RODRIGUEZ IPINA, Isabel  y  GUZMAN CORTES, Jorge Alberto. Neuropsychological profile of women victims of intimate partner violence. La ventana [online]. 2023, vol.7, n.58, pp.185-217.  Epub 28-Ago-2023. ISSN 1405-9436.

Intimate partner violence is a problem that mainly affects women. Some studies have shown that there are neuropsychological effects in women who have been victims of violence. These changes can occur due to head injuries, or as a result of psychopathologies that victims usually experience such as depression, Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Despite the fact that violence against women is a national and international problem, there is not enough evidence about the neuropsychological effects of violence on women. The objective of this research is to analyze the cognitive performance of women who have been victims of intimate partner violence in the last year. Cognitive performance was assessed through the Brief Neuropsychological Evaluation in Spanish-NEUROPSI, and the presence of psychopathological symptoms with the use of Beck depression inventory II, mexican version of Beck’s anxiety inventory and post traumatic stress disorder checklist for DSM-5. To later compare the results at intra-group level and determine the characteristics of the sample. A strong negative correlation (-.639) was found between PTSD and TFE. Finally, a Mann-Whitney U for the TFE, where the grouping variable was the absence or presence of PTSD, a significant difference was found in favor of the group without PTSD (p=.007). Knowing the cognitive performance of women who have experienced violence will make important contributions that would impact on care to victims in both health and legal areas.
