Aggression and Violence in Youth and Issue of Delinquency

Poonam Pathak [2]

Abstract: Aggression and violence are the most important issues that modern society is facing. Both the electronic and print media is full of news on violence, crime, murder, rape, child abuse, harassment and so on. The peculiar change that one can notice is the increasing involvement of adolescents in these crimes. No single factor can predict who is likely to engage in violent behaviour, but various studies have established developmental phases that lead to anti-social and delinquent behaviour. Various socio-economical and psychological factors have a great bearing on the young impressionable minds. If not handled on time the young, agile and productive youth will take no time to change into an uncontrollable force that can devastate everything coming in their way.
