Abstract EN

The problem of the study lies in replying to the following research questions: What types of violence are practiced against the battered students (wives)? Which type is the most commonly practiced one? Is it the physical violence, economic violence, psychological violence, sexual violence? What is the extent of effect of violence in its different forms on the psychological health of the battered students (wives).

This research addresses the following issues: 1- To be more aware of the most widely or commonly practiced types of violence against the battered students (wives) whether this violence takes the forms of physical violence, economic violence, psychological violence or sexual violence.

2- To be more aware of the violence’s impact on the psychological health of the battered students (wives).

This research is restricted to the battered students (wives) who refer to the Psychological and Educational Guidance and Counseling Unit in the Deanship of Students/ University of Sharjah, and the Psychological and Educational Guidance and Counseling Unit at Girls College of Education / University of Baghdad.

The two researchers identified this as the battered students (wives): who referred to the Psychological and Educational Guidance and Counseling Unit in the Deanship of Students / University of Sharjah Affairs, and the Unity of Psychological and Educational Guidance at Girls College of Education/ University of Baghdad, where they were actually diagnosed as being exposed to one of the physical or psychological, sexual or economic violence.

The two researchers defined the mental health as the imbalances in the psychological functions resulting from violence against wives where we can infer this through the degree obtained by the battered wife through her answers to questions included in the (symptoms list) which is amended and adopted in this research.

The theoretical framework of the concepts of research has been shown in some theories such as Freud's analytical approach, the social learning theory, and the previous studies pertaining to the concepts dealt with in this research.

The research samples includes (83 battered students (wives)) where the two researchers have built the psychological health scale, verified its psychometric properties in terms of (sincerity, steadiness and excellence) and used the appropriate statistical methods.

The findings of the current research were presented and interpreted and they have made some recommendations and proposals.
