The problem of aggressive behavior is rather important as a social phenomenon and is not only of research, but also of practical interest. To combat this phenomenon and have the opportunity to confront and prevent aggression and ill-treatment, it is necessary, as a condition, to examine the causes and background of aggressive behavior in adolescents. One should consider and study the problem in conjunction with the complicated social processes that take place in today's society and the changes that occur in the immediate vicinity of the teenager: in family, at school, etc. It is also necessary to take into account the contemporary social situation in which the adolescent lives, as potentially unsafe and threatening his full life activities. Thus, the challenge in the center of our attention, can be formulated as a question about the study of aggressive behavior of adolescents as a coping strategy in stressful situations.
