Abstract

The transformation of the Russian society in the recent decades led to a change in the system of values, needs and behavior of young people. In the context of a serious crisis of moral attitudes, the intensification of the global trend towards the aggravation of ethnocultural contradictions, worsening of the demographic situation in Russia, the problems of studying cross-cultural characteristics of coping strategies among young men and women acquires prime priority. Knowledge and consideration of age and ethnopsychological factors affecting students’ coping strategies are of great importance for interethnic interaction in society. The article describes and analyzes an empirical study of cross-cultural characteristics of coping strategies among young men and women of Russian and Ossetian ethnic groups. The study sample included 216 people aged 18 to 23 years (average age 21.5) living in the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania. The obtained results contribute to the enrichment of scientific ideas related to the influence of cross-cultural, gender, and age factors on the process of forming coping strategies among students. The data obtained can be used as basic principles in the organization of socio-psychological services in multicultural regions, as well as in the development of training programs in stress psychology, personality psychology, ethnic psychology, age psychology, and developmental psychology.
