Abstract (English):
his article analyzes the results of psychological and pedagogical experiment on the formation of the image of the future in young adults. The study owes its relevance to age-related difficulties of personal self-determination in adolescents and to the complexity of the modern social situation of personality development. The research featured the formative influence on the image of the future in young adults in the context of psychological and pedagogical support. The research objective was to analyze the results and define the related problems. The theoretical part of the research modeled the image of the future. This model included personal-organizational, substantive, and behavioral components. The empirical stage of the research presupposed a stating and formative experiment, statistical data processing, and interpretation of the results. The characteristics of the personal-organizational and substantial components had a different degree of manifestation. The component structure of the image of the future proved to be underdeveloped in most participants. Similarly, most parameters of sense of life purpose appeared to be deficient. The formative influence significantly increased the deficit indicators in the experimental group. The psychological and pedagogical support improved the resource personal-organizational component. The content component showed less positive dynamics. The image of the future family revealed a great variability of ideas. Most difficulties in the formative influence were due to the weak inter-component and intra-component relationships of the image of the future. Another difficult matter was to take into account various factors affecting the formation of the image of the future, e.g. school, family environment, gender identity, etc. In general, the psychological and pedagogical support of the image of the future improved the personal development of the young adults. The results may be useful in the development of psychological and educational support programs aimed at self-realization and life choice.
