-Post contains 147 items and takes 25 minutes to complete. The DVI Pre-Post is a computer scored self-report test that provides a reliable and valid Comparison Report within 2 1/2 minutes of data entry.

The DVI Pre-Post has six scales or measures:

1. Truthfulness Scale
2. Violence (Lethality) Scale
3. Control Scale

4. Alcohol Scale
5. Drugs Scale
6. Stress Management Scale

The DVI Pre-Post is empirically or research based. It has empirically demonstrated reliability, validity and accuracy. This research is reported at www.BDS-Research.com.
