Individuals tend to develop strategies of stress control and coping when they are confronted with negative emotions. This research focuses on the strategies of coping and defense developed by women inmates who killed their husband or partner. The results show that the subjects, emotional immature women, tended to use primitive and inefficient methods of coping. We explain our subjects’ choice of nonproductive strategies of coping as a consequence of the posttraumatic stress they suffer from, as a result of the long period of time they were victims of domestic violence.
