Psychosocial maturity and aggression in adolescents and young adults

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study tested the relationship between psychosocial maturity (PM) and aggression, including four types of aggression. Specific components of PM (temperance, interpersonal skills) were hypothesized to predict types of aggression (reactive, instrumental) based on prior research. Participants were 183 high school and university students. The study confirmed a relationship between PM and aggression, which extended to all four types of aggression. The expected relationship between temperance and reactive aggression was confirmed, but not for interpersonal skills and instrumental aggression. These findings further emphasize the need for research on psychosocial immaturity and the role it might play in various negative outcomes.
