Características comportamentales de la agresión y de la violencia: implicaciones para la prevención

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Several sequences of violent behavior, along 28 days, with five patterns of characteristic violent behavior obtained from a 97 participant sample, are analyzed. Five patterns allowed classifying the whole sample, although differences are found in the time series of the behavior of different subjects belonging to the same pattern. In general, individuals showed some regularity in violent behavior sequences, with oscillations in behavior sequences; differences among participants are found in the number of grouped behaviors, in the number of isolated behaviors, and in the intervals between behaviors. Besides, some implications for a prevention program to be implemented in a population with different sequences of violent behavior, are pointed out.
