Peer Emotion Socialization and the Development of Aggressive Behavior in Adolescence 

Hometown: Bethesda, Maryland

Department: Psychology

Advisor: Janice Zeman

My honors thesis will focus on the influence of peer socialization of anger on the development of aggressive behavior in adolescence. Given that adolescence is characterized by a normative decrease in aggression, and by increasing time spent with peers, understanding the role of peers in facilitating or inhibiting this decrease in aggression is important, yet understudied. As youths with disruptive behavior disorders are frequently congregated in special education classrooms or group therapy, this area of research also has potential clinical implications. My honors research will focus on the four-year follow-up interviews with a group of youth who began participating in a larger study when they were twelve years old, allowing me to used advanced longitudinal statistical methods to explore this important facet of development
