Abstract : The primary goal of this effort is to conduct a prospective study evaluating potential near term and longer term predictors of various forms of aggression and closely related constructs (e.g., physical assault, verbal aggression, anger / rage, bullying, harassment, intimate partner violence) as well as physical health and mental health outcomes often associated with exposure to aggression (e.g., drug / alcohol use, burnout, suicidal ideation). The effort examines both individual level variables (e.g., differences in within-person variability in emotional state, known as spin) and perceptions of group level variables (e.g., unit climate) hypothesized to impact aggression, health, and mental health. Because we anticipate many of the relations are reciprocal (e.g., aggression influences health, which also influences aggression), the study consists of several waves spanning roughly 14 months. During this project year (PY3), recruitment and screening continued on a rolling basis and waves 2, 3, and4 were launched for those participants who had enrolled early enough to be eligible for those waves
