The article is devoted to the problem of activation of national and civic identity. The authors determined the indicators of national and civic identity for qualitative content analysis of verbal and non-verbal components of multimodal texts (comics). The authors considered the peculiarities of usage of comics in training practice for: actualization of national and civic self-identification barriers of youth in different subsystems of social interaction; increasing the youth’s resistance to propaganda’s influence; fixation of positive change during the training. The authors established, that comics creation as a method has high diagnostic and developmental potential for activation of youth’s national and civic self-identification processes. It was shown, that usage of comics: 1) facilitates the interaction between verbal and non-verbal components of the comics and also has ample opportunities of its usage as a projective technique; 2) provides the procedure’s relevance for the target audience, since creative tasks, that involve comics creation are familiar to youth; 3) matches the basic ways of communication practices change (articulation, reconfiguration,borrowing); 4) enables the realization of clarification, prognostic modeling and construction (reconstruction) of the identification discourse. The authors revealed three basic intentions, that arised among the training participants during the comics’ remake: increase of the comics’ characters activity in defending their own national and civic identity, increase of characters’ assertiveness level (the ability to defend their own standpoint without the violation of anther individual’s moral rights) and willing to search for ways to constructively solve conflict situations. The existence of those intentions can be considered as evidence of participants’ positive change and general effectiveness of the training.
