The paper presents results of analyzes of selected types of personality problems in adolescents, placed permanently in institutional care. It focuses on five areas of problems (emotional problems, behavioral problems, hyperactivity, problems with peer and deficits in prosocial behavior) and the influence of gender and ethnicity on their distribution. The sample consisted of 45 adolescents, permanently placed in institutional care. The results overall correspond to other studies in some areas are the values even lower. As the most problematic area appears a question of hyperactivity. The influence of gender and ethnicity did not show as significant in the majority of studied areas.
