Why Women Won’t Leave their Abusive Partners: Traumatic Bonding Theory
Abstract
This paper attempted to apply Grounded theory and Traumatic Bonding theory to the question “Why women won’t leave their abusive relationship”. An experiment was conducted with 22 women from a Women’s Support Group who agreed to take part. A 12 point questionnaire was administered using variable synonymous with the two theories considered but the results were inconclusive. Limitations to the study included the population type and size and the lack of a control group.
