In recent years the number of researches studying aggression in the context of emotional intelligence has increased, however, the problem of the relationship between the level of aggression and the level of development of specific emotional intelligence components is still poorly studied. The purpose of this article is to give an overview of foreign studies focused on aggression and its connection with emotional intelligence and its components. The article considers studies demonstrating the relationship between the General level of aggression, physical and verbal aggression, overt and relational aggression, anger and hostility and emotional intelligence. The article presents the results of studies showing the specific role of emotional intelligence and its components in reducing the level of aggressive behavior, and the ability of emotional intelligence to be a predictor of aggressive behavior. A better understanding of these psychological processes will help to develop and implement more effective programs for the prevention of aggressive behavior.
