  • On alcohol disinhibition and inhibition: The intricate relationship
           between oxidative stress and behavior
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Tobore Onojighofia ToboreAbstractAlcohol use is known to result in disinhibition. However, evidence suggests that alcohol consumption could also result in inhibition. Several hypotheses have been proposed for this confounding alcohol-induced behavior, but none explains it adequately at the level of the brain. In this paper, oxidative stress is put forth as the underlying cause of alcohol toxicity and behavioral impairments. The implications of this understanding and how oxidative stress influences behavior in obesity, diabetes, psychiatric and neurodegenerative diseases and during hot weather are discussed.
       
  • The object is the message: sports, violence, and throwing objects onto
           fields
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 January 2020Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Ilan TamirAbstractViolence in sports in general is well documented in the research literature, including violence among specific audiences, and its manifestations cover diverse categories of dysfunctional behaviors worldwide. The current research offers a focused examination of the practice of throwing objects onto playing fields, with the aim of gaining in-depth understanding of the motives of the object throwers, and as a by-product, to identify and categorize the types of objects thrown, and the circumstances and contexts in which they are thrown.Analysis of in-depth interviews with fans who reported throwing objects onto sports fields indicates that throwing objects onto the field constitutes a practice that is used to reinforce a team's boundaries and its stress its differentiation from other teams. Fans consider this practice as a sacrifice they perform for the team, and the objects that are thrown are not randomly selected, in that they express a message that the fans wish to convey.Findings of the current study indicate that the practice throwing objects onto sports fields is driven by three main motives, each of which is associated with the use of distinct objects that are thrown onto the field. Throwing objects onto fields functions as a practice of protest (against the team players or the referee, reflecting frustration), as a practice of ownership (primarily against the rival team, in an effort to influence the game), and as a practice of superiority (again, primarily with the aim of humiliating the rival team).
       
  • Improving the assessment of risk for imminent aggression in older adults
           in residential facilities
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 8 January 2020Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Terri Roberton, Michael DaffernAbstractAggressive behavior by older adults living in residential facilities occurs commonly, and negatively impacts caregivers, other residents, and sometimes visitors. A precondition of aggression prevention efforts is accurate identification of high-risk individuals and interactions. To this end, elucidation of early warning signs and specification of proximal causes, processes and high-risk interactions is critical. Structured risk assessment instruments have been shown to improve prediction of imminent aggression in inpatient mental health care settings, and these instruments have been applied to various other populations and settings; however, there is little evidence regarding their validity in older adult populations. This paper reviews literature that has sought to identify the proximal causes and processes associated with aggressive behavior in older adults; this includes premorbid personality, cognitive impairment, language impairment, social functioning, mental health, functional dependency, sensory impairments, and pain. Given that the proximate causes and processes leading to aggression in older adults seem to differ in subtle ways from acute mental health inpatients, further examination (and possible modification) of existing risk assessment instruments for use in older adults is warranted. This paper identifies six factors that may improve utility and predictive validity when applying extant risk assessment instruments with older adults in residential facilities: confusion/disorientation, resistiveness to care, social disengagement, fear, symptoms of depression, and uncontrolled pain or discomfort.
       
  • High self-control may support ‘success’ in psychopathic leadership:
           Self-control versus impulsivity in psychopathic leadership
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2020Source: Aggression and Violent Behavior, Volume 50Author(s): Désiré G.C. Palmen, Jan J.L. Derksen, Emile KolthoffAbstractIn the last few years scholars have postulated that non-institutionalized psychopathic individuals may be overrepresented in leadership positions. In this paper we juxtapose theory and research on the profile of those high in psychopathy in leadership positions with the traditional profile of those high in psychopathy in prisons and institutions. We hypothesize that the psychopathic leader has a unique combination of traits that enables and drives such a leader to be ‘successful’ in a position of power. We propose that the differentiating trait in the profile of the psychopathic leader may be the trait high self-control. This is in contrast with the traditional profile of institutionalized psychopathic individuals in which levels of self-control are typically low. Furthermore, we hypothesize that although the traits of high self-control and impulsivity are apparently contradictory, the conjunction of high self-control with one specific domain of impulsivity could further amplify the ‘success’ of the psychopathic leader.
       
