The aim of the presented research was the development and testing of special exercises for the formation of skills to competently determine the causes of deviant behavior among adolescents during psychology classes in students of pedagogical high school. The study involved 23 students of 2nd grade at Moscow State Pedagogical University. Methodological basis for students training were the results of studies carried out in line with the concept of psychological diagnosis by A.F. Anufriev. The focus of the proposed exercises is the diagnostic hypotheses production, because in previous studies it was noted that this step of the diagnostic search is of the greatest difficulty for teachers. The efficiency of the developed exercises was evaluated by the quality of the problems solution proposed by the students to assess the causes of deviant behavior of middle school students. According to the study, we concluded that the exercises proposed to pedagogical high school students increase quality of solving problems and can significantly reduce the number of errors inherent in the activities of teachers to determine the causes of the behavior of students.
