Abstract
This study examined the relationship between level of depression and level of psychological abuse in women. In addition, the relationship between the use of self-report and measured report of psychological abuse within an intimate relationship was assessed. One hundred women were surveyed using the Psychological Maltreatment of Women Inventory (PMWI) and the Beck Depression Inventory (BDI). Results form the PMWI, the BDI and self-report measures were compared and analyzed. Statistical results indicated that a significant relationship existed between level of depression and level of psychological abuse. In addition, self-report was not predictive of psychological abuse as measured by the PMWI.
