Abstract

POZUECO-ROMERO, José M.; MORENO-MANSO, Juan M.; BLAZQUEZ-ALONSO, Macarena  and  GARCIA-BAAMONDE, María E.. The psychopathic intimate partner batterer: a non-psychopathological profile. Anal. Psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.30, n.1, pp.25-36. ISSN 1695-2294.  http://dx.doi.org/10.6018/analesps.30.1.147101.

This theoretical study reviews two of the most cited profiles of intimate partner batterers in the scientific literature, paying special attention to the most notable differences between them, as well as to their common criteria. The study also discusses one of the longest standing controversies in various research studies, including the particular overview with respect to Spain: it being the constant yet erroneous reference to the equivalence of psychopathy and antisocial personality disorder. Similarly, special attention is paid to the implications of considering intimate partner batterers as having either a psychopathological or psychopathic profile, while also stressing the specific role played by psychopathy in the intimate partner batterer and, concerning psychopathic intimate partner batterers, such aspects as their specific motives for perpetrating intimate partner violence and the evaluation instruments of this particular profile. Finally, a series of future directives for research concerning psychopathic intimate partner batterers are also pointed out.

Keywords : Abuse; psychopathy; antisocial personality disorder; intimate partner violence.
