Project description

This study examines how Dark Triad personality traits and school environment characteristics are associated with online and offline interpersonal violence in adolescents. Online and offline violence tend to co-occur, suggesting the presence of one or more underlying promotive/risk factors. These may be situated at the community level (school neighborhood, school social capital) or the individual level (Dark Triad, self-control, morality).
