BOIRA, Santiago  y  JODRA, Pedro. Typology of Men Convicted of Intimate Partner Violence in Psychological Treatment in a Community Setting. rev.latinoam.psicol. [online]. 2013, vol.45, n.2, pp.289-303. ISSN 0120-0534.

This paper presents the study a sample of 61 convicted male batterers who participated in a psychological intervention program provided in the community. The aim is to classify the participants in homogeneous groups in order to detect their differences and similarities and, in particular, those concerning their evaluation of the intervention program. Data from the participants were collected by means of a semi-structured interview, an evaluation based on their expectations and the usefulness of the program, together with the administration of the following instruments: SCL-90-R, IRI, BDHI, IPDMV, MCMI-II and CTS-2. The batterers were classified using cluster analysis and the results suggest the existence of 2 clusters with a strong internal consistency. One cluster is composed by male batterers who are emotionally more stable, with lower drug use rates and a less intense expression of violence. The other group is composed by men who recognized a higher number of minor physical aggressions (CTS-2), with highest scores in the antisocial, passive-aggressive and schizotypal personality dimensions, and also the highest scores in drug use (MCMI-II). However, we have not found statistically significant differences between both clusters with respect to their assessment of the psychological intervention program.