  • The motivations of female child sexual offenders: A systematic review of
           the literature
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2020Source: Aggression and Violent Behavior, Volume 50Author(s): Kelly M. Brown, Juliane A. KloessAbstractThe aim of the literature review presented here was to identify goals and offense-supportive cognitions that act as motivational factors in the sexual offending against children committed by females. A scoping search revealed that there was currently no review in this area. A systematic search of empirical research that examined motivations in female child sexual offenders (FCSOs) was initiated based upon an inclusion and exclusion criteria. Identified studies were screened and reference lists were hand searched. A quality assessment tool reviewed the strengths and weaknesses of the final 13 articles. A data extraction form established for the current review enabled the extraction of standardized information. The review identified support for many motivational factors in FCSOs, which have previously been referred to in the literature. The review has categorized these into motivations and offense-supportive cognitions. There was strong support for the following motivations and goals: offending under coercion of an abusive co-offender, offending to meet one's own needs and offending to feel power and control over another. The strongest offense-supportive cognitions were entitlement and uncontrollability. There was an apparent overlap between the two categories, with some offense-supportive cognitions and functions amalgamating to facilitate females to engage in offending behavior.

           perpetration
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2020Source: Aggression and Violent Behavior, Volume 50Author(s): Sen Li, Fengqing Zhao, Guoliang YuAbstractIntimate partner violence (IPV) perpetration is a serious public health concern. It is necessary to understand and identify the antecedents of IPV perpetration. This article aimed to report a meta-analysis of the relationship between childhood maltreatment (CM) and IPV perpetration, and explore the moderating effects of gender and marital status. Examination of the literature containing quantitative measurements of both CM and IPV perpetration produced a sample of 87 effect sizes (N = 32,544) for review. Results based on random-effects model indicated a significant positive relationship between total CM and IPV perpetration (r = 0.16, p 
       
  • Intimate partner homicide: A meta-analysis of risk factors
    • Abstract: Publication date: January–February 2020Source: Aggression and Violent Behavior, Volume 50Author(s): Andreia Matias, Mariana Gonçalves, Cristina Soeiro, Marlene MatosAbstractHomicide in intimate relationships is one of the most prevalent causes of death for women worldwide. This meta-analysis aims to identify and integrate, through analytical and statistical methodologies, the risk factors associated with intimate partner homicide. The research was performed in different databases and led to the inclusion of 28 empirical articles in this meta-analysis. Only quantitative papers with a comparison group (non-fatal perpetrators, other homicides, intimate partner homicide followed by suicide) were considered for this meta-analysis. The results showed that the risk factors related to abusive couple dynamics (threatening the victim with a weapon, any kind of threatening, death threats, bottlenecks, stalking and controlling behaviours, abuse during pregnancy and physical violence) are associated with a higher probability of intimate partner homicide. Further studies should provide more clarification of the factors associated with this phenomenon to improve the efficiency of the criminal investigation of intimate partner homicides, making crime repression and the protection of victims more effective.
       
  • Seeing red' A systematic review of the evidence for attentional biases
           to threat-relevant stimuli in propensity to reactive aggression
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 22 November 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Katherine E. ManningAbstractPsychological models of aggression have suggested that propensity to aggressive behaviour, especially reactive aggression (RA), may be associated with attentional biases to threat or hostile stimuli. Findings to date are inconsistent, but have often treated aggression as a general construct. This review aimed to evaluate the evidence for a specific association of such attentional biases in propensity to RA, excluding populations with known attention processing abnormalities. A systematic search of the literature was undertaken and twelve eligible experiments, reported in nine studies, were identified. Data were combined and reviewed using narrative synthesis, assessing the presence of differences in attentional processing of threat-relevant stimuli in RA, and specificity of biases to threat-related stimuli and to RA. Preliminary and tentative evidence is presented suggesting that such biases are shown by individuals who exhibit high reactive aggression, which may be specific to this form of aggression. Most studies reporting positive findings reported an attentional bias towards interpersonal threat stimuli, with some evidence that this does not generalise to other types of emotional stimuli. However, positive findings were not reported by all studies, and the small number of studies and varied tasks prevented more nuanced analysis. The review also highlights sampling biases which affect generalisability of findings, particularly beyond the male population.
       
  • Elucidating the neurobiology of cyberbullying using functional Magnetic
           Resonance Imaging (fMRI): A hypothesis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 21 November 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Larisa T. McLoughlin, Zack Shan, Kathryn M. Broadhouse, Jim Lagopoulos, Natalie Winks, Daniel F. HermensAbstractCyberbullying is a prevalent concern around the world. Research shows that interactions online are associated with similar structural correlates and patterns of brain activity to real-world (offline) relationships, and that the brain experiences peer victimisation (e.g., cyberbullying) in the same way that it experiences physical pain. Furthermore, these experiences can become biologically embedded in the physiology of the developing person, thereby increasing their risk of developing mental health problems. With the increasing prevalence of cyberbullying and youth internet usage, there is a pressing need to further understand the brain's response to cyberbullying.We hypothesise that a unique pattern of brain activation is associated with cyberbullying and can be identified using task-based functional magnetic resonance imaging (tbfMRI). However, there is a dearth of research regarding cyberbullying and no fMRI paradigm exists in a real-time situation such as observing a cyberbullying scenario. Here, we propose a tbfMRI protocol we have developed specifically for this purpose.This paper will describe a tbfMRI protocol that can be used to investigate the hypothesis. The overall aim of such a protocol is to elucidate the neurobiological underpinnings of cyberbullying by exploring the brain responses in passive cyber-bystanders (those who witness cyberbullying). This would be the first research to use fMRI to examine brain activation in cyberbystanders, and will bring us closer to understanding the various neurobiological underpinnings that may be associated with cyber-victim/bully status and outcomes.
       
