Research work groups

 

Aggression and victimization work group

Description:

The aggression workgroup seeks to understand the causes and consequences of aggressive behavior in youth’s peer groups. Our current projects involve 1) understanding the antecedents and consequences of the different forms (e.g., physical versus social) and functions (e.g., proactive versus reactive) of aggression, 2) considering ways in which subgroups of children are able to use aggression with little or no negative ramifications; and 3) understanding the factors that place children at risk for being victimized by peers as well as the consequences of this victimization. Our group uses diverse methodologies, including meta-analytic synthesis of prior research, latent variable modeling, and advanced longitudinal designs
