Natalia Anatolyevna llinykh, the adjunct, Academy of the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, Ryazan

The relevance of the research is dictated by the interest of domestic and foreign scientists in the identity of the criminal. In modern Russian psychology, the study of the psychological characteristics of convicts is carried out by such scientists as: M. G. Debolsky (2001), D. V. Sochivko (2006), A. A. Zharkikh (2013), A. I. Ushatikov (2015), V. M. Pozdnyakov (2015), D. V. Sochivko, M. G. Debolsky, E. N. Kozhevnikova (2017), I. S. Ganishina (2018) and others. In foreign science, this issue is studied by K. Dean, P. B. Mortensen, H. Stevens, R. M. Murray, E. Walsh, E. Agerbo and others. Despite considerable interest in the psychological characteristics of convicted prisoners, the questions of the aggressiveness of tub-infected convicts are poorly understood. The aim of the empirical research was the study of peculiarities of the aggressiveness of the TB-infected prisoners. Research objectives: organization and conduct of the study of aggressiveness of uninfected convicts; identification of features of the influence of aggressiveness on their behavior. The empirical study was conducted in a medical and correctional institution of the Russian Federal penitentiary service in the Novosibirsk region. The study involved 331 uninfected convicts. During the research, such empirical methods as testing, observation, and conversation were used. For testing was used the method of "Personal questionnaire of aggression Bass-Darki". Empirical data was processed using the computer program Psychometric Expert (version 9.1.0). Analyzing the empirical data, we came to the conclusion that tub-infected convicts are characterized by aggression, which is manifested in physical, verbal and indirect aggression. To a greater extent, physical aggression is characteristic, which manifests itself in a tendency to physical superiority over other people, or the use of physical force to suppress people. In their behavior, uninfected convicts show irritability, suspicion, negativism, as well as a sense of resentment and guilt. This manifests itself in discontent, feelings of hostility and anxiety about the social environment, as well as self-blame. This study is necessary to optimize psychological assistance to uninfected convicts, taking into account their psychological characteristics.
Keywords: aggressiveness, convicts, uninfected convicts, physical aggression, verbal aggression, indirect aggression, irritability, suspicion, negativism, resentment, guilt.
