Introduction: Adolescence is a transition period from childhood to adulthood. Important patterns that can affect a person's life throughout his/her lifetime are formed during this period. Therefore, it is necessary to study the variables associated with behavioral patterns, especially the high-risk behaviors among adolescents.
Methods: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between emotional atmosphere of the family, stress coping strategies, and high-risk behaviors among first year high school students in Bandar Abbas. The statistical population of this study consisted of first year high school students in Bandar Abbas, in the academic year of 2014-2015. The sample size of the research consisted of 3506 randomly selected participants. The data collection tool was the Ministry of Education's Mental-Behavioral Health Scale.
Results: Regression analysis showed that the emotional atmosphere of the family and the stress coping strategies explain 12% of the changes in the high-risk behaviors. However, the results showed that stress coping strategies alone explain 11% of the changes in the variance of the high-risk behaviors, and the emotional atmosphere of the family explains about 4.5% of the changes in the variance of high-risk behaviors.
Conclusion: Generally, it can be said that the emotional atmosphere of the family, as well as stress coping strategies are important variables related to high-risk behaviors among adolescents.
