LLOPIS GIMENEZ, C.; RODRIGUEZ GARCIA, M.I.  y  HERNANDEZ MANCHA, I.. Relation between alcohol consumption and violence of men towards their relationships in the UVIVG of Seville (Spain). Cuad. med. forense [online]. 2014, vol.20, n.4, pp.151-169. ISSN 1988-611X.

This article examines the possible relation between alcohol consumption and violence of men towards women with whom they share or have shared a relationship. Our sample is composed of 50 couples analyzed under the Comprehensive Assessment of Gender Violence Unit (UVIVG) of Seville (Spain), during 2013 and 2014. It has been used an structured interview which has been created ad hoc, as well as the MINI, MALT and CAGE questionnaires. In 25 of the 50 analyzed couples, the woman, who had denounced, declared that her partner consumed alcohol and that he often consumed other substances of abuse. Nevertheless, this consumption was only diagnosed in 16 of those men. The women of the other half of the sample denied any consumption of substances of abuse by their partners. The results obtained from the analyzed sample shows that men who consume alcohol are more violent towards their partners when they are sober, than when they are drunk. However, the alcohol consumption increases the frequency of violent actions. Moreover, the results of the analysis reveal that men who do not consume alcohol resort to violence in a lower percentage than those who consume alcohol.

Palabras clave : Alcohol consumption; Gender violence; Violence increase.