  • The association between psychopathy and delinquency in juveniles: A
           three-level meta-analysis
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 15 November 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Yoni Geerlings, Jessica J. Asscher, Geert-Jan J.M. Stams, Mark AssinkAbstractBackgroundPsychopathy has repeatedly been linked with delinquency and criminal recidivism of adults. With the increase of studies examining psychopathic traits in juveniles, it is important to also study this association in juveniles to increase the effectiveness of preventive interventions for juvenile delinquency.PurposeThe primary aim of the present meta-analysis was to examine the association between psychopathic traits and delinquency in juveniles. The second aim was to examine which factors (i.e., type of delinquency, type of psychopathic trait, and other study- and participant characteristics) moderate the association between psychopathy and juvenile delinquent behavior.MethodThe data were analyzed in three-level meta-analytic models.ResultsIn total, 87 studies were included, which used 74 independent samples and reported on 358 effect sizes. Psychopathy was moderately and positively associated with juvenile delinquency (r = 0.24, p 
       
  • Life course persistent antisocial behavior silver anniversary
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 November 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Robert EmeAbstractIn 1993 Terrie Moffitt published a paper that proposed a dual developmental taxonomy of antisocial behavior. The paper triggered a cascade of research on types of criminal offending, thereby making it one of the most researched and most influential of all developmental theories of antisocial behavior. The silver anniversary of the paper's publication seems a fitting time to review the status of the life-course-persistent (LCP) group who Moffitt suggested would enable researchers to learn more about the etiology of severe, persistent antisocial behavior from studying this group than from studying the group that had its onset of antisocial behavior in adolescence. The LCP group was hypothesized to consist of a relatively few males whose early-onset of severe antisocial behavior would persist into adulthood and had its origins in neurodevelopmental deficits interacting with various environmental risk factors. This review assessed the evidence supporting these hypotheses and reviewed the findings for early identification of the LCP group—a topic that was only modestly addressed in 1993. Lastly, the paper discussed what is one of most significant impacts of the 1993 article, providing impetus to the early-years crime prevention movement.
       
  • Cyberbullying: Concepts, theories, and correlates informing evidence-based
           best practices for prevention
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 1 November 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Nadia S. AnsaryAbstractEmerging evidence has revealed that many characteristics of cyberbullying—its definition, prevalence rates, risk and protective factors, outcomes, and prevention strategies—are related and yet somewhat unique from traditional bullying. The ubiquity of technology in the lives of youth presents an opportunity for individuals to intentionally and repetitively harm others, 24 h per day, sometimes with complete anonymity, and often without consequence. This is concerning given the high rates of psychopathology associated with cybervictimization, over and above, traditional bullying. Given the current state of the field, this literature review provides a critical synthesis of the extant knowledge concerning (1) a definition of cyberbullying; (2) theories explaining cyberbullying; (3) prevalence rates; (4) a brief developmentally-focused overview of adolescents and their online use; (5) risk and protective factors; (6) negative psycho-social outcomes, over and above traditional bullying; and (7) a brief overview of prevention and intervention programming with information for key stakeholders. Implications and future directions are discussed.
       
  • Omega-3 fatty acids in cause, prevention and management of violence in
           schizophrenia: Conceptualization and application
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 31 October 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Wen-Chen Ouyang, Gwo-Ching Sun, Mei-Chi HsuAbstractSchizophrenia is a disabling neurological disorder. Patients with this disease are at higher risk to violence. This paper reviewed the recent literatures with respect to the heterogeneous nature of the abnormalities and pathophysiological and biological risk markers that link to violent behavior in patients with schizophrenia with a particular interest in lipid metabolism. We have focused on altered lipid profile including polyunsaturated fatty acids, which may have attributed to the development of aggressive behavior in patients with schizophrenia. We addressed questions on how aberrant lipid metabolism affects brain structure and function, and how lipids modulate neurotransmission activity during progression of this devastating disease. Many clinical studies have demonstrated that omega-3 fatty acids may reduce transition rate to psychosis and serve as additive to reduce the violence. We postulate that the beneficial effect of omega-3 fatty acid supplementation on violence may act through modulating neuronal membrane lipid structure and neurotransmission. A better understanding of the underlying mechanisms how these pathways modulate aggression may facilitate development of strategies to prevent, ameliorate or reduce the manifestation of violence.
       
