    Abstract

    The overarching aim of this research study was to gain a greater understanding of the reasons why some women choose to remain in abusive relationships. It is the author’s hope that this research study will better enable health and social care professionals to provide more effective support and assistance to battered women in future practice situations.
    Three recurring themes have been identified as being strong causal and contributory factors that result in a woman’s choosing to remain with a violent partner. These themes have been critically analysed and evaluated in separate chapters, and a critique has been provided for each.
    The author found that women remain in abusive relationships for a myriad of reasons, and each battered woman will have her own reasons for doing so.
