The mediating effects of cognitive variables on psychological symptoms due to the experiences of psychological violence


This study was to recognize the influences of psychological violence experience by husbands on their wives' psychological symptoms and to verify the effects of cognitive variables which mediates that process. We assumed that psychological violence without physical violence could influence on psychological symptoms and wife's cognitive variables (e.g, dysfunctional attitude, positive & negative automatic thoughts) would mediate that process. To verify these hypotheses, structural equating method was administered. As the results, cognitive variables appeared to play a mediating role in the theoretical model which was proved statistically meaningful. The most valuable implication of this study is that the cognitive model could be applied to the influence of psychological violence. Especially, negative automatic thought did crucial role in the whole process. So, even though these restricted research findings, cognitive variables should be considered for the improvement of psychological difficulties of female victims. Finally, limitations of the study and the directions for future research were discussed.
