BARRIA M, Javier. Personality disorders and psychopathology in a sample of Chilean men perpetrators: eight types of abusers. Rev. chil. neuro-psiquiatr. [online]. 2014, vol.52, n.4, pp.281-287. ISSN 0717-9227.

The article presents the main findings of Barría on the presence of personality disorders in a sample of Chilean men abusive with their intimate partner. 77.7% of offenders have some type of personality disorder, and 37% have 1 to 5 disorders. Another important finding is that the batterers have common features such as difficulty of expression of anger and its internal and external control; Fearful / disorganized and preoccupied styles of attachment, and misogynist and male chauvinist beliefs about women and violence. From the findings, a typological synthesis establishing eight (8) types of batterers is performed.

Keywords : Batterer man; domestic violence; personality disorders; psychopathology.
