5 Causes of Aggressive Behavior That Have Childhood Roots.

By Jamie Logie.

July 17, 2019. 

 

 

 

Can aggressive behavior be because of an overreaction to certain situations, or does it have deeper roots?

When you look at all the violence that’s around us, it seems easy to put blame on it. We also might feel that it’s just our human nature to have aggressive behavior and there’s nothing that we can do about it.
It may also be thought of as an act of self-preservation, connected to our evolutionary biology, and important for our survival. But just because we can be aggressive doesn’t mean that we should. We can be calm and under control, so it shows we don’t have to be controlled by behavior that is violent.
Behavior like this never has a place, but it’s important to look at why it’s happening in the first place. If it’s a reaction to a stressful, or threatening situation that may explain some of it, but does it go deeper?
Looking at the causes of aggressive behavior can help to identify if it’s connected to childhood roots. Getting a better understanding of all this can help in dealing with this dangerous situation.

This article will look at 5 causes of aggressive behavior that may have childhood roots.

1. Imitation Of Daily Life & Environment For Aggressive Behavior

This might be one of the easiest causes to identify that has childhood roots. Children mimic what they see and if they are brought up in an aggressive – or violent – environment, this will have a serious impact on them.
The problem that happens is that this aggressive behavior can accidentally be encouraged without people being aware of it. If we ignore this behavior, it can signal to the child it’s ok and they will continue to act this way throughout their lives.
In worse situations, this behavior may have been encouraged at a young age and it’s cemented into them as a positive characteristic. The instinct to act this way continues into adulthood with the individual unable to understand why it’s become a part of them.

2. Poor Relationship Skills

Some people have had trouble developing proper relationship skills and this can cause them to lash out and get aggressive. It can all come down to being frustrated and not knowing how to handle this frustration. They may also feel overwhelmed in various relationships and it becomes their default setting.
We can trace this back to childhood and a lack of a nurturing environment. The individual may start to see people as threats instead of being able to connect with them. This behavior can easily be carried into the future creating more frustration as they may not understand why relationships can’t develop or be maintained.

3. Trouble Coping With Emotions

Everyone has trouble dealing with emotions at some point, but a well-adjusted person will have learned to cope. Different emotions can easily cause aggressive behavior whether it’s fear, guilt, jealousy, or sadness. When that person gets older, those same emotions can cause the aggressive outbursts as they have never learned how to manage their feelings.
Children cannot handle emotions and it needs to be taught and nurtured, so it doesn’t lead to destructive behavior. This can be even tougher for people with cognitive disorders, or having autism spectrum disorder, as childhood will be even more frustrating.
Besides not having the ability to cope with the frustration, they might not even know why they are feeling the way they do. They also may not even be able to describe the situation causing the frustration.

4. Socioeconomic Status

Whether it’s a child or an adult, certain socioeconomic circumstances can trigger stressors that might lead to behavior that’s aggressive. There can be many factors that cause this including feelings of oppression in the household because of unemployment, lack of financial stability, living situations, and education.
These conditions would affect adults in the household and this would trickle down to any children living there. The child could then carry this mindset into adulthood and those same stressors will again cause aggressive behavior.

5. Depression

Depression is often a cause of this negative behavior, but it might also have childhood roots. Research from 1998 shows that there is a close association between the quality of the child-parental relationship, aggression, and maternal depression.
The evidence also suggests that depressive symptoms in mothers who display negative, unsupportive, and withdrawn behaviors towards their offspring are less likely to develop secure attachments.
Depression in mothers can have a negative impact on children leading to their own depression that causes aggressive behavior. Then when those kids who are depressed have their own children, the cycle continues to repeat.
There are also studies that show a strong connection between depression and aggressive behavior in adolescent males. You can even look back a few years and predict this behavior before it happens. It goes back to looking at the offspring of depressed mothers. When the kids become young adults, they can begin to display this behavior at age 20.

Final Thoughts

There are many causes of aggressive behavior and it’s something that needs to be taken very seriously. It’s important to identify what is causing it, and sometimes it means looking back into the past.
Looking at a person’s childhood can give some insight into what may cause this behavior. From there, correcting it may be much more possible.

