Relational aggression, executive functions and Theory of Mind in preadolescent students (Master thesis)

Μπακαλάκη, Μαρία/ Bakalaki, Maria


The purpose of the present study was to investigate the relationship among Relational Aggression (Proactive and Reactive), Executive Functions (Inhibition, Memory and Shifting) and Theory of Mind in 97 preadolescent students (55.7% girls) of the 5th and 6th grade of Elementary School using individual tests and a self-report questionnaire. Data analyses revealed positive correlations between Proactive Relational Aggression, Reactive Relational Aggression, Memory and Shifting, whereas Proactive Aggression had negative correlations with Inhibition. Furthermore, there were significant correlations between Theory of Mind and Inhibition. The study also showed that Proactive Relational Aggression was predicted by Reactive Relational Aggression, Inhibition and Memory, whereas Reactive Relational Aggression was predicted only by Proactive Relational Aggression. Findings are discussed in terms of their practical applications in school life.
