Abstract: The article studied the social and psychological adaptation and stress resistance characteristics of IDPs living in Baku city and its surrounding districts. It was determined that the social and psychological adaptation and stress resistance characteristics of IDPs living in Baku city and its surrounding districts is comprehensively affected by their individual psychological characteristics, sexual differences, long term frustration, number of children in the family and conflicts in the family. Delay in the process of returning to their homeland and injuries caused during displacement are considered to be one of the main factors. It should be taken into consideration that migration being coercive is one of the factors that make adaptation difficult along with many aspects. So, according to the results of social and psychological methods directed to the determination of social adaptation and stress resistance, though indicators that are considered important about the exposure of internally displaced persons (IDPs) living in Baku city and its surrounding districts to stress from local impacts have not been found, on the contrary, violations of posttraumatic nature are high which reduces the indications of stress resistance and adaptation.
