The purpose of the research was to examine the complex reality associated with the relationship between social skills and their influence on tolerance to frustration in adolescents in an Abancay educational institution in 2021. This applied study used a quantitative approach, with a non-experimental design, explicative level, descriptive and inferential statistics. A sample of 85 collaborators was considered as students of the educational institution. For collecting the respective information, participants were surveyed for responses according to the social skill scale and frustration tolerance scale (TOFRU). Social skills influenced tolerance to frustration in boys of an educational institution in 2021, at a general level and through dimensions such as rational thoughts, appropriate emotions, behavior, self-help, self-expression in social situations, saying no, cutting interactions off, and making requests. This study will provide relevant information on tolerance to frustration in adolescents and its relationship with knowing how to handle emotions facing an event that does not turn out as imagined. It will serve other researchers in psychology as a reference or study background. The study will expand the theoretical knowledge that a greater tendency in the variable tolerance to frustration provokes better management of social skills.
