Abstract [en]

Research of recidivism among intimate partner violence (IPV) perpetrator subtypes has demonstrated inconclusive results. The present study sought to outline the recidivism patterns between two subtypes; antisocial and family-only perpetrators. The aim of this study was to compare these subtypes regarding IPV recidivism rates and type of recidivism crime. We also explored and compared time to IPV recidivism between the subtypes. In this prospective study data was obtained from the Swedish police. The material constituted of 628 male IPV perpetrators subjected to a structured violence risk assessment between 2011 and 2014 in two Swedish police districts. The perpetrators were categorized as antisocial (n = 327) or family-only (n = 301) based on general criminality. Recidivism was measured as any new police report of an IPV related crime. Results demonstrated that antisocial perpetrators recidivated to a larger extent than family-only perpetrators (27.2% vs. 12.9%). Antisocial perpetrators were more prone to recidivate in both physical and non-physical violence. Furthermore, antisocial perpetrators had a longer critical time period for recidivism and recidivated faster in non-physically violent IPV compared to family-only perpetrators. These findings highlight the need to consider different risk management strategies depending on the type of IPV perpetrator in order to prevent future violence.
