The purpose of this research was to determine the influence of intrafamily violence and aggression on emotional self-regulation in adolescents born to parents deprived of liberty. The methodology constituted a study with a quantitative approach, of a basic or pure type, of a non-experimental, cross-sectional, explanatory design, using a structural equations model. The sample consisted of 300 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 18, children of fathers or mothers who are deprived of their liberty, who regularly attend visits at a National Penitentiary Institute. Instruments analyzed through their validity and reliability were applied, these were the Family Violence Questionnaire, Aggression Questionnaire (QA) by Buss and Perry and the Emotional Self-Regulation Questionnaire (ERQ) by Gross and Thomson. The results showed, through the statistical model, an adjusted R2 coefficient= .196 and indicates that 19.6% of the variability in emotional self-regulation is due to the influence of aggression and family violence, and even corroborates that for each unit that increases the aggression, social skills decrease on average 0.15 keeping family violence constant, likewise for each unit that intrafamily violence increases, emotional self-regulation decreases on average .19 keeping aggression constant. It is concluded that intrafamily violence and aggression influence emotional self-regulation in adolescents born to parents deprived of liberty.
