Example text

Gewalthandlungen sind in diesem Fall sowohl Initiationsritus, Bestätigung der Zusammengehörigkeit als auch ‚handgreifliche’ Festlegung der Hierarchie. In diesem Fall ist Gewaltausübung eine Interaktionsform, welche Zugehörigkeit herstellt und/oder bestätigt. Die gewaltaffine Gruppe kann die Funktion einer ‚Ersatzfamilie’ für weibliche Jugendliche haben, in die sie aus den belastenden Familienverhältnissen entfliehen können (Silkenbeumer, 2007). Etwa die Hälfte aller physisch aggressiven Jugendlichen hat Freunde und ist auf Cliquenebene gut integriert.

Auch der chronische Gebrauch und Missbrauch von Alkohol und Drogen durch die Eltern der Mädchen und/oder durch die Mädchen selber kann Mädchen in gewalttätiges Verhalten führen (Chesney-Lind & Brown 1999, Artz, Nicholson & Rodriguez 2004). Nach Bruhns und Wittmann (2002) entstehen Gewalt befürwortende Orientierungen bei Mädchen im Zusammenspiel belastender sozioökonomischer und familiärer Lebensverhältnisse, einer aktiv achtungsfordernden Haltung, dem Wunsch nach Erleben von Selbstwirksamkeit und der Stützung und Stabilisierung dieser Tendenzen durch eine Gleichaltrigengruppe.

Es sind Faktoren wie problematische Familiendynamiken, Schulschwierigkeiten und die Akzeptierung nichtegalitärer Geschlechterbeziehungen. Aber auch Persönlichkeits- und Gesundheitsfaktoren wirken als Belastung, beispielsweise Depression, ein geringes Selbstwertgefühl und negatives Selbstbild, die Vermeidung von Langeweile und die Suche nach Aufmerksamkeit, welche auf einem Drang darauf beruht, bemerkt, miteinbezogen, stimuliert und wertgeschätzt zu werden. Auch der chronische Gebrauch und Missbrauch von Alkohol und Drogen durch die Eltern der Mädchen und/oder durch die Mädchen selber kann Mädchen in gewalttätiges Verhalten führen (Chesney-Lind & Brown 1999, Artz, Nicholson & Rodriguez 2004).
