Will It Help or Hurt?: The Expected Outcomes of Delinquent Girls’ Physical and Relational Aggression

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



Abstract:

Adolescents’ tendencies to act out in physically aggressive ways have been linked with their expectations about the probable outcomes of their behaviors. If youth believe that such behaviors will result in positive outcomes, they will act aggressively; if they believe the behaviors will result in negative outcomes, they will be less likely to aggress. To date, however, no research has examined adolescents’ expected outcomes of relational aggression. Consequently, this study assessed physical and relational aggression among female juvenile offenders and anticipated outcomes of such behaviors. Results revealed that negative outcome expectations were postively associated with relational aggression in this population, but outcome expectations were unrelated to physical aggression. Implications of these findings, as well as limitations of the study, will be discussed.
