Abstract: 

Domestic violence is an instance of aggressive behavior with a host of physical, psychological, economic, and sexual aspects. It is a top priority due to its significant effects on women's health.
Purpose: This study examined the impact of life skills training on marital adjustment of women for the prevention of domestic violence.
Method: This was a quasi-experimental study with pretest and posttest design. It was performed on 94 women supported by Imam Khomeini Relief Committee in Ardabil, Iran, in 2015. The subjects were randomly selected. The data collection instruments included demographic data and Rosenberg’s self-esteem questionnaires. Educational intervention was designed as three educational sessions lasting 120 minutes each.45 days after the intervention, the second test was administered.
Funding: Before the intervention, the mean score of marital adjustment was 5.29 which significantly increased to 6.64 after the intervention (P<0.001). The linear regression analysis showed a significant relationship between life skills training and marital adjustment after the educational program. There was a significant relationship between the level of violence before the intervention and after that (P<0.001).
Results: Life skills education is effective in increasing marital adjustment and reducing violence against women.
