Background and Objectives: Deafness is the most common human sensory impairment. Students with hearing impairment have more behavior problems in terms of emotion, education and communication with others. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between stress coping strategies and social skills with aggression in deaf female students.
Materials & Methods: In this correlative-descriptive study, 50 deaf female students with 12 to 20 years old were selected by census sampling method from all exceptional schools in Kermanshah city in 2014-15 academic years. Data is collected with Buss and Perry Aggression Questionnaire (BPAQ), The Teenage Inventory of Social Skills (TISS) and Coping Inventory for Stressful Situation (CISS-21). The collected data were analyzed in the SPSS software (IBM SPSS Version 21) using the pearson correlation coefficient and regression analysis.
Results: Findings showed that there wasn’t a significant relationship between problem-oriented coping style and aggression (p=0/115), but there was a significant relationship between emotionally-oriented (p=0/19) and avoidance-oriented style (p=0/12) with aggression. There was a significant negative relationship between social skills and total aggression score (p=0/46), physical aggression (p=0/41), verbal aggression (p=0/28), angry (p=0/32) and hostility (p=0/19). Also social skills (p=0/23), emotionally-oriented (p=0/12) and avoidance-oriented style (p=0/31) can predict aggression.
Conclusions: Regarding to relationship between stress coping strategies and social skills with aggression, we can reduced disturbances, stress and consequently aggressions, by training individuals in coping with psychological problems and stress. , and provided effective help in mental health of deaf students. Therefore it is necessary to consider the education programs in social skills by educators in exceptional schools.
