dc.description.abstract This study is described within a social constructionist perspective, which explores the experiences of abuse on women by their intimate partners and the resultant trauma will be fully explored. The women are battered, raped, beaten, emotionally, verbally, and psychologically abused by their partners. To add on the partner abuse, the patriarchal, social-economic, political, cultural, historical, traditional, criminal and mental health systems also perpetuate the abuses. However, from the inhuman exposures there are prevailing traumatic effects that are destructive to the lives of women victims. They may lose their newly or unborn infants, abuse substances, attempt or complete suicide, suffer chronic medical problems and psychological disorders that are an enormous sense of loss to their esteem, confidence, pride, dignity, and identity (self). en
