MORENO RUIZ, David; NEVES DE JESUS, Saul; MURGUI PEREZ, Sergio  and  MARTINEZ FERRER, Belén. A longitudinal study of non-conforming social reputation and violence in adolescents from the gender perspective. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2012, vol.21, n.1, pp.67-75. ISSN 2173-4712.

The aim of the current study was to analyze the relationship between non-conformist social reputation (perceived and ideal) and instrumental violence (overt and relational) in adolescents from the gender perspective. The sample was composed of 1319 adolescents -T1- aged from 11 to 16 years old (Mean 13.5; S.D. 1.5) and both sexes (53 % girls and 47 % boys) in secondary school, and 554 students -T2- (54 % girls and 46 % boys). Measures were Non-conformist social reputation scale (Carroll, Houghton, Hattie and Durkin, 1999) and Instrumental violence behavior scale (Little, Henrich, Jones and Hawley, 2003). From structural equation models it was found that the non-conforming social reputation -ideal and perceived- (T1) was related with non-conforming social reputation (T2). An indirect relation was also observed between perceived reputation (T1) and perceived reputation (T2) through overt instrumental violence. Results were analyzed from a gender perspective.

Keywords : adolescence; instrumental violence [overt and relational]; non-conforming social reputation [ideal and perceived].
