Depending on the objective and tasks, the assistance is regarded as a research project, as a process of support and provision of favourable conditions for the development of emotional resilience, as a system of interaction between the therapist and the patient. Emotional resilience is defined as the ability of an individual to control emotional conditions in significant situations of social interaction and in professional activity. The most promising areas of increase in emotional resilience are the change in patient’s attitude to his own ability to control emotions and development of ability to emotional self-control. The characteristics of emotional resilience of an individual in socially significant and emotionally unfavourable situations (belief in own ability to control one’s emotional manifestations); balance of emotional manifestations; resilience of models of interaction; ability to control the whole process of interaction; ability to evaluate adequatelyand anticipate emotional manifestations; ability to vary systems of behaviour activation (shift from objective to metaobjective and vice versa); ability to reflect and empathize; basis on own positive and negative experience of overcoming unfavourable emotional state. Low level of emotional resilience is related to increased vulnerability; inhibition, isolation, stubbornness, and negativity; frequent change of emotions to the opposite; variability of mood; fixation on negative aspects of life and inability to live happy moments; unhealthy pessimism, anxiety, and fear. The stages of implementation of rehabilitation techniques and technologies for development of skills of emotions control in typical situations are defined.
