The purpose of this study was to develop and examine the validity of the causal model
of attitudes toward violent behavior of The Matthayomsueksa 5 in the Secondary Educational

sampling technique. The tools used for the study were the measurements of attitudes toward
violence behaviour, teacher’s Violence, family violence, peers, media, adversity quotient,
emotional intelligence self esteem self control and attitude to violence which had their reliabilities
at .935, .935, .934, .855, .836, .803, .853, .847 and .830 respectively. Data were analyzed by latent
variable of path analysis of structural equation modeling (SEM).
The results of the study were as follows:
1) The causal model of attitudes toward violent behavior of The Matthayomsueksa 5
in the Secondary Educational Service Area Office 21 was consisted with empirical data regarding
2
χ = 271.23, df =259, χ 2/df = 1.133, p = .288, CFI = 1.00, GFI= .982, AGFI = .968, RMSEA = .007,
RMR = .017 2) The variable directly affecting attitudes toward violence behaviour was self control
