How Mad and Violent Are Girls?: Anger and Aggression in Female Juvenile Offenders

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



Abstract:

Although rates of female juvenile offending have increased over the past two decades, little research has focused on this population. Extant research has found significant relationships between anger, aggression, and juvenile delinquency, but most of this research has focused exclusively on males and physical aggression. Female juvenile offenders, however, are a unique group that perpetrates frequent acts of both physical and relational aggression. Thus, this study examined data from delinquent girls in residential juvenile justice facilities and found significant relationships among anger, physical aggression, and relational aggression. Implications for treatment will be discussed.
