Psychology Aggression is verbal or physical behavior
1. Aggression is verbal or physical behavior intended to cause harm. Thought
we may not like to admit it, we all participate in aggressive behavior at some
level and at some time in our lives. Do evolutionary factors play a large role in
aggression? What was Freud’s theory about violence? What does more recent
research say about a likely evolutionary role for violence? What does
Hawley’s research say about this?
2. What internal mechanisms (forms of self-regulation) are available to control
aggression? Why does self-regulation sometimes fail? What does current
research suggest in this regard?
