The issue of the constructive human behaviour in the conditions of threatening natural and social challenges, in particular in emergencies, was actualized. As an example, the psychological features of constructive behaviour of elderly people as real and potential subjects of stable social development (objective guarantors of internal and external state stability through the use of meaningful individual experience) were considered. On the basis of the author's pilot research the theoretical and practical aspects of the problem was developed (constructive behaviour as the acquired form of individual psychological protection). Its solution involves forming the evidence base on the high “capacity to maintain quality of life” at old age at the level of the previous age periods, and, as a consequence, the rejection of common negative stereotypes about its capabilities (physical, intellectual, volitional, etc.). The primary (emotional regulation) and secondary conditions (volitional regulation) of constructive behavior were determined. The cognitive priorities of the system of adapting to new life activities were established (in this context some conceptual scientific ideas of the well-known researchers were analyzed). It was shown that the emotional and volitional self-regulation have clear structured semantic manifestations. Their basic meaning begins in childhood in the first age stages of human life. The project of the personal typology of the emotional self-regulation of elderly people was developed that allows to differentiate and improve the manifestations of the constructive behaviour. Emphasis was placed on the need to develop evidence-based diagnostic tools to study forming the emotional and volitional self-regulation of elderly people to identify, shape and predict their constructive behaviour in emergencies with the prospect of maintaining and strengthening their physical and mental health).
