The cycle of violence as a function of PTSD and appetitive aggression: A longitudinal study with Burundian soldiers.

Aggress Behav 2020 May 3. Epub 2020 May 3.

Dr. Amelung Private Clinic for Psychiatry, Psychotherapy, and Psychosomatics, Königstein im Taunus, Germany.

During deployment, soldiers face situations in which they are not only exposed to violence but also have to perpetrate it themselves. This study investigates the role of soldiers' levels of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) symptoms and appetitive aggression, that is, a lust for violence, for their engaging in violence during deployment. Furthermore, factors during deployment influencing the level of PTSD symptoms and appetitive aggression after deployment were examined for a better comprehension of the maintenance of violence.

Judgments of marital rape as a function of honor culture, masculine reputation threat, and observer gender: A cross-cultural comparison between Turkey, Germany, and the UK.

Aggress Behav 2020 Apr 29. Epub 2020 Apr 29.

Department of Education and Psychology, Free University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany.

Previous research has shown that there is higher tolerance of violence against women in cultures with salient gender-specific honor norms, especially when the violence occurs in intimate relationships and in response to threat to male honor. The present cross-cultural study (N = 398) extended these findings to sexual aggression (i.e. Read More

What stops revenge taking? Effects of observed emotional reactions on revenge seeking.

Aggress Behav 2020 Mar 30. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Department of Psychology, Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich, Munich, Germany.

What reaction stops revenge taking? Four experiments (total N = 191) examined this question where the victim of an interpersonal transgression could observe the offender's reaction (anger, sadness, pain, or calm) to a retributive noise punishment. We compared the punishment intensity selected by the participant before and after seeing the offender's reaction. Seeing the opponent in pain reduced subsequent punishment most strongly, while displays of sadness and verbal indications of suffering had no appeasing effect. Read More

Bidirectional associations between affective empathy and proactive and reactive aggression.

Aggress Behav 2020 Mar 30. Epub 2020 Mar 30.

Developmental Psychobiology Research Group, University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, Aurora, Colorado.

Preliminary evidence indicates that affective empathy is differentially related to proactive and reactive functions of aggression. However, additional longitudinal research is needed to understand the potential reciprocal nature of these links. The current study examined the bidirectional associations between affective empathy and proactive and reactive aggression over a 6-month period during middle childhood, with attention to potential gender differences.

Department of Psychology and Centre for Psychosocial Health, The Education University of Hong Kong, Tai Po, Hong Kong.

Two experiments were conducted to investigate whether sexual objectification increases retaliatory aggression serially through increased vulnerability and hostile intent attributions. Female participants were first exposed to the sexual objectification manipulation by receiving compliments from an online male partner (Experiment 1) or imagining a workplace objectification experience (Experiment 2). Afterward, their vulnerability and hostile intent attributions were assessed. Read More

Facet-level analysis of the relations between personality and laboratory aggression.

Aggress Behav 2020 May 9;46(3):266-277. Epub 2020 Mar 9.

Department of Psychology, University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia.

Multiple reviews and meta-analyses have identified the low pole of the Five-Factor Model (FFM) Agreeableness (also called Antagonism) as the primary domain-level personality correlates of aggression across self-report and behavioral methodologies. In the current study, we expand on this literature by investigating the relations between FFM facets and aggressive behavior as measured by laboratory competitive reaction time tasks (CRTTs). Across three samples (total N = 639), we conducted weighted mean analyses, multiple regression analyses, and dominance analyses to determine which FFM facets were the strongest predictors of aggression within and across domains.

Department of Psychology, Washington State University, Pullman, Washington.

Narcissism and callous-unemotional (CU) traits have demonstrated relations with youth aggression across studies. However, different forms of narcissism and internalizing problems may exacerbate the relation between CU traits and aggression. To that end, the current study examined the degree to which interactions among internalizing problems, CU traits, and dimensions of narcissism related to aggression in a sample of 219 adolescents (83.

Dyadic nominations of bullying: Comparing types of bullies and their victims.

Aggress Behav 2020 May 3;46(3):232-243. Epub 2020 Mar 3.

Behavioural Science Institute, Radboud University, Nijmegen, The Netherlands.

Previous studies indicate that when identifying individuals involved in bullying, the concordance between self- and peer- reports is low to moderate. There is support that self- and peer- identified victims constitute distinct types of victims and differ in adjustment. Likewise, differentiating between self- and peer- reports of bullying may also reveal distinct types of bullies. Read More

University at Buffalo, The State University of New York, Buffalo, New York.

The present study sought to examine the influence of aggressive behavior, psychopathy, and gender on moral judgments of aggressive transgressions. A two-dimensional conceptualization of aggression was used, such that proactive relational aggression, reactive relational aggression, proactive physical aggression, and reactive physical aggression were treated as distinct subtypes of aggression and also as distinct subtypes of moral judgments of aggression. Participants were 421 emerging adults (215 women). Read More

School of Social Work, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan.

