Loudin‚ Loukas‚ & Robinson Relational Aggression Subscale

The Loudin, Loukas, & Robinson Relational Aggression Subscale (LLR) is a tool used to measure the level of relational aggression in children and adolescents. Relational aggression is a form of psychological aggression that involves the use of social relationships and power dynamics to manipulate, intimidate, or harm another person. It is often referred to ascovert aggression because it can be difficult to detect and is often seen in social situations. The LLR is a 20-item questionnaire that assesses the frequency of relational aggression in children and adolescents. It was developed by researchers Loudin, Loukas, and Robinson in 2006 and is designed to measure the frequency of behaviors such as gossiping, spreading rumors, excluding others, and manipulating social relationships. The items are rated on a 4-point Likert scale fromnot at all tovery often. The LLR has been found to be a reliable and valid measure of relational aggression in children and adolescents. It has been used in a variety of studies to measure the level of relational aggression in different populations. It has also been used to assess the effectiveness of interventions designed to reduce relational aggression.
