Abstract: Reports a case study of 4 Hong Kong primary school boys who were identified as demonstrating consistent aggressive and violent behaviors. From extensive interviews with these boys, several psychosocial precursors to aggressive behaviors were identified. The predictors of aggression include emotional strain from troubled family relations, violent social stimuli from TV and peer interactions, school achievement related difficulties, and deficits in cognitive processing of social information. These findings seem to support components from different aggression theories, but none of the existing theories are seen to exclusively account for the aggressive behaviors observed in this study.
