dc.description.abstractEarly experience of abuse may be viewed as a risk factor for mental disorders in women later in life. This case-control study in Isfahan screened 709 women aged 20-45 years using the Beck Depression Inventory and structured clinical interviews for Diagnostic Statistical Manual-IV criteria. Lifetime history of abuse was determined using a standard questionnaire. Among the women 35.1% had experienced fear of or actual abuse [‎physical, sexual or both]‎ in childhood or adolescence. The risk of having major depression in adult life was significantly higher in women who experienced abuse in childhood and adolescence [‎OR 4.3]‎, severe degrees of abuse [‎OR 3.9]‎ or multiple forms of abuse [‎OR 3.8]‎EN
