The structure of such adolescents’ aggressiveness is identified, which contains cognitive, motivational, affective, and behavioral components. The article presents the methodical tools used at the empirical study to determine aggressiveness of adolescents with additive behavior and severity of certain relationships in their families. The article contains the results of theoretical studies performed by famous scientists who made attempts to define “aggressiveness”, “adolescents’ aggressiveness”, “additive behavior”. The empirical study aim was to determine family relationship influence on the aggressiveness of adolescents with additive behavior. According to the performed correlative analysis, there are correlations between aggressiveness of adolescents with additive behavior and severity of certain relationships in their families. The authors note that high aggressiveness is characteristic for adolescents brought up in families with hostile, aggressive moods; average aggressiveness is observed at adolescents living in families where parents give autonomy to their children; and low aggressiveness is observed at adolescents living in families where parents show positive interest to their children. The study results provide the basis for taking into account certain family features at the development of a program correcting adolescents’ aggressiveness.
