DV, child abuse, power/dominance, jealousy, overlap w/ evolutionary psych, relational schemas SOCIAL PSYCH Aggression elicited by situation rather than personality; cog dissonance theory Social cognition: schemas/scripts/knowledge structures; learned social behaviours; triggers/cues; media effects; automaticity/priming Social interaction theory o Tedeschi & Felson 1994 – aggression as way of achieving desired goals (instrumental approach) o Goals: obtain something of value, revenge, put forward desired image (tough/competent) GENERAL AGGRESSION MODEL Craig Anderson, Brad Bushman – aggression episode depends on nature of situation (aspects triggering aggression) & what person brings to it (beliefs, personality factors, memories) that increase readiness to aggress in that situation Response depends on nature of thoughts, feelings, physiological responses aroused & then how much person thinks through their response GAM – person inputs o Evolutionary factors/drives, bio factors (genetic predispositions), personality (schemas), cog factors (beliefs, attitudes, scripts), emotional tendencies (temperament), gender, perceptions, affect readiness to respond w/ aggression GAM – situational factors
PSY399 NOTES o Aggressive cues, provocation, frustration, pain, drugs, triggers GAM routes – cognitions o Activation of hostile thoughts, schemas, scripts, beliefs, attributions (e.g. hostile attributional bias) o Learning/social learning; script theory; cog neo-association theory; social cognition GAM routes – affects o Mood/emotion (anger, hostility, shame, humiliation) o Expressive motor responses (evolved) – automatic physiological reactions in conjunction w/ specific emotions (changes to facial expressions) GAM routes – arousal o Complicated – some types of arousal reduce heart rate, sweating, BP; others increase it o Under-researched; energises/strengthens tendency to act; excitation transfer Outcomes – immediate appraisal o Influenced by present internal state (automatic, effortless, spontaneous, unaware) – may lead to automatic response (drives, evolution, CNT, emotion, bio, clinical) o Sufficient resources (enough time to consider response & cog capacity avail) + immediate appraisal outcome both important/unsatisfying engage in effortful reappraisals Reappraisals – search for alternative view of situation (consider past experiences, possible event causes, memories, delve deeper into features of current situation); many alternatives considered/discarded; cycling process ceases for thoughtful action to take place 4. MEDIA PSYCHOLOGY – aggression/violence PERSONALITY Learned material becomes part of personality, not just traits (Anderson, Sedikides) Schemas, scripts, expectancies, beliefs, attitudes Linked together w/in neural network – linked to related feelings/memories & action tendencies SOCIAL PSYCH Aggression elicited by situation > personality Cog dissonance theory; social cognition o Schemas/scripts/knowledge structure; learned social behaviours, triggers/cues, media effects, automaticity/priming SCREEN OVERUSE
