Purpose: Many studies conclude that emotional quotient significantly affects students’ aggressive behaviour. By reviewing existing research articles the researcher focuses on the association between emotional intelligence and aggressive behaviour. The study's second goal is to call attention to specific facets of the relationship that were investigated. We also hoped to find research gaps that could lead to more research, in the future, in this area. The findings could be used as a foundation for developing emotional intelligence and emotional regulation programmes aimed at reducing adolescents’ aggressive behaviour.

Design/Methodology/Approach: We looked for articles published between 2000 and 2021 using the primary databases; Google Scholar, Research Gate, Academia, SSRN, Shodhganga, PubMed, Rayyan, and Elsevier. The words like emotional intelligence, aggressive behaviour, interventions, and aggression were used for searching articles.

Findings/Result: These findings reveal a clear link between emotional abilities and aggressive behaviour: those with greater emotional intelligence have less aggression, while people with lower emotional intelligence have more aggression. This relationship shows to hold true across a range of ages i.e., from childhood onwards, cultures, aggression kinds, and emotional intelligence assessments. Based on these review study it also discussed and put forward future research into emotional intelligence tactics and strategies for preventing and regulating aggressiveness.

Originality/Value: The study concluded that there exists a need for future research on psychological intervention and coping strategies, anger rumination, emotional regulating training program and relaxation therapy for enhancing the emotional wellbeing of adolescents. Both child’s interventions as well as parental interventions may raise mental health.

Paper Type: Systematic analysis of literature review.
