The main thesis is devoted to the study of intra-group cohesion of adolescents in special closed-type schools for children with deviant behavior. Social cohesion is considered as a factor of well-being of society, individual groups and their members. Social cohesion, on the one hand, provides social support to the individual in a stressful situation. On the other hand, it provides for more effective social control. In our work, we will study a special closed-type school as one of the institutionalized forms of social control. Special closed-type schools for children with deviant behavior is a unique institution. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it combines the functions of a secondary school and an educational colony. The cohesion of adolescents plays an important role in their resocialization. The high level of cohesion of a group formed or emerging in a closed institution is a barrier to further integration of group members into the company and increases the risks of the company from interaction with this group. Three main concepts will be used in the work: social cohesion, small group and total Institute. We will consider social cohesion from the position of W. G. Sumner. Next, we present the conceptualization of a small group on R. Merton. Then we turn to the concept of a total Institute, where the main works will be the work of I. Hoffman and A. Oleynik. As part of the planned study, we intend to interview students and teachers of closed schools and to analyze the grounds of intra-group cohesion of adolescents, internal and external influences that seem to actors involved in the situation significant for the development of cohesion, as well as the role of cohesion in the resocialization of a teenager with deviant behavior.
