Latino men assigned to the intervention will receive, in a small group setting, an 8-session, primary intimate partner violence prevention intervention based on the Duluth model and culturally and linguistically tailored for Spanish speaking Latino men. Measures will be administered at pre-test, and at three and six months post-intervention.
