Abstract Approximately 15\% of married or cohabiting women and as many as 60\% of battered women are raped at least once by their partners. This study compared community-based counseling outcomes of battered women with outcomes of women who were both raped and battered by their partners. Over time, both groups improved in wellbeing and coping. Although those both battered and raped progressed more in counseling, they had lower scores before and after counseling compared to women who were battered only. Implications for research and intervention are discussed. This article was published in J Interpers Violence and referenced in Journal of Forensic Research
