Agression
Aggressive behaviour is any behavior that is intended to cause injury, pain, suffering damage or destruction. While aggressive behavior is often thought of as purely physical, verbal attacks such as screaming and shouting or belittling and humiliating comments aimed at causing harm and suffering can also be a type of aggression. What is key to the definition of aggression is that whenever harm is inflicted, be it physical or verbal, it is intentional.
Questions about the causes of aggression have long been of concern of both social and biological scientists. Theories about the causes of aggression cover a broad spectrum, ranging from those with biological or instinctive emphases to those that portray aggression as a learned behaviour
Numerous theories are based on the idea that aggression is an inherent and natural human instinct.
Aggression has been explained as an instinct that is directed externally toward others in a process called displacement, and it has been noted that aggressive impulses that are not channeled toward a specific person or group may be expressed indirectly through social acceptable activities such as sports and competition in a process called catharsis. Biological or instinctive theories of aggression have also been put forth by ethnologists, who study the behavior of animal in their natural environment. A number of ethnologists have, based upon their observation of animals, supported the view that aggression is an innate instinct common to humans.
Two different schools of thought exist among those who view aggression as instinct. One group holds the view that aggression can build up spontaneously, with or without outside provocation, and violent behavior will thus result, perhaps as a result of little or no provocation. Another suggests that aggression is indeed an instinctive response but that, rather than occurring spontaneously and without provocation, it’s a direct response to provocation from an outside source.
In contrast to instinct theories, social learning theories view aggression as a learned behaviour. This approach focuses on the effect that role models and reinforcement of behavior have on the acquisition of aggressive behaviour. Research has shown that aggressive behaviour can be learned through a combination of modeler; and positive reinforcement of aggressive behavior and that children are influenced by the combined forces of observing aggressive behavior in parents, peers, or fictional role model and of noting either positive reinforcement for the aggressive behaviour or, minimally, a lad of negative reinforcement for the behaviour. While research has provided evidence that the behavior of a live modal is more influential than that of a fictional model. ﬁctional models of aggressive behavior such as those seen in movies and television, do still have an impact on behaviour
Studies have shown correlation between viewing of violence and incidences of aggressive behavior in both childhood and adolescence. Studies have also shown that it is not just the modeling of aggressive behevior in either its real-Iife or fictional form that correlates with increasing acts of violence in youths; a critical factor in increasing aggressive behaviours is the reinforcement of the behavior. If the aggressive role model is rewarded rather than punished for violent behavior, that behavior more likely to be seen as positive and is thus more Iikely to be imitated
