    Master thesis examines the role of familiy surroundings in the emergence of aggressive behaviour and externalised behavioural disorder. It focuses on the perspective and opinion of the adolescents, about the role of the primary environment in the development of aggressive behaviour and externalised behavioural disorder in themselves. The analysed data were obtained from eight adolescents, placed in the Logatec Educational Institution or the Radeče Pre-educational Home. In processing the qualitative data, were used Bowlby's attachment theory, ecosystem theory and theories of psycho-social developmen. It also includes effects of traumatic experiences in previous periods. Different Researchs suggests, that the primary environment is crucial in building emotional, cognitive and social development of people. Presence of encouraging and discouraging factors constantly influence and shape the individual. The primary environment is therefore only one of the key factors in an individual's development. The obtained data confirmed the presence of discouraging factors like use of substances (alcohol and drugs); the importance of the type of established relationship with the caregivers, the socio-economic status of the family and the transmission of aggressive behaviour. Future orientation, as finding job, involvement in the school system and peers, were identified as motivating factors. It is important to note, that the same factor can be either encouraging or discouraging, and therefore the focus on behavioural disorders needs to be holistic, as according to A. Kobolt (2010), in some adolescents, undesirable behaviours resolve on their own, while in others they escalate.
