The relevance of the issue arises from the need to present experimental data confirming significance of the realization of educational potential of world literature in forming communicative skills of adolescents with deviant behavior. The purpose of this study is to uncover the scope of Humanities (primarily philological) in the process of addressing the realization of the creative potential of adolescents with deviant behavior in order to shape their moral values, create a positive learning and life motivation, and teach them to express their feelings and thoughts. The article consists of three parts. The first part of the article gives the theoretical basis of the development of communication skills among adolescents with deviant behavior. The second part of the article includes the research. The study involved 247 adolescents from two Kazan schools. As diagnostic tools, we have chosen the following diagnostics: 1) a diagnostic technique for deviating behavior (two options for girls and boys, respectively) by A.N. Orel; 2) the Cook and Medley Hostility Scale; 3) the Spielberger-Hanin Test. In the second stage, extracurricular activities were conducted with the experimental group for several months in order to carry out prevention using various activities and games, psycho-gymnastic exercises and trainings, and also to correct and reduce levels of aggression, anxiety, shyness, to correct the level of self-esteem among adolescents of the experimental group. In addition, in the experimental group, special trainings were held aimed at the formation of skills to properly express their thoughts. One of the types of work in this direction was the study of the haiku poetic genre unusual for Russian students. The third part of this article presents the analysis of the study and its conclusion. Haiku contributes to the realization of a strong emotional outburst; in addition, it is a good way to show how a person perceives the world around. The work on composing haiku with adolescents with deviant behavior helps go beyond self-analysis, personal concerns, and focuses on the outside world. The effectiveness of the program is verified and proven using the Wilcoxon T-test.
