Motivational & Interdependence theories Mesmer_W_w1_Discussion A HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE CAMPUS SHOOTING Individual approach applied to Frustration-aggression The individual approach to analysis of Frustration-aggression is going to be needed because it “is typically used by clinical and personality psychologist, to explain behavior in terms of a person’s unique life history and psychological characteristics. According to this viewpoint, personality traits and motives can explain why individuals behave as they do, and why two people react differently to the same situation” (Taylor, Peplau, & Sears, 2006 p. 3-4). This of course would lead to an analysis of frustration- aggression in the shooter, but not necessarily in the individuals that were chosen as the focus of the aggression. In the case of mass shootings on campuses there is always a common denominator. The shooting was focused at certain individuals and the attacks were ‘apparently’ spontaneous. Of course the usual questions arise after every incident.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
