Evaluating the psychosocial and mental health consequences of abuse among Jordanian women
AbstractThis cross-sectional, descriptive, correlational study evaluated the mental health consequences of abuse amongjordanian women. Standard tools were used to collect data from 93 abused women seeking help at a welfare centre in relation to forms of abuse, depression, coping, suicidal ideation, substance use, social support and self-efficacy. 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. Abused women in mental health and psychosocial risks that could compromise their quality of life
