Cyclicity of Aggression and Self-Injurious Behavior in Individuals with Mental Retardation.
Lewis, Mark H.; And Others
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v99 n4 p436-44 Jan 1995
This study of 12 residents of a treatment facility for individuals with mental retardation examined cycles in occurrences of self-injurious behavior (SIB) and aggression both within and across individuals. The study confirmed that such behavior tended to be rhythmical, with cycles of three-month and five-month periods consistently observed for both aggression and SIB. (DB)
