Herbert, Tracy Bennett; And Others
Journal of Marriage and the Family, v53 n2 p311-25 May 1991
Examined how women cope with physical and emotional abuse while remaining with their abusive partners. Of 130 women who had experienced conflict or violence in close heterosexual relationship, 44 were still involved in abusive relationship. Findings suggest that women who stay with abusive partners employ cognitive strategies that help them perceive their relationship in positive light. (Author/NB)
