Thinking Aloud
Factors in Human Aggression
What makes people do harmful things? Some psychologists have identified different reasons for human aggression. The reasons range from childhood rearing to the consumption of violent media. On today's Thinking Aloud, Marcus Smith hosts BYU psychology professor Bob Ridge to discuss some of the external factors that determine violent behavior. You might be surprised at the notion that even simple everyday practices might cause humans to behave aggressively.—Original airdate: 9/3/2009
