Significant associations between amount of sessions per week and the level of subjective vitality among other groups of counsellors were not found.

The article proposes to use the construct «existential fulfilment», understood as the realization of the four fundamental existential motivations (FM) identified by A. Laengle, as a generalized criterion of personal adultness. In the theoretical part of the article the criteria of personal adultness proposed by different authors, are systematized in accordance with the concept of the four FMs. A quantitative study (N = 3677) demonstrated moderate positive correlations of the indicators of existential fulfilment with self-control and systemic reflection. In the quantitative-qualitative study (N = 53), performed on the basis of the modified «Life Line» method by V. V. Nurkova, it was revealed that the greatest contribution to the process of personal maturation to the age of 23 is made by events related to the formation of the ability to withstand and accept conditions and limitations of life (1st FM) and with the formation of the structure of the self, which is shown in ability to be authentic (3rd FM). The greatest number of positive events influencing personal adultness occurs at the age of 18—23 years, the greatest number of negative events that prevent adultness occurs before the age of 12 years. Further research is needed with the involvement of groups of respondents older than 40 years.
Closeness is one of predictors of stability and satisfaction with romantic relationships. Despite the large number of studies intersubjective perspective on the phenomenon is not fully disclosed in the literature. In particular, few works are devoted to the dynamics of I providing this special kind of experience of pre-reflective connectedness among people. Based on the concept of the reflected agency of V. A. Petrovsky and on the principles of a new personology (V. A. Petrovsky, E. B. Starovoitenko), the article considers closeness as a special experience of connection with others, achieved through reciprocal representation of reflected agency (otherness, to which I do not want to resist). In accordance with the levels of reflected agency, three levels of closeness are described, and important aspects that constitute the phenomenon (risk, authentic expression of emotions, alternation of openness and delimitation in relationships) are revealed.
The problem of human coping with difficult life situations. Taking into account the criticism of the "postulate congruity" - adaptability of mental processes and behavioral acts of the individual. The author analyzes the main approaches to the study of coping on the example of behaviorism, psychoanalysis, humanistic psychology, cognitive behavior therapy and gestalt therapy. The challenge is to reconcile, on the one hand, individual target setting for adaptation, and the other - its aspiration to move beyond the limits of the situation. In the context of multisubject approach V.A. Petrovsky is an attempt to solve this problem unfolded. It has been shown both by masters the behavior (that means "suprasituational" position of the person) open new possibilities for resolving a difficult situation (through that you need to go through to get into the world of "the other side" know). It presents various options for scanning the subject's activity - new models of adaptive and maladaptive behaviors. In psychological discourse introduced a new concept - emotional "flutter" ("bumpiness") - which means a state of heightened tension and instability, due to the uncertainty of a positive or negative outcome of the situation. The idea of passing emotional flutter regarded as "psychological tool" (L.S. Vygotsky) seizes behavior.
