Aggression and School Social Dynamics: The Good, the Bad, and the Ordinary
Farmer, Thomas W.; Xie, Hongling
Journal of School Psychology, v45 n5 p461-478 Oct 2007
A social dynamics perspective of aggression in school is presented. This framework focuses on the role of natural social processes in the establishment and maintenance of aggressive behavior in the school context. The five articles in this special issue are briefly reviewed and a synthesis of their contributions for understanding the social dynamics of aggression in school is underscored. Future research and intervention implications are also discussed. The need for examining the role of school social dynamics in conducting social skills interventions, functional behavioral assessments, and the development of positive behavioral support plans is emphasized.
