AbstractThis article is the progress of the first phase of research that seeks to identify the male position against domestic violence developed by the Fundación Universitaria Católica del Norte. The results are documentary reports. During the second phase we will do fieldwork with the male perpetrators that are being attended in public institutions related to domestic violence research. The article discusses 2 aspects: the first refers to the masculine identity and the second involves the Latino men’s perspective on violence. While analyzing the primary sources, it is evident that male population has been conceived as a figure of ostentatious power; responsible for making family decisions. Similarly, research conducted with Latino male aggressors, there are some phenomena associated with violence shown in the first review of documents. In short, male Identity is a psychosocial construction that reflects itself on the linkage to familial ties.
