Dervishi E and Ibrahimi S

Aim: The present research is to explore the manifestation of aggressive behaviors in the years of adolescence and its relation to the type of attachment a with caregivers such as the mother and father, starting from the teenage point of view. The study was conducted during the 2016-2017 in 6 high schools of the city of Tirana. The sample included 693 teenagers aged 16-20 years old. We used the Parent’s Attachment Inventory (IPPA) (Armsden, Greenberg, 1987) that consists of 50 questions and the Questionnaire on Aggression (Buss, Perry, 1992) with 12 Likert-type questions exploring four dimensions of aggressiveness.

Results: The study revealed that it is of great importance in the way of communication with parents and the connection with the emergence of some aggressive behaviors. There are obvious differences between males and females regarding aggressive behavior.

Conclusion: We could refer that the linkage of parental figures with two forms of aggression emphasizes the significance of creating safe communication bridges throughout their development as a basis for adaptation with a positive approach to the environment.
