LOINAZ, Ismael; ECHEBURUA, Enrique  y  ULLATE, María. Attachment Style, Empathy and Self-Esteem in Partner-Violent Men. Ter Psicol [online]. 2012, vol.30, n.2, pp. 61-70. ISSN 0718-4808.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-48082012000200006.

It is common to refer emotional variables to describe the profile of partner-violent men as well as to include them in treatment programs. This study compares scores on adult attachment, empathy and self-esteem of 90 offenders in prison and a control group from the general population (N = 94). Both samples were assessed with the Adult Attachment Questionnaire, the Interpersonal Reactivity Index and the Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale. The offenders were also classified into two clusters to assess the possible existence of a pathological subtype and other similar to the control group. The results show no significant differences between groups. Although the prevailing hypothesis in the academic context has not been confirmed, the results are consistent with recent studies that indicate no differences between aggressors and control groups. The effect of the assessment tools on the results and their usefulness for interventions are discussed.

Palabras clave : Partner-violent men; adult attachment; empathy; self-esteem.
