Abstract: Using a sample of 462 adolescent girls, this study addressed physical and emotional health problems that aggressive girls may experience relative to non-aggressive girls, and and the role of the parent-daughter relationship in the association of aggression and health problems. Compared to nonaggressive girls, girls who were highly aggressive, experienced significant physical and emotional health problems and were at higher risk of having problems in their relationships with their parents. A developmental contextual approach to intervention is suggested as a strategy to both respond to the individual needs of aggressive girls and to influence the ability of the social environment to support their healthy development. Social policies that acknowledge relationships as a key determinant of health are suggested to support transdisciplinary partnerships with the capacity to develop, and and systematically evaluate, intervention outcomes to ensure that programs are effective in evoking improved and sustained health outcomes for aggressive girls.
