Abstract

The purpose of this work is to carry out the Turkish validity and reliability study of the Negative Maintenance Scale (NMS) developed by Dainton and Gross (2008). The research was conducted with a total of 505 students, 352 female and 153 male, who are first, second, third, and fourth year students enrolled in various departments of the Faculty of Education of Dokuz Eylül University. The six-factor structure of the scale was tested by confirmatory factor analysis. The obtained findings validated the six-factor structure of the NMS. The language validity of the scale was also examined. The reliability of the NMS was measured with test-retest reliability and internal consistency methods. Results indicated that the NMS is a valid and reliable measurement tool for assessing the maintenance strategies of negative relationships in young adults.
