Recent research on physical aggression in persons with intellectual disability: an overview

Physically aggressive behaviours pose major problems to carers supporting people with intellectual disability. This review considers the prevalence and nature of this form of challenging behaviour within this population and describes possible causal factors. Discusses the present status of both behavioural and pharmacological interventions for aggression and outlines the importance of devising reactive management plans for aggressive behaviours.
