Reeja Annie Zachariah | Dr. Pratiksha Patrick

Abstract: Due to an ever-changing modernization of society, there has been a significant growth in the incidents of aggression among youth and adolescents. However, our young generation is wasting their golden period in aggressive activities, violence, and getting involved in crimes. Adolescent age is a period of stress and storm associated with drastic changes in physical and psychological domains and some adolescents find it difficult to cope up with. A correlative descriptive survey approach was adopted to assess the level of aggression and psychological well-being of adolescents in selected schools of Pathanamthitta District in Kerala. A descriptive survey method was used among 400 adolescents aged 12 to 17 years and a convenient sampling technique was selected for the study. The data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The result revealed that 20.85% of adolescents have average aggression and 79.3% of adolescents have high aggression. The study findings revealed that 53.8% of adolescents have high psychological well being and 46.3% of adolescents have low psychological well being and also there is significant negative correlation between aggression and psychological well being (r=-1.07). There is significant association between aggression and psychological well being with selected demographic variables like age, religion, marital status and type of family.
