Background and aims:
Ignoring domestic violence as serious social harm can cause irreparable damage to society. The purpose of this study is to investigates the relationship between relationship standards and domestic violence with the mediating role of individual well-being in the hospital staff of Bojnord city.

Methods: The research was designed for correlation through structural equation modeling. The sample consisting of 250 married employees from teaching hospitals in Bojnord city was selected by using the census method. Participants completed the Inventory of Specific Relationship Standards (ISRS), General Well-being Questionnaire (GWB), and Conflict Resolution Tactics Questionnaire (CTS2). The structural modeling analysis, with the application of Anderson & Gerbing's two-step approach through Amos -24 and SPSS-24 software packages was used to test the proposed model. Also, the bootstrapping method was used to evaluate indirect effects.
 Results: The results showed that the relationship standards and individual well-being have a significant relation with the prevention of domestic violence. Also, the mediating effect of individual well-being in the relationship between relationship standards with domestic violence was confirmed (P < 0.0001).
Conclusion: The present study showed the mediator role of personal well-being in the relationship between relationship standards with domestic violence. Therefore, couples therapy interventions can reduce domestic violence by relying on relationship standards as well as educating couples to enhance individual well-being.
