Abstract
The identification of antisocial behaviors that precede the antisocial disorders and protective factors associated with them, has become a priority in the context of violence currently being experienced in Mexico for the contribution to establishing prevention mechanisms. This study seeks to identify the relationship between socio-emotional skills and socio-demographic variables with antisocial behavior in adolescents. We applied the Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i) and antisocial behaviors scale (ECODI-27) to a sample of 471 adolescents residing in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, Mexico. The results confirmed the hypothesis that lower emotional competences (specifically, stress management and interpersonal skills) predict the presence of antisocial behavior.