  • Why we cannot explain cross-cultural differences in risk assessment
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 October 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Stefanie Schmidt, Roxanne Heffernan, Tony WardAbstractThe prediction and explanation of crime currently relies predominantly upon the concept of dynamic risk factors (DRF). Evidence suggests that DRF vary across cultures with respect to their prevalence and their predictive validity (e.g., Olver, Stockdale, & Wormith, 2014). What remains unclear is whether the observed differences can be explained by real cultural differences in the causes of crime; and if this is the case, how does culture influence this' We suggest that confusion arises due to conceptual problems with DRF and their measurement. Because DRF are vague, composite, and value-laden constructs researchers are unable to minimize or control for the occurrence of construct or item bias when scores on risk measures are compared across cultures. This makes any further interpretation and adjustment to assessment or intervention unwarranted. If we do not know whether or how DRF cause violence within the cultural context of their development, we cannot possibly hope to explain this relationship in another culture. We suggest that there is a pressing need to provide coherent theories for research, risk assessment and treatment in the future. We will discuss possible ways forward in this paper.
       
  • Improving approaches in psychotherapy and domestic violence interventions
           for perpetrators from marginalized ethnic groups
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 24 October 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Zeynep TurhanAbstractThe major goal of this paper is to review the existing therapeutic approaches in domestic violence perpetrator interventions by illustrating their effectiveness in reducing and ending the violent behaviour of men from marginalized ethnic groups. The paper aims to discuss how services can efficiently respond to historically marginalized ethnic perpetrators' needs and circumstances based on their social and cultural contexts. This article reviews literature about the success of domestic violence intervention approaches among marginalized ethnic group perpetrators. While each intervention approach highlights key practices for revealing violent behaviour, the combination of integrative approaches and culturally-sensitive strategies appear to be more effective for perpetrators from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. This article contributes to debates about culturally-sensitive approaches by discussing the importance of professionals' skills for enhancing marginalized ethnic perpetrators' motivations to remain engaged in the intervention process. It recommends a number of key culturally-specific strategies for this purpose.
       
  • Racial and ethnic differences in bullying: Review and implications for
           intervention
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 18 October 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Mariah Xu, Natalia Macrynikola, Muhammad Waseem, Regina MirandaAbstractDespite increased research on bullying over the past few decades, researchers still have little understanding of how bullying differentially affects racial and ethnic minority and immigrant youth. To facilitate efforts to better evaluate the impact of bullying among racial and ethnic minority youth and improve interventions, we integrated research from multiple disciplines and conducted a systematic search to review relevant cross-cultural research on the prevalence of bullying, risk and protective factors, and differences in behaviors and outcomes associated with bullying in these populations. Studies measuring differences in bullying prevalence by racial and ethnic groups are inconclusive, and discrepancies in findings may be explained by differences in how bullying is measured and the impact of school and social environments. Racial and ethnic minorities and immigrants are disproportionately affected by contextual-level risk factors associated with bullying (e.g., adverse community, home, and school environments), which may moderate the effects of individual-level predictors of bullying victimization or perpetration (e.g., depressive symptoms, empathy, hostility, etc.) on involvement and outcomes. Minority youth may be more likely to perpetrate bullying, and are at much higher risk for poor health and behavioral outcomes as a result of bias-based bullying. At the same time, racial and ethnic minorities and immigrants may be protected against bullying involvement and its negative consequences as a result of strong ethnic identity, positive cultural and family values, and other resilience factors. Considering these findings, we evaluate existing bullying interventions and prevention programs and propose directions for future research.
       
  • Risk factors for elder abuse and neglect: A review of the literature
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 12 September 2019Source: Aggression and Violent BehaviorAuthor(s): Jennifer E. StoreyAbstractElder abuse is a global problem gaining recognition due to its severe impact on victims and the ageing population. Increased recognition has led to the investigation of perpetrator and victim characteristics that increase the risk of elder abuse. The identification of such risk factors can assist practitioners in preventing abuse, determining the risk of continued elder abuse and, where factors are dynamic, can be targets for risk management. This literature review identifies and describes perpetrator and victim risk factors for elder abuse with the goal of informing professional practice and providing the basis for an empirically derived risk assessment instrument for elder abuse. Electronic searches identified 198 studies that met the eligibility criteria. The studies reviewed provide evidence supporting eight risk factors related to the perpetrator that increase their risk of continued elder abuse and eight victim vulnerability factors that place the victim at heightened risk of elder abuse. Hypotheses raised by researchers to account for the associations are outlined. The practical utility of the risk and vulnerability factors are described. The need for and approach to developing a structured method to assess and manage elder abuse risk based on the empirically supported risk and vulnerability factors is discussed.Public significance statementEmpirically supported dynamic risk factors for elder abuse are identifiable for perpetrators and victims of abuse in the existing research literature. These risk factors can be utilised by professionals to inform their practice and target risk management efforts.