A robust research literature links parental spanking with negative behavioral outcomes for children, however, it remains unclear whether conditions in the community may moderate the associations between spanking and behavior problems in early childhood. In the current study, we examined whether community violence exposure moderated the associations of maternal spanking with externalizing and internalizing behavior problems of young children. The sample used in this study was urban families and their children ages 3-5 (n = 2,472). Read More

Departamento de Biociencias, Facultad de Veterinaria, Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay.

Two trials were carried out to determine: (a) if there is a positive relation between the frequency of aggressive interactions among female pampas deer and their position within the hierarchy (HI), (b) if short-term removal of the male triggers an increase in the frequency of aggression, and (c) if the magnitude of this increase is related to the individual rank position of the female. Each of 19 breeding groups comprised one adult male and from four to six adult females. The HI was determined for each female and all aggressive interactions were recorded. Read More

Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, Illinois.

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is characterized by rapidly shifting symptoms, including intense anger and aggressive behavior. Understanding how fluctuations in ovarian hormones across the menstrual cycle may contribute to symptom instability is key for accurate assessment of BPD symptoms and effective interventions. Reactive and proactive aggression, as well as anger-in and anger-out, were assessed daily in 15 physically healthy, unmedicated naturally cycling female individuals meeting criteria for BPD across 35 days.

Department of Psychology, Brock University, St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada.

Among adult and adolescent populations, the personality trait of honesty-humility (HH) has been linked to aggression. For example, adults low in HH have been found to exhibit higher levels of workplace delinquency and revenge motivation, and adolescent low in HH are more likely to bully others. However, there is a paucity of research examining this relationship in children and youth, and how these relationships develop over time. Read More

Aggress Behav 2020 Jan 23;46(1):84-96. Epub 2019 Oct 23.

Department of Psychology, DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois.

Previous research has shown that adolescents' insecurity about their social status is related to their use of relational aggression. However, little is known about how adolescents' social cognition may moderate this association. Employing a mixed-method approach and a short-term longitudinal design, this study addresses this issue by examining the moderation effects of attribution and outcome expectancies regarding relational aggression on the associations between social status insecurity and relational aggression among 476 Chinese adolescents (238 girls).

Adolescent boys' physical fighting and adult life outcomes: Examining the interplay with intelligence.

Aggress Behav 2020 Jan 21;46(1):72-83. Epub 2019 Oct 21.

NOVA-Norwegian Social Research, OsloMet-Oslo Metropolitan University, Oslo, Norway.

Although it is well known that adolescent delinquent behavior is related to poor outcomes in adulthood, longitudinal research on specific acts of delinquency and their interplay with important individual characteristics in predicting future outcomes is scarce. We aimed to examine how physical fighting-one of the most common acts of violent delinquency among adolescent boys-is related to adult life success in several domains, and how intelligence influences these associations. The study used data from 1,083 boys that participated in the population-based longitudinal Young in Norway Study, following adolescents from 1992 to 2015, by combining self-reports at four time points with comprehensive information from registers.

Department of Educational Sciences, University of Genoa, Italy.

Recent years have witnessed an increase of research on socio-affective factors that can explain individual differences in aggressive tendencies across community and offender populations. Specifically, mindfulness and emotion regulation have emerged as important factors, which could also constitute important prevention and treatment targets. Yet, recent studies have advanced the possibility that mindfulness may also have a "dark" side, being associated with increased levels of aggression-related variables, especially when accounting for the variance associated with emotion regulation.

Cyberbullying, cyber aggression, and cyber victimization in relation to adolescents' dating and sexual behavior: An evolutionary perspective.

This study examined adolescents' cyberbullying, cyber aggression, and cyber victimization from an evolutionary perspective, extending previous research showing that traditional forms of bullying, aggression, and victimization are associated with reproductively relevant outcomes. Consistent with hypotheses based on theory and research linking bullying and aggression to intrasexual competition for mates, results indicated that cyber victimization was positively associated with a number of dating and sexual partners. Findings for cyber aggression were more complex, depending on the degree of cyber victimization experienced by the perpetrator, and the balance of power between the perpetrator and victim. Read More

Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.

Although researchers have developed prevention programs to reduce bullying, the results are mixed, and this may be due to a degree of uncertainty in their theoretical foundation. In particular, these programs share an emphasis on empathy as a personal attribute that can be enhanced among students through the application of specific curricula that will, in turn, contribute to a reduction in bullying behavior. However, the link between empathy and bullying is unclear, as is the ability of bullying prevention programs to actually impact student empathy. Read More

Association between substance use disorders and self- and other-directed aggression: An integrated model approach.

Aggress Behav 2019 11 16;45(6):652-661. Epub 2019 Aug 16.

