Zusammenfassung

Aus den MMPI-Persönlichkeitsprofilen von 82 gewalttätigen Männern, die mit Hilfe standardisierter Fragebögen auf ihre Eignung für ein Antiagressions-training untersucht wurden, konnten mit Hilfe einer Clusteranalyse Familientäter und Borderlinetäter identifiziert werden. Einige externe Variablen wurden in weiterer Folge herangezogen, um zu überprüfen, inwieweit sich die beiden Tätertypen auf diesen Variablen voneinander unterscheiden. Es konnte gezeigt werden, dass sich Borderlinetäter von Familientätern nicht nur hinsichtlich der Schwere ihrer ausgeübten Gewalt und der Häufigkeit anderer assoziierter Gewaltformen unterscheiden, sondern auch bezüglich verschiedener Ärgerdimensionen und im erinnerten väterlichen Erziehungsverhalten. Einige Überlegungen zur intergenerationellen Transmission von Gewalt durch den Vater werden angestellt.

La violence exercée ou vécue dans l'enfance dans l'environnement familial d'hommes souffrant d'un trouble borderline : la validation externe d'un cluster MMPI 1 chez les coupables

Perpetration and childhood experience of violence in the home by men with borderline personality disorder: external validation of MMPI cluster 1 batterers

Abstract

Cluster analysis of 82 MMPI profiles which were gathered as part of a standard assessment process for a training program revealed two different types of violent men. "Family only" and "dysphoric/borderline" types were compared by some external variables. It could be shown that both types differ not only in the severity of their physical violence and the frequency of psychological forms of maltreatment but also in their trait-anger and their recall of violence and rejection by their fathers. Some considerations regarding the intergenerational transmission of violence are performed.
