Aggressive behaviour

Young people who exhibit aggressive behaviour often use their aggression as a means to achieve a certain goal. To conceal their own insecurity, for example, or to show power.

Teenagers and young adults that cope with aggressive behaviour have noticed that with the help of their aggressiveness they can get things done. Or that situations take a turn that is beneficial to them. If young persons cannot control themselves, they think only of themselves and no longer take others into account.

Characteristics of aggressive behaviour

The agressiveness can be external (externalised aggression, aimed at the young person's environment) or internal (internalised aggression, aimed at the young person himself). Examples of externalised aggression are vandalism, swearing, humiliating, arson, anger eruptions and/or bullying. Internalised aggression is characterised by various forms of self-harm (injuring oneself), such as scratching and cutting, hitting walls or hitting walls and doors with one's head. Both forms can arise from unpleasant experiences from the past, a trauma for example.

Treatment of aggressive behaviour

At Yes We Can Youth Clinics we help young people to overcome aggressive behaivour and to live and function in society in a pleasant way. Yes We Can Youth Clinics aims to reduce any medication that the young people already receive to zero or as little as possible during the treatment.
