ABSTRACT

Aggression in adolescents becomes an importance focus in everyday life. This is because the impacts of aggression become a concern of many researchers. One study revealed that aggression behavior at age 14 would predict crime at age 26 (Pulkkinen & Pitten, 1993). This study aims to examine social skill variable as a moderator for relationship between anger management with aggression. This study used correlational study with moderated regression data analysis from Hayes. Subject in this study are adolescent have a behavioral problem (naughty and rebel in social life), amounting to 200 participants in a rehabilitation institution in Indonesia. The instruments of this study are Aggression Questionnaire (AQ), NAS-PI, and TISS. The result showed that anger management had an effect on aggression with 41.4%, p<0.01. Moderated regression test result’s is strong enough, it is equal to 45.74%, p<0.05. Therefore, social skill can prove to be a moderation variable between anger management and aggression and strengthen the influence of anger management to aggression.
