Prevention of Aggressive Behavior of Adolescents through Psychological Training



The article considers the concept of a psychological crisis in the life of adolescents as a process of personality development, on the one hand. And on the other hand, as a factor creating psychophysical tension, which, not finding a way out, results in increased personal anxiety. Accumulating and not finding a solution, anxiety is realized in communication to the external environment through aggressive behavior. In order to get out of this situation, to prevent aggressiveness, to minimize internal stress and lower the level of anxiety of adolescents, the key areas of preventive work were identified. Based on them, a comprehensive psychological training program was developed using body-oriented techniques and cognitive-behavioral techniques. The program was tested and showed a positive result, lowering the level of aggressiveness from high to low through training sessions.
