Understanding Abusive Relationships

By: Psychologist María Hernández Del Rincón. Zaragoza - Spain

Women experience the brunt of violence. The alarming rate of violence has been the cause for increased study of aggressors in the scientific community.  

In light of this, the questions most frequently asked are:

Why do men abuse women?

Is there a typical profile that would help in identifying one?

To try to answer these questions, we must emphasize that in speaking of violence we refer to a complex learned behavior and  multidimensional in its expression and multifactorial in its causation, covering both physical violence and psychological  violence.

In studies, we found that bullies often have significant psychological deficiencies, such as cognitive biases (distorted thoughts about sex roles and the inferiority of women and the justification of violence), difficulties in communication and problem solving, irritability and a lack of impulse control and other specific problems (alcohol-drug addiction which acts as disinhibiting, existence of pathological jealousy, emotional instability or a personality disorder, the most frequently encountered antisocial, the limit and narcissistic).
