Affective Orientations of Perpetrators, Victims, and Functional Spouses.
Yelsma, Paul
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v11 n2 p141-61 Jun 1996
Examines and compares affective orientations of 79 perpetrators, 57 victims, and 70 functional spouses. Perpetrators were significantly more alexithymic than functional spouses but not significantly different from victims. Deficit of positive affect versus the presence of negative affect was a significant indicator of physical abuse reported within intimate relationships. Discusses other findings. (KW)
