Gender factors of forming aggressive behavior in adolescence 2519
Nowadays, the increasing number of crimes committed by young people is widespread . Illegal acts are committed not only by boys, but also by teenager girls. Society has always struggled with behavior that deliberately violate the rights of the people. But in contrast to this, occurs the legitimization of individual forms of aggressive behavior, which contributes to increased violence. Therefore, this issue is of interest for more and more researchers every year. Today psychologists are studying the characteristics of adolescents behaviour, addressing the gender role development. Considering this, we have paid great attention to the issue of gender identity formation in adolescents. It is important to understand the process of gender roles self-consciousness formation and the impact it may have on the behavior and socialization of a child. It is worth noting that this work affects not only the usual factors of aggressive behavior, but also describes a relatively new aspect of the problem. We can see another problem of deviant behavior, which in the future will be to work to prevent similar trends on the “zero” point.
