Previous research has identified men's level of anger as one of the predictors of intimate partner violence (IPV). However, few studies have tried to empirically explore the underlying factors influencing anger in men who perpetrate IPV. Objective: The purpose of this study is to identify the contribution of attachment style to the level of anger experienced by men perpetrators of IPV. Method: Eighty men enrolled in IPV therapy completed self-report questionnaires of attachment and anger. Result: Multiple regressions revealed that avoidant and anxious attachment styles had a significant influence in explaining anger in violent men. Conclusion: These findings indicate the importance of considering attachment style in the understanding and treatment of anger in IPV perpetrators.
