Abstract: 

The purpose of present research is to compare abuse, mental health and religious orientation in runaway and normal girls, The sample group of the research involves 25 runaway girls aged 17-25 that are being protected in the shelters for runawat girls, and 25 normal girls with the same qualities that were selected from a park in the southern part of Tehran, as comparison group. In order to assess religious orientation, mental health and the amount and the intensity of abuse, we used Religious Orientation Scale (Bahrami Ehsan, 1381), General Health Questionnaire (Goldberg, 1978) and researcher-made Abuse Questionnaire in sequence. The results show a significant difference in all variables between two groups. The group of runaway girls obtained higher scores in disorganization subscale of Religious Orientation Scale and in all subscales of Abuse Questionnaire (the intensity of abuse and the intensity of injury), and hence in total abuse. But the runaway girls obtained significantly lower scores in all mental health variables and religiosity subscale of Religious Orientation Scale, than normal girls. There wasn't any significant difference in religious pretentiousness and hedonistic subscales of Religious Orientation Scale between two groups.
