## Revictimization in women experiencing domestic violence. The role of early maladaptive schemas

### Michał Sieński

#### Abstract

The presented study had two primary objectives: (1) to identify psychosocial risk factors for revictimization in women experiencing domestic violence, as well as (2) to verify a hypothetical psychosocial mechanism leading to the occurrence of this phenomenon. The study was conducted on a group of 238 adult women. The following questionnaires were used in the study: CTQ, CTS2-R, DES-II, YSQ-S3; SMI. The conducted between-group comparisons indicated two specific risk factors for the experience of revictimization. A higher intensity of the mistrust/abuse schema than in the comparison groups, as well as a stronger tendency to activate the mode of submission to the schema. In turn, the results of the analyses of relationships confirmed the assumed relationships between variables. It turned out that the experience of violence in childhood can predict the occurrence of revictimization after taking into account 3 factors: the severity of symptoms of dissociative disorders, the mistrust/abuse schema, as well as the surrender schema mode.
