Abstract
The article presents the results of an empirical study that looks into correlations between the person's behavioral self-regulation styles and the level of their stress resistance. The research demonstrates that the amount to which the self-regulation system components are formed may indicate the ability of foster parents to overcome social stress factors and various difficult situations taking place in foster families. Specific traits of foster parents' self-regulation styles in comparison to that of ordinary parents were discovered. The differences between individual self-regulation styles in foster parents and paramedics — both groups belonging to socionomic aid specialists — were examined. "The Social Readjustment Rating Scale" by T.H Holmes and R.H. Rahe was used to measure the level of stress. Specific traits of different self-regulation styles were examined with the help of V.I. Morosanova’s “Behavior self-regulation style” method. The research was supported by The Russian Foundation for Humanities, project 15-06-10508а.

Keywords: professional foster family, orphan children, “foster parent” role, stress, stress resistance, psychological resources, self-regulation, individual self-regulation style components
