INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH
Yes, I can up with questions about school violence. Examples are the following:
What type of violence is occurring?
What are the consequences for school violence?
What is the school doing to currently prevent violence?
I will use The Ethological Theory. It explains the reasons of the animal aggressive behavior in
the human being. Aggression is meant to be an innate reaction based in biologically adapted
unconscious impulses that have been developed together with the species evolution. The
purpose of the aggression is the individual’s survival and it is related with matters such as
territory, hierarchy and selection. The ethnologists consider that the human being, in the
evolutionary scale, has exceeded his own genetic scale and does not almost respond to these
aggressive stimuli. As it happens with animals, this theory justifies the male’s tendency to
higher levels of aggressiveness.
Another theory e.i. Personality Theory, the violent behavior is based in personality
constitutional traits, such as the absence of self-control and impulsivity, or the existence of
cognitive deficits such as the difficulty of putting themselves in the place of the victim. From
this perspective, it is considered that the personality factors determine or may sometimes
increase the probability of the person to be involved in aggressive behaviors.
