Abstract: This study explored the association between parental arrest and twofunctions of aggression (i.e., reactive and proactive aggression)among 797 Singaporean adolescents. The moderating effects of psychopathic traits and gender were also investigated in the parentalarrest-reactive/proactive aggression link. Parental arrest was found to be significantly and positively related to both reactive andproactive aggression, especially proactive aggression. Psychopathic traits strengthened the link between parental arrest and proac-tive aggression in adolescents with stronger effects for girls in this Singaporean sample. These findings point to the importance ofearlyinterventionwithrespecttogirlswhodisplay high levels of psychopathic traits, especially when they also have parents with aprior arrest history, so as to reduce their levels of proactive aggression.
