It is difficult to provide an intelligent information with so little information. You might check into the work of Cherly Gadsby who coauthored Reclaiming Herstory, which is an Ericksonian text on working with abuse. Also, check the work of Yvonne Dolan. Francine Shapiro's EMDR method might help.
You might try to get her to hypnotically imagine a situation of high risk and concomitant abuse, enter into the image and have her describe the feelings so that you both can better understand. Then you can create a protector ego state who can help her to stay out of such situations.
