Actuality and social as well as practical significance of studying victim behaviour in adolescence as the most vulnerable are grounded in the article. The results of psychological diagnostic study that was directed to identifying the adolescent behavioral strategies which dominate in a conflict, the teenagers' bent to different types of victim behaviour and correlating connections between the defined indices are described. The analysis of the empirical data resulted in confirming the hypothesis as the follow: the bent of adolescents to the active models of victim behaviour statistically significantly correlates with the active strategies of rivalry and cooperation, and the bent to the passive forms of victim behaviour statistically significantly correlates with the passive strategies of avoidance and adaptation. The correlation analysis results and the revealed tendencies are described. The prospects of further research are indicated.
