As far as personal traits we found that the men had certain things in... (More)

The result of the study shows that there aren’t any specific differences when it comes to social background, such as income or social status in regards of the abuser. As far as personal traits we found that the men had certain things in common, such as low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, insecurity and that they frequently felt inferior. Furthermore we also found that violence in their upbringing was the most common reason to why these men engaged themselves in violence. Power and control were the most crucial other factors to the emergence of violence. As far as treatment goes, different types of therapy seemed to be the most helpful in their recovery, both individual or in group sessions. (Less)
