Social-Cognitive Influences on Change in Aggression Over Time.
Egan, Susan K.; Monson, Thomas C.; Perry, David G.
Developmental Psychology, v34 n5 p996-1006 Sep 1998
Examined whether social cognitions forecast change in aggressive habits over the school year for 189 third through seventh graders. Found that aggression-encouraging cognitions assessed in the fall promoted aggression over the school years, but that such developments hinged on the child's sex and on initial levels of aggression and victimization.
