Sofija Georgievska

Abstract


This research used a convenience sample. It was included 62 respondents of which 31 reported domestic violence in the centers for social work in the period from October 2015 to March 2016. The remaining 31 women reported that they want to par-ticipate in research and served as a control group that was likened to a group of women who reported domestic violence.
Results obtained by testing specific hypotheses have shown that domestic vio-lence does not affect rising risk of suicidal behavior, partly confirmed the main hypothe-sis which asserts that domestic violence affects the occurrence of PTSD, increased anx-iety, depression and risk of suicide behavior.
