Factors Associated With Interpersonal Aggression

Brian Lawton, Temple University

This research examines the factors associated with interpersonal aggression across two generations of a family. Factors of interest include family attachment, peer influence and neighborhood context among others. The data, collected by the Johns Hopkins Collaborative Perinatal Study (JHCPS) in Galtimore, Maryland, provides the opportunity to examine the impact of both macro-social effects and micro-social effects on individuals within the study, and whether there is evidence of stability of aggression over time.
