The questions were: What are the main features of previous research regarding abuse of women's social interactions and identity formation? How can abusive women's social identity formation interpreted from a social psychological perspective and a gender perspective The methodology for collecting data was a literature search on Scopus, PsycINFO, ProQuest, and Luleå University's own database Primo.