Naikan Reflection: 

How This Japanese Technique Transforms Your Relationships.

By Francesca F.

July 12th, 2019

 
 

 

Naikan Reflection helps us to better understand ourselves and others in our various relationships.
Relationships are complicated, and it is always easier to focus on the bad parts than the good. Naikan Reflection is a form of genuine self-reflection which aims to help us understand our relationships better.

By understanding the bigger picture, we can see the nuances of a relationship. Most significantly, you may find yourself recognizing cycles of negative behavior, or having a greater respect for what others do for you.

What Is Naikan Reflection?

Naikan Reflection is a structured method of self-reflection which helps us to get a more realistic sense of our relationships with others. It was developed by Japanese businessman and devoted Jodo Shinshu Buddhist, Yoshimoto Ishin.

Those who practice it claim that it helps them to understand themselves and others with who they have relationships.
The Three Questions of Naikan Reflection

Naikan Reflection is based on three key questionswhich help us to reflect on our relationships with others, from friends to family, co-workers to acquaintances.
  1. What have I received from…?
  2. What have I given to…?
  3. What troubles and difficulties have I caused…?
There is a logical fourth question in this series which is ‘What troubles and difficulties have… caused me?’ This question was purposefully ignored because of the belief that this question is responsible for too much misery in daily life.
One of the most important aspects of Naikan Reflection is that it assumes we are all naturally good at seeing an answer to this fourth question. In contrast, true knowledge comes from a little introspection.

Three Different Methods to Practice Naikan Reflection

The general method of practicing Naikan Reflection is to answer these questions in detail.
  • Examine first what you have received from others.
There are times we receive things from others without understanding the sacrifices they made or the thought they gave it. Take the time to understand this and to whom you should be grateful.
  • Next, consider what you have given to others.
We are all susceptible to self-criticism. Taking the time to understand how you are capable of helping others can change our perception of ourselves.
As a result, this is a valuable tool because it helps to boost self-esteem and change our mindset. When we see the good in what we have done without making a conscious effort, we can see the good we are capable of in the future.
  • The final question is not the easiest to answer.
We never like to point fingers at ourselves; doing so can be difficult. Yet, we must understand the hardships we have caused others to truly be introspective. When we see what difficulties we have caused others, we can begin to understand and even repair those relationships.
There are three main ways Naikan Reflection can be practiced, so you can find the right method for you.

Daily Naikan (Nichijo Naikan)

Daily Naikan Reflection takes only 20 to 30 minutes before falling asleep. Sit in a quiet place and minimize distractions. Consider the three questions of Naikan and answer them in relation to the events of the day.
Try to be as specific as you can rather than generalize about ‘receiving food’ or ‘gave assistance.’ It may seem trivial, but it is important to recognize what you should be grateful for and what you offer others.
This method is the simplest. It also keeps the self-reflection we do present in our daily lives.

Naikan Reflection on a Person

Naikan Reflection can be done in reference to a specific person. This method takes a little longer because it focuses on the entire relationship, beginning to end. Start with how you met, and slowly work your way through the ups and downs of the relationship chronologically.
Naikan Reflection on a person gives us greater insight and respect for a particular person. You may focus on a few weeks, or a few years, giving yourself a detailed account of hard times with the gift of hindsight.
You will be able to see how the relationship has strengthened or may be weakened. However, you will be able to see the situation as a whole.

A Naikan Retreat (Schuchu Naikan)

Naikan Retreats can be a scheduled event, or it can be something you venture to do alone. Taking yourself away for a set amount of time to a quiet and secluded place can be mind-opening.
Venture to a peaceful and private spot and give yourself nothing to do but reflect. View your life chronologically and assess all of your relationships in turn.
This is the most intense version of self-reflection and it can take some time to work up to this. However, those who take part in such retreats have profound and life-changing experiences. What is important is that you are sincere and committed to the experience.

Why self-reflection is important

Self-reflection is deeply entrenched in many of the world’s spiritual cultures. There are many different methods of self-reflection which can help open your mind to all that life is.
Naikan Reflection is simply one of many of these methods, but it helps us to form closer bonds through the understanding of our relationships.
Most importantly, practicing this reflection helps us to recognize the importance of others and the positive impact we can have in the lives of others.
