The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of mindfulness and interpersonal stressors on physical and verbal aggressive behaviors. Participants included 107 undergraduate and graduate students. A multiple regression analysis showed that mindfulness significantly reduced the promotive effects of interpersonal stressors on verbal aggressive behavior; however, the same was not evident in the case of physical aggressive behavior. These findings may have important implications for the prevention of aggressive behaviors.
