Relationship between drug dependence and aggressive antisocial behavior, true or false? (English)
Abstract [sv]

Ungdomar är oftare mer impulsiva och risktagande jämfört med vuxna vilket kan relateras till omognad i hjärnstrukturerna. Detta leder ofta till att ungdomar agerar impulsivt utan att tänka på konsekvenserna av deras agerande. Det innebär också att ungdomar är mer benägna att prova nya saker som exempelvis droger. Drogmissbruk kan bland annat leda till antisocialt beteende (som inte sällan är aggressivt) psykisk ohälsa och kriminalitet. Syftet med denna studie var att undersöka om det finns skillnad i aggressivt antisocialt beteende hos marockanska ungdomar som är beroende av droger jämfört med marockanska ungdomar som inte är beroende av droger. För att svara på denna fråga användes en kvantitativ empirisk studiedesign med jämförande statistisk analys. Resultatet av studien visade att ungdomar med ett drogberoende är mer aggressiva, antisociala och mer benägna att skada sig själva jämfört med ungdomar som inte har något drogberoende. Dessa resultat stödjer tidigare fynd som visat att ungdomar som är drogberoende tenderar att ha ett aggressivt antisocialt beteende i större utsträckning jämfört med ungdomar som inte har något drogberoende.

Abstract [en]

Adolescents tend to be more impulsive and more prone to take risks compared to adults, which can be related to immaturity in the brain structure. This often leads to impulsive acts without thinking about the consequences of their actions. This also means that adolescents are more prone to try new things, like drugs for example. Drug misuse often leads to antisocial behavior (that is often aggressive, but doesn't have to be), mental illness and criminality. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there is a difference in aggressive antisocial behavior in Moroccan adolescents who are drug dependent compared to nondrug dependent Moroccan adolescents. To answer this question a quantitative empirical study design with comparative statistical analysis was used. The result of the study showed that Moroccan adolescents with drug dependence have higher scores in aggressive and antisocial behaviors and also more prone to self-harm than those Moroccan adolescents who have no drug dependence. These results support previous findings, which have shown that adolescents with a drug dependence tend to have aggressive antisocial behavior to a greater extent compared to adolescents who do not have a drug dependence.
