|Title:||Executive dysfunction and domestic violence||Contributor(s):||Marsh, Nigel Vincent (author); Martinovich, W M (author)||Publication Date:||2006||DOI:||10.1080/02699050500110645||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/3511||Abstract:||Primary objective: To replicate previous studies which have reported a high prevalence of traumatic brain injury (TBI) in partner-abusive men and to extend research in this area by determining the prevalence of executive dysfunctions, which have been linked with both TBI and violent behaviour. Research design: Thirty-eight men with criminal convictions for violence and who were receiving treatment for abusing their partners were assessed. Methods and procedures: Subjects with a self-reported history of TBI (n = 22) were compared to the non-TBI group (n = 16) on various psychological measures. Main outcomes and results: The two groups were not significantly different on the variables of age, pre-morbid IQ, self-esteem and alcohol use. The TBI group scored more poorly than the non-TBI group on a measure of current IQ and two of the three measures of executive functioning. Conclusion: The presence of executive dysfunction has implications for the design of successful intervention programmes with this sub-group of batterers.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Brain Injury, 20(1), p. 61-66||Publisher:||Taylor & Francis||Place of Publication:||London, UK||ISSN:||0269-9052||Field of Research (FOR):||170106 Health, Clinical and Counselling Psychology||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 101
