Abstract

The article shows the results of the empirical research of the features of fears of the modern teenagers. It is explored, what fears are the most common and problematic for the seniors. The level, the prevalence and the hierarchy of these fears are determined. The phenomenology of the youth’s fears is specified. It was experimentally confirmed that most of actual fears of teenagers are related to their social life. It’s revealed that the strongest fears representing the modern society problems are the fears of the war and the illness. It’s also revealed that teenagers’ fears often appear in cognitive and somatic areas. The factors strengthening that fears are discovered in the article. The results of the interrogation with the method called «Identification of the subjective understanding of the own fears» show that the reason of appearance of the personal fears is low level of self-confidence. It was confirmed that the idea of one’s possibilities and the communication with the peers are the important parts of the psychological comfort. The research notes that the experience of fear is painful for teens if they don’t have basic trust to the world. Without this basis other psychical mechanisms of protection will be detached and powerless. They destruct quickly end leave a person defenseless in some psych traumatic situation. If protective mechanisms are weak or distorted and don’t comply their task, the fears can grow so much that it causes neurotic disorders, interfere the educational process, blocks the communication and deform emotional and volitional spheres of the teenager.
