Abstract


The main purpose of this study is to investigate whether marital women's gender perceptions and spiritual well-being are important predictors of psychological violence profiles that their husbands are exposed to. Three scales were used to collect data in the study.  To measure women's gender perceptions; The Gender Perception Scale developed by Altınova and Duyan was used, to measure the spiritual well-being; The Spiritual Well-Being Scale developed by Ekşi and Kardaş was used and  and to measure the level of psychological abuse they are exposed to; Psychological Exploitation Profiling Scale was used which adaptedby Boyacıoğlu, Uysal and Erdugan. A sufficient number of samples have been reached to represent the universe and the responses of 306 women have been taken into account in the analyzes.  As a result, the data were analyzed in the SPSS 22 Package program and the model was tested in the AMOS 20 Package Program. First, difference test analyzes were conducted (sex, duration of marriage, number of children, socioeconomic status). After these analyzes, gender perceptions and spiritual well-being, which are the main goals of studying, have been examined to determine levels of psychological abuse. As a result of the analysis, there was a significant inverse relation between gender perceptions and psychological abuse. The difference between spiritual well-being and psychological abuse was not found significant. Later, the study was supported by the relevant literature and the study was finalized.
