Abstract

Since 1996 there have been 17 reported cases of violence in U.S. schools by children ranging in age from 11 to 18. These cases have prompted an increase in research on risk factors and correlates of aggression. A review of this new literature would serve to highlight common findings and explain discrepancies. In this literature review I will discuss family, peer, and community influences as factors in the development of aggression in children. Within each context are several influencing factors that contribute to the development of aggression. I will also discuss possible implications, interventions, and future research needs as well as limitations of this review.
