This conference served as an inauguration for the validation of BWSQ-S project that will take place in Costa Rica. With the collaboration of INAMU, the validity of the instrument will be tested by collecting data from battered women who speak Spanish. The aim of the study is not only to validate the instrument but to learn about cultural differences in the psychological ramifications of being exposed to violence repetitively.
