The problem of personal crisis in an individual's life is frequently becoming the subject of research by contemporary psychologists. The paper presents the result of an empirical study of socio-psychological personality indicators that contribute to overcoming a psychological crisis. A theoretical and methodological analysis of the problem of a person’s experiencing a psychological crisis in domestic and foreign literature has been conducted. It has been proved that the sphere of values and meaning is the main construct in building new adaptive patterns of behavior in difficult life situations and has an influence on the choice of constructive or destructive forms of behavior to overcome the crisis. The values and meanings of the individual in the situation of a psychological crisis, on the one hand, are the trigger for choosing destructive forms of behavior, contributing to the choice of the act of auto-aggression as a way out of the crisis.
