Intimate Partner Violence and the Capacity and Desire for Self-Control
by Brewer, Krista Taralynne, M.A., University of South Florida, 2017, 59; 10640577
Abstract (Summary)

The effect of self-control on one’s criminal offending is a product of both an individual’s capacity to exercise self-control as well as their desire to exercise self-control. The present study utilized self-report data gathered at a large urban university in Florida (n = 1,307) to test the independent and interactive effects of control-capacity and control-desire on intimate partner violence perpetration. The study suggests that while both capacity and desire for control have effects on one’s likelihood of reporting IPV, these effects are independent of each other.
