Causes of Violence

Question:

Why do be become violent? Is it from their environment or from their heredity?

Answer:

Unfortunately, There are no simple answers to this question. Both the causes you mention can play a role. I would recommend a visit to your local college library where you would be able to search the literature for further information. I would ask the librarian to assist you in searching Medline and Psychinfo as a start. Good luck!
