Abstract

Aggression behavior can get worse when individuals do not have anger management skills. Anger management or the ability to manage emotions and anger becomes important to reduce the level of aggression in adolescents. When adolescents individually learn to build relationships with their social so that they can be accepted by their peer group. The study aims to measure the aggression and anger management behavior mediated by peer acceptance. This research was conducted at the Panti Sosial Petirahan Anak Bimasakti (PSPA) as social institution with a population study involving all teenagers in the institution with 200 subjects. The results showed an indirect effect of 0.1153 which means that there was a relationship between anger management and aggression behavior mediated by peer acceptance, so that aggression behavior will decrease if the individual has the ability to manage anger emotions well accompanied by the acceptance of their peers.