Department of Psychiatry, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Our study's objective is to determine whether substance use disorders' association with aggression differs according to the type of substance and/or the form of aggression, within the same population. We used data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health across 2008-2014, with a pooled sample of 270,227 adult respondents. We used regression models to estimate the odds ratios for those having alcohol and/or drug use disorder(s) perpetrating (a) each form of aggression compared with no aggression and (b) other-directed compared with self-directed aggression.

The contagious impact of playing violent video games on aggression: Longitudinal evidence.

Aggress Behav 2019 11 13;45(6):635-642. Epub 2019 Aug 13.

Department of Psychology, University of Innsbruck, Innsbruck, Austria.

Meta-analyses have shown that violent video game play increases aggression in the player. The present research suggests that violent video game play also affects individuals with whom the player is connected. A longitudinal study (N = 980) asked participants to report on their amount of violent video game play and level of aggression as well as how they perceive their friends and examined the association between the participant's aggression and their friends' amount of violent video game play.

Social relations and presence of others predict bystander intervention: Evidence from violent incidents captured on CCTV.

Aggress Behav 2019 11 29;45(6):598-609. Epub 2019 Jul 29.

Department of Sociology, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Are individuals willing to intervene in public violence? Half a century of research on the "bystander effect" suggests that the more bystanders present at an emergency, the less likely each of them is to provide help. However, recent meta-analytical evidence questions whether this effect generalizes to violent emergencies. Besides the number of bystanders present, an alternative line of research suggests that pre-existing social relations between bystanders and conflict participants are important for explaining whether bystanders provide help.

Peer victimization in single-grade and multigrade classrooms.

Aggress Behav 2019 09 26;45(5):561-570. Epub 2019 Jun 26.

Department of Sociology and Interuniversity Center for Social Science Theory and Methodology (ICS), University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

Although peer victimization mainly takes place within classrooms, little is known about the impact of the classroom context. To this end, we examined whether single-grade and multigrade classrooms (referring to classrooms with one and two grades in the same room) differ in victim-bully relationships in a sample of elementary school children (646 students; age 8-12 years; 50% boys). The occurrence of victim-bully relationships was similar in single-grade and multigrade classrooms formed for administrative reasons, but lower in multigrade classrooms formed for pedagogical reasons.

Irritability and parenting practices as mediational variables between temperament and affective, anxiety, and oppositional defiant problems.

Aggress Behav 2019 09 11;45(5):550-560. Epub 2019 Jun 11.

Departament de Psicologia Clínica i de la Salut, Unitat d'Epidemiologia i de Diagnòstic en Psicopatologia del Desenvolupament, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Institut de Psicologia, Spain.

Irritability and parenting are potential targets for transdiagnostic studies to identify the common and core dysfunctional characteristics underlying several diagnostic pictures with the goal of addressing these issues in treatment. Our objective was to investigate the different paths from temperament to child psychopathology (affective, anxiety, and oppositional problems) through irritability and parenting using a prospective design from ages 3 to 7. A sample of 614 3-year-old preschoolers was followed at ages 4, 6, and 7. Read More

Lonely hearts and angry minds: Online dating rejection increases male (but not female) hostility.

Aggress Behav 2019 09 11;45(5):571-581. Epub 2019 Jun 11.

Department of Psychology, University of Milano-Bicocca, Milan, Italy.

The present work explores the hostile tendencies elicited by romantic rejection in the increasingly common context of online dating. To empirically investigate this issue, we created an ad hoc online dating platform in which fictitious online dating partners romantically rejected heterosexual male and female participants. Results revealed that male-but not female-participants who were rejected by desired dating partners displayed increased hostility. Read More

Aggression against middle and high school teachers: Duration of victimization and its negative impacts.

Aggress Behav 2019 09 3;45(5):517-526. Epub 2019 Jun 3.

School of Criminal Justice, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan.

Prior research indicates that student aggression against teachers is widespread, and it has negative impacts on victimized teachers' emotional and physical well-being and job performance. However, little is known about the relationship between the recency and duration of victimization and teachers' thoughts about quitting the teaching profession and related job dissatisfaction and disconnectedness to school. Analyses of data from a longitudinal study of 1,236 US teachers fills these gaps. Read More

Taking the fight out of people: Exploring how defeat modulates the automatic aggressive response to facial anger.

Aggress Behav 2019 09 22;45(5):537-549. Epub 2019 May 22.

Department of Psychology, University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming.

Past studies indicate that angry facial expressions automatically activate an aggressive response, seeming to support the view that humans possess an inborn, automatic tendencies to aggress. However, the current authors drew on influential models from evolutionary game theory to suggest that experiences of defeat may modulate this tendency. To examine this, four experiments were conducted to explore how defeat may modulate this aggressive response. Read More
