In the present research, several social dynamics of institutionalized adolescents have been studied. In order to achieve this, the studied concepts were defined: aggressiveness (with its several forms), hostility and social anxiety. These dynamics have been studied by comparing a group of 30 institutionalized adolescents and a group of 30 adolescents who lived with their families. Significant differences have been found between the two groups from the point of view of the studied dynamics. Through the directions that it advanced, the study represents a start for a specialized intervention for the institutionalized teenagers.
