Paper on Parenting and Relational Aggression Accepted for Publication

Caitlin Clark, a doctoral student working in the lab, received some good news this summer. A paper based on her master's project was accepted for publication in the Journal of Aggression, Maltreatment & Trauma.

The paper, titled "The role of parenting in relational aggression and prosocial behavior among emerging adults," continues the lab's
research on relational aggression in college students. Results indicated that students' retrospective ratings of how they were parented were related to both relational aggression and prosocial behavior. Authoritative parenting, permissive parenting, and parental psychological control predicted relational aggression. Authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive parenting predicted prosocial behavior, and participant race moderated the relationship between psychological control and prosocial behavior (i.e., parental psychological control was inversely related to prosocial behavior for Black students but not for White students).

Parenting and Relational Aggression

Caitlin Clark, a first year master's student working in the lab, just received IRB approval for a study of parenting and relational aggression among college students. The study involves an exploratory investigation to determine whether the parenting style used by participants' parents during their childhood years is meaningfully related to different forms of relational aggression and victimization in early adulthood. Caitlin plans to begin data collection soon.
