Abstract (Summary)

Insufficient data access could impede the success of diagnosis, treatment, and even the outcomes. Domestic violence is an age-long universal problem, which is found to be the hidden cause of some medical and mental diagnoses across the lifespan. Despite different endeavors employed over the centuries to intercept its ravaging; little is achieved. Psychotherapy is deduced to be the best approach among others offering adaptive measures to promote healthy coping skills but the denial, non-admittance, and poor report of domestic violence is of great concern. Unfortunately, psychotherapy clinicians do not have diagnostic tools like lab work or imaging studies to discover the undisclosed like their counterparts in the acute setting. Studies confirmed the fact that the screening tools are cheap but they are rarely utilized in the clinical settings. This Clinical Scholarly Project utilized a quasi-experimental design in the study that involved a total of 62 non-randomly selected male and female participants who met the inclusion criteria. Using the SPSS version 24, the positive impacts of the domestic screening tool were ascertained with a statistical significance Mdiff = 3.69, with the use of HITS, which could not have been achieved without this intervention (SEdiff = 1.92), t(60) = 2.48, p = .01. In addition, the independent sample t-test supported the significance reflecting the probability for a two-tailed test with df = 60 is .01 which supports p < .05 including the confidence interval (CI) Mdiff = 3.69, 95% CI [0.55, 5.93] with a medium effect size (r2 = .093).
