154 male college students at the University of Northern Iowa completed measures of male peer support for deviant acts, self-control. and conflict tactics (measuring the degree of violence in one's most recent intimate relationship). Preliminary analyses indicate support for both theories. Men who reported having used violence against women also reported having friends with similar attitudes or behaviors. In addition. men who reported acts of low self-control also reported having used violence against women.
