Abstract

Dating can create a real hazard if there is violence involved, especially if contextualized by a world that has been constructed to privilege men. This issue cannot be separated from the patriarchal culture adhered to by most Indonesian people, where men are considered more powerful than women. This sometimes leads to violence against girls. Dating violence can occur in several forms, and it impacts both physical and mental health. Victims of violence usually experience a decrease in self-esteem, depression, anxiety, overwhelming fear and anger, somatic symptoms, to post traumatic stress disorder (Dewi, 2018). Trauma is one of the serious psychological effects experienced by victims of dating violence. Long lasting trauma, physically and mentally, changes the life of a victim. The purpose of this preliminary literature review is to explain the phenomena of trauma that occur in women victims of dating violence and build a canvas for further in-depth study.
