The most commonly reported form of abuse was psychological abuse. Applying the Beck Depression Inventory showed that 38.7% of the abused women had moderate to severe levels of depression. Although half the women had a low level of perceived social support, abused Jordanian women reported moderate to very high levels of self-efficacy and used coping more frequently than avoidance coping strategies. Using the Modified Scale for Suicide ldeation, 15.7% of the women reported that the desire for death was stronger than the desire for life.
