1849

Abstract

We present the study results of psychological characteristics of adolescent orphans living outside the family and having a violation of socialization at the micro level. It was assumed that children experiencing total maternal deprivation from birth, have difficulties in adapting to life. It was revealed that in this group of adolescents the level of motivational tendencies is higher, reflecting a fear of rejection, and the level of suspicion. They are more than their peers convinced that other people are plotting something evil and can cause harm to demonstrate high degree of irritability, ready to show negative feelings at the slightest excitation (short temper, rudeness, stress, anger). These features are important to understand by specialists to create an educational system that allows to correct the negative aspects, prepare the child for substitute family, provide support and maintenance for a period of adaptation, to help prospective parents.
