Specificity of aggression manifestation in teenage age and methods of its preventing and overcoming

Keywords: aggression; aggressiveness; destructive behavior; adolescence; prevention and overcoming of aggressive behavior of adolescents.


The relevance of the research topic is that the aggressive behavior of adolescents has certain characteristics. The frustration of the need for adherence, recognition, love and protection from the part of adults, as well as the existence of situations of constant use of punishment, especially physical one is an important condition for the development and strengthening of adolescent aggression. The aim of the article is to consider specific features of adolescent aggression and identify the ways to prevent and overcome negative aggressive manifestations in adolescence. The objectives of the study are as follows: to summarize the data of the problem under study and to identify ways to prevent and overcome adolescent aggression. The methodological basis for the study of aggressive behavior of adolescents were the general scientific methods of empirical and theoretical generalization, deduction and induction, analysis and synthesis. Thus, in particular, the methods of empirical and theoretical generalization were used to clarify the conditions, specifics and problem moments of aggressive behavior; deduction and induction, as well as analysis and synthesis were applied to identify systemic problems in the field of education-upbringing-socialization of adolescents. The article presents a scientific and theoretical review of domestic and foreign studies devoted to the problem of manifestation of aggression in adolescence. New data on specific features of aggressive behavior in adolescence have been obtained. The individual psychological and socio-psychological factors of aggressive behavior of adolescents have been characterized. The result of the study is a theoretical understanding of the factors of aggressive behavior in adolescence and the possibilities of using psychocorrection programs. It has been determined that psychotherapeutic actions should be aimed at changes in the cognitive sphere of the personality of the adolescent through persuasion, suggestion, explanation and interpretation of uninformed experiences. It has been concluded that the formation of aggressive behavior of adolescents is influenced by a significant number of factors (individual, psychological and pedagogical, socio-psychological, personal, and social). Determination of ways to prevent or correct manifestations of aggression is associated with factors that affect the personality of the adolescent. The reasons for the formation of aggressive behavior of adolescents can be objective and subjective. The economic and social conditions of a society: economic instability, crisis, unemployment, sharp division into the rich and the poor, accompanied by a demonstration in the media of a bright lifestyle, are the objective factors contributing to the formation of motivation for aggression, violence and cruelty in adolescent behavior. Mental anomalies may be considered as subjective factors contributing to the choice of adolescent aggressive forms of behavior. Early detection of behavioral problems in adolescents, a systematic analysis of the nature of their occurrence, and adequate educational and corrective work give a chance to prevent the desocialization of adolescents. The untimely detection of the initial signs of deviant behavior and the problems in upbringing, which impede the development of the child, leads to a rapid transition of deviations into chronic behavioral disorders.
