Theoretical Explanations of Violence

Are human beings born violent or are they born free from violent tendencies? These questions have been the topic of debate among behavioral and social scientists for decades. In an effort to answer these questions, multiple theories on the origins of aggression have been developed.

Review the following theories and select two for this assignment:

  • Excitation Transfer Theory
  • Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic Viewpoint
  • Ethological Viewpoint
  • Frustration-Aggression Hypothesis
  • Displaced Aggression Theory

Using the Argosy University online library resources, the readings for this module, and the Internet, research your selected theories.

Respond to the following:

  • Compare and contrast the two theories you have selected. Create a chart to provide your summary of the differences.
  • Examine which theory best explains aggression.
  • Support your statements with scholarly references and appropriate examples.

Write a 3–4-page paper in Word format and include your chart that summarizes the differences between the two selected theories. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Be sure to include a tile page and reference page in APA format. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M1_A3.doc. For example, if your name is John Smith, your document will be named SmithJ_M1_A3.doc.
