The objective of the study was to identify family determinants of aggression strategy used by adolescents in social conflict situations from among educational attitudes and the pattern of coping with difficult situations used by parents. The study employed SPR M. Plopa’s questionnaire to test the perception of parental attitudes, a proprietary questionnaire to test the parents coping strategies in social conflict situations (SRwSK) and a proprietary questionnaire to test the coping strategies of youth in social conflict situations (KSRK). Empirical research involved 892 adolescents (467 girls and 425 boys) aged 13-15. In light of the performed tests it has been found that adolescents’ aggressive response to emotional tension, arising in a social conflict situation, is shaped by inappropriate educational attitudes characterised by lack of stability in behaviour of the mother and the father towards an adolescent. Moreover, an important factor of a family system, contributing to the development of aggression strategies of young people coping in social conflict situations, is to pass onto adolescent children the patterns of aggression strategies by the parents.
Key words: youth, aggression strategy, social conflict situations, educational attitudes of parents, patterns of parental response to conflict
