Maltrato y delincuencia

Susana G. Paíno Quesada, Francisco Revuelta

Universidad de Huelva

El objetivo de este trabajo es conocer, por una parte, la relación de determinadas variables familiares con la manifestación de la conducta de malos tratos; y, por otra parte, la relación entre la existencia de maltrato en la infancia y la posterior conducta delictiva en una muestra de presos del Establecimiento Penitenciario de Villabona (Asturias). Se analizaron variables familiares, escolares, laborales y de salud, historia penitenciaria e historia de drogodependencia; todas ellas recogidas en una historia de vida que se aplicó a una muestra de 87 personas. El tratamiento estadístico de los datos se llevó a cabo mediante el paquete informático SPSS. Los resultados obtenidos parecen indicar, en primer lugar, los antecedentes de adicción del padre (fundamentalmente adicción al alcohol) es una de las variables analizadas que mayor significación muestra ante la variable criterio de maltrato familiar; en segundo lugar, también los antecedentes penales del padre tienen incidencia en la existencia de malos tratos en el ámbito familiar y, finalmente, respecto a la relación entre los antecedentes de la madre, tanto de adicción como penales, con la variable criterio no es significativa. Por otra parte, la relación entre la existencia de maltrato y variables relativas a la historia penitenciaria (edad de ingreso en prisión, reincidencia...) también ha resultado significativa.

Maltreatment and delinquency.The objective of this work is to know, on the one hand, the relation of determined familiar variables with the manifestation of the conduct of bad treatments; and, on the other hand, the relation between the existence of maltreatment in the childhood and the later criminal conduct in a sample of prisoners of the Penitentiary Establishment of Villabona (Asturias). Familiar, school, labour variables and of health, penitentiary history and history of drug addiction were analysed; all collected in a life history that was applied to a sample of 87 people. The processing of the data was carried out by means of statistical package SPSS. The results indicate several questions. In the first place, the variable antecedent of addiction of the father (fundamentally alcohol addiction) is one of the analysed variables more significant before the variable criterion of familiar mistreat. Secondly, also the criminal records of the father have incidence in the existence of bad treatments in the familiar scope. Finally, the antecedents of addiction or penitentiaries of the mother with respect to the criterion variable is not significant. On the other hand, the relation between the existence of mistreat and familiar variables to penitentiary history (age to enter in prison, recidivism...)also have been significant.
