Domestic violence is characterized by coercive actions of various kinds (psychological, physical, sexual and eco- nomic) that persist over time; the chronicity of these same actions implies the development of short, medium and long term consequences that compromise the daily functioning of the woman. The aim of this study was to investigate, through a web Survey based on psychophysiological assessments, the relationship between the stress perceived with intimate partner violence and the dysfunctional coping strategies used during the pandemic phase 1 of the health emergency in Italy. The results highlighted a greater sensitivity to perceived stress, resulting in the use of dysfunctional strategies in the management of emergency situations. The levels of perceived anxiety are decreased. High levels of perceived stress produced effects in the management of the health emergency situation, consequences of behavioral, emotional, perceptual and psychophysiological nature (i.e, pain perception, sensory perception, sleep habits).

Abstract

Domestic violence is characterized by coercive actions of various kinds (psychological, physical, sexual and eco- nomic) that persist over time; the chronicity of these same actions implies the development of short, medium and long term consequences that compromise the daily functioning of the woman. The aim of this study was to investigate, through a web Survey based on psychophysiological assessments, the relationship between the stress perceived with intimate partner violence and the dysfunctional coping strategies used during the pandemic phase 1 of the health emergency in Italy. The results highlighted a greater sensitivity to perceived stress, resulting in the use of dysfunctional strategies in the management of emergency situations. The levels of perceived anxiety are decreased. High levels of perceived stress produced effects in the management of the health emergency situation, consequences of behavioral, emotional, perceptual and psychophysiological nature (i.e, pain perception, sensory perception, sleep habits).
