Resumen

FERRER, Victoria et al. Meta-Analytic Study of Differential Characteristics Between Batterers and Non-Batterers: The Case of Psychopathology and Consumption of Alcohol and Drugs. Psykhe [online]. 2004, vol.13, n.1, pp.141-156. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282004000100012.

Domestic violence has been regarded as an important social problem during the last years. One of the questions that have generated more interest is the perpetrator profile, that is the features that differentiate male batterers from male non-batterers. A raising amount of literature exists on this matter, although conclusions seem yet to be provisional. This piece of research offers a meta-analytic review about the literature that compares male batterers and non-batterers in psychopathology and use of alcohol and drugs. These meta-analytic findings offer support for the existence of limited differences between male batterers and non-batterers in these variables. The implications and limitations of these results are discussed.
