    ABSTRACT: In the field of batterer intervention and research on improving the effectiveness of these interventions, alcohol abuse has been one of the risk factors that has received special attention. The aim of this work is analyze the relationship between alcohol abuse, process of change due to the intervention, and the dropout rate. The sample consisted of 86 risk male consumers and 80 non risk male consumers, all of them sentenced for violence against women and participating in an intervention program in community environment that does not specifically address the problem of alcohol use. Using multiple repeated measures ANOVAs, the results reveal that there is a higher percentage of dropouts from the intervention among risk consumers. However, regardless of alcohol use, participating in the intervention program was associated with positive changes in relation to risk of recidivism and other success indicators analyzed – attributions and attitudes toward violence, psychological adjustment, and social support. Finally, the results and their practical implications are discussed.

    ABSTRACT: The study aims were to identify which dimensions of the sense of community have the greatest positive impact on residential quality of life and which of these best predict the quality of life of residents according to the socioeconomic status of the neighbourhood. The study was conducted in 10 districts in Malaga City, Spain, with a total sample of 1,583 participants. Of these residents, 31% had a low socioeconomic status, 34% had a medium socioeconomic status, and 35% had a high socioeconomic status. The participants were selected using random route sampling. The results show that the 3 dimensions that best predicted residential quality of life were the physical environment of the neighbourhood, administrative incentives, and social support from local authorities. The results also show that the dimensions of the sense of community that predicted residential quality of life changed according to the socioeconomic status of the neighbourhood. The implications of the study are discussed.
