Implicit theories in intimate partner violence offenders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Cognitive characteristics of intimate partner violence (IPV) offenders have received considerable attention recently. The implicit theories underlying these cognitions have yet to be evidenced using accounts of IPV males. In this study, interpretative phenomenological analysis was used to analyze interview transcripts of six IPV offenders currently serving a custodial sentence in a Scottish prison to identify potential implicit theories.
