Resumen

PIMENTEL, Valezka  y  SANTELICES, María Pía. Adult Attachment and Mentalization in Men Who Have Used Violence Toward Their Partner. Psykhe [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.2, pp.1-16. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.7764/psykhe.26.2.915.

The objective of this study was to assess adult attachment and mentalization of 20 men convicted for violence against their partners compared with 20 men with no history regarding this kind of violence, whose ages ranged from 30 to 50 years old. Both groups were purposively recruited from a public hospital in the Region of Valparaíso, Chile. The Conflict Tactics Scales-2 (CTS-2) by Straus, Hamby, Boney-McCoy, and Sugarman (1996) was used to distinguish levels of violence against partners, the Experience in Close Relationships Scale (ECR) by Brennan, Clark, and Shaver (1998) was employed to assess adult attachment, and the Reading the Mind in the Eyes test by Baron-Cohen, Wheelwright, Hill, Raste, and Plumb (2001) was used to assess mentalization. 2, Fisher's exact test, and the MannWhitney U test were used to analyze the attachment and mentalization variables. Results indicate that men who exert violence display more insecure attachment and greater anxiety regarding their attachment to their partners than those with no history of violence, with similar mentalization levels being observed in both groups.

Palabras clave : partner violence; adult attachment; anxiety; avoidance; mentalization.
