Il presente articolo offre una lettura del fenomeno del Dating Aggression - aggressività nelle esperienze sentimentali - utilizzando una prospettiva evolutiva-contestuale, che enfatizza un modello teorico longitudinale di interazione individuo-ambiente. Secondo questo modello, la presenza e la persistenza di comportamenti aggressivi tra partner è il risultato dell’interazione tra disposizioni individuali, apprendimenti precedenti e influenze dei sistemi sociali prossimali che variano nel corso dello sviluppo (ad esempio, famiglia, pari, partner).


Keywords: Dating aggression, comportamenti aggressivi, relazioni sentimentali, prospettiva evolutiva-contestuale.
