The present study examined the prevalence and correlates in experiencing and perpetrating relational aggression in the context of adolescents’ perceived parental relationship and friendships at academic setting. A sample (N=400) consisted of adolescents (n=200 boys and n=200 girls) was selected through stratified sampling from public and private schools and colleges. Multiple statistical analyses indicated the relationship and determinants/correlates of relational aggression including age, gender, class, parental rearing styles, parental education, number of siblings, family system, private/public academic institutes, and social support at school/college setting. The results would help in identification, intervention and prevention of relational aggression’s perpetration and victimization at multi-cultural settings including educational, counseling, social and scientific research.
