Prise en charge des hommes auteurs de violences conjugales, sans et avec comorbidités addicto-psychiatriques : une revue de la littérature

Abstract : Background: Intimate partner violence, which has been a worldwide public health problem for several years with dramatical consequences, is increasingly brought to light in our societies. Solutions to face the problem tend to target more specifically women victims but practitioners can be also confronted with male offenders who are part of their patients. Objectives: The aim of our systematic review is to draw an inventory of domestic violence treatment programs addressed to male offenders in heterosexual relationships, including specific management of comorbidities often associated with violence. Methods: We ran searches in Medline via PubMed, PsycINFO, CINAHL, Embase and Central (Cochrane Library). Clinical trials, cohort studies, case-control studies, transversal studies, qualitative studies, written in English, French or Spanish, concerning adult heterosexual male perpetrators of intimate partner violence, undertaken in Western countries and published between January 2009 and May 2020 were eligible for inclusion. Results: Ninety-four articles were included. This study highlights the dominance of feminist psychoeducational approaches and cognitive-behavioural therapies. However, newly developed intervention programs try to focus on specific characteristics of perpetrators as type of violence or psychopathic traits and deal with associated behaviours particularly alcohol misuse. Limitations: Generalization of results can be limited by three main reasons : the small sample sizes in some studies, the over-representation of American studies and the heterogeneity of outcomes. Conclusions: Treatment programs addressed to male perpetrators of intimate partner violence, are moving on a global care including addictive and psychiatric comorbidities to fit with perpetrators’ needs.
