My project focuses on vulnerability factors in the explanation of workplace aggression towards Dutch Penitentiary Workers. A conceptual model is constructed, derived out of a composed theoretical framework in which victim?s personality and behavioural characteristics are suggested to act as vulnerability factors for experiencing workplace aggression. The most important concepts in the model are Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, Maladapted Coping Strategies, Type D personality characteristics and Negative Childhood Experiences. In order to test the hypotheses formulated in the theoretical-conceptual model, a longitudinal quantitative study is conducted. In addition, a qualitative study is conducted to be able to investigate personal, sensitive or confidential information and to disclose specific mechanisms and dynamics between the variables in the conceptual model.
