Abstract:

There is a great need to acknowledge various issues impacting mental health among Latinos as the Latino population has been rapidly growing in the United States. This study explored a set of variables that predict husbands' aggressiveness in Latino marriages. The etiology of aggression appears to be rooted in various individual, psychosocial and socio-cultural factors including affective communication styles, gender, income, education, gender roles, and global distress. Based on the available literature it Was hypothesized that variables such as husband's reported distress in affective communication, global distress, and genderrole orientation would predict the husband's tendency towards aggression. It was also hypothesized that other variables related to the wives such as the wives' level of reported global distress, distress about affective communication, and gender role orientation may predict aggressive behavior in husbands. Multiple regression results revealed significant information about the relationship to wives' perception of their husbands' aggression ofthree variables: (1) husbands' report of global distress, (2) husbands' report ofgender-role orientation, and (3) wives report of gender role orientation. Regarding the hypothesis that affective communication is a predictor ofhusbands' aggression in Latino marriages, no significant results were found in this sample. The finding that traditional role orientation predicts masculine aggression in marriages could lend itself to a clinical focus on empowering the women in marital relationships.
