Male Batterer Profiles: Support for an Empirically Generated Typology
Chiffriller, Sheila H.; Hennessy, James J.
Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, v44 n2-3 p117-131 2006
Domestic violence is an issue that affects different sides of society; numerous studies have shown that it is a problem that is increasing. This study used a discriminant analysis to identify those scales that might be more effective at predicting group membership among batterer types: pathological batterers, sexually violent batterers, generally violent batterers, psychological violent batterers and family-only batterers. The purpose of this study was to measure batterer behaviors and how the batterer types differ in terms of attachment styles, conflict resolution, psychopathology, jealousy, and alcohol abuse. (Contains 1 table and 3 figures.)
