ABSTRACT

Aggressive behaviour has been defined by some educational psychologists in various ways. Wood, Wood and Boyd (2014), defined it as the intentional infliction of physical or psychological harm on others. From this definition, it is obvious that for an act to be classified as an aggressive behaviour, the infliction of physical or psychological harm on others has to be intentional. Hence, unintended and accidental infliction of harm on others may not be rightly classified as aggressive behaviour (Ifeagwzi, 2010). Aggressive behaviour among secondary school students takes various forms. It can be physical or verbal. Physical aggression refers to inflicting injury on others, while verbal aggression entails using words that are intended to harm another person. Aggressive behaviour among secondary school students sometimes take the form of over reaction, screaming, shouting or becoming very agitated as a result of a very minor setback (Eziyi & Odoemelam, 2008). It also takes the form of quarrelling, insubordination, bullying, revolution, destruction of school property, protest, angry shouts of rebellion and so on.
