Overview

The Psychology of Group Aggression / Edition 1

People in groups act aggressively as a group, not as a collectionof individuals. The Psychology of Group Aggression's comprehensivejourney starts with group dynamics theory and research by reviewingits relationship to aggression.

Arnold P. Goldstein then provides a unique and valuable insightinto the different types and levels of intensity of anti-socialbehavior, examines its causes and considers its costs. In separatechapters he considers low intensity aggression, includingostracism, hazing, teasing; mid-intensity, e.g. bullying,harassment; and high intensity aggression e.g. mobs and gangs. In afinal section, he considers management and intervention techniques,both those widely employed and emerging methods.

An important work for both a pure and an applied audience, thiswill be a key reference for many, including clinical and forensicpsychologists, psychiatrists, criminal justice workers, socialpsychologists and academics and students in criminology, psychologyand sociology.
