Abstract. Rapid changes are taking place in modern society: economic conditions, familiar family traditions, educational standards are changing. Teenagers, by virtue of their psychophysiological characteristics, tend to react sharply to changes in public life, assimilating both the positive and negative influences of the changes that have arisen. The statistical data presented in the article raises anxiety about the low potential of modern adolescents to resist the negative phenomena of society. The article presents the results of studying the characteristics of the hardiness of adolescents with a tendency to deviant behavior. The survey involved teenagers 13-14 years old, studying in the eighth grade of school No. 70 in the city of Tyumen, in the amount of 100 people. To identify the tendency to deviant behavior in adolescents, the test of the same name by E.V. Leus. To identify the level of vitality, adapted by D.A. Leontiev, E.I. Rasskazova questionnaire by S. Muddy “Hardiness Survey”. As a result of the research work, 1) revealed a statistically significant differences (p £ 0.01) in the general level of resilience and the level of involvement of adolescents who are prone and not prone to deviations; 2) revealed a statistically significant inverse correlation (p £ 0.01) of the general level of resilience and the component of involvement with a tendency to autoaggressive, aggressive, delinquent behavior, as well as a significant inverse correlation of the control component with a tendency to autoaggressive behavior. The results of the study allow us to assume that the prevention of deviant behavior among adolescents will increase the level of resilience and reduce the risk of their socio-psychological maladjustment.

Keywords: hardiness, commitment, control, challenge, teenagers, deviant behavior, aggressive behavior, addictive behavior, delinquent behavior, suicidal behavior.
