Experiencing domestic violence may trigger negative feelings, like sadness, anger, and shame. Previous studies also found that victims likely to have depression and suicidal thougth. This study aim to describe the level of emotional expressiveness among 51 women who experienced domestic violence in Indonesia. The method in this research is non-experimental quantitative descriptive method. Measurement of the emotional expressiveness among participants is using the Emotional Expressivity Scale (EES) with good reliability. This study provide acknowledgement that most participants show moderate level of emotional expressiveness and 12% participants tend to hide their emotion outwardly to other people. This study may trigger further study about this topic. Social support and relationship quality may also be considered in studying the emotional expressiveness among participants who experienced domestic violence. Objectivity and specification of the violence type experienced by participants must be considered for further study.
