1 of 8

Study suggests importance in targeting + reducing physical aggression in young children in order to reduce aggression development later on.
2 of 8
Brendgen Reliability

Brendgen Validity
The Study used teacher and peer ratings, which gives the findings greater validity especially as there was moderate concordance between the ratings for social and physical aggression for both groups.
4 of 8
Raine Generalisability
Had 82 participants taking part in the experiment- representative of the target population.
5 of 8

7 of 8
