The paper sets out an understanding of self-image and subjective feeling of emotional well-being which is associated with the existential direction of the study. Under the subjective experience of emotional well-being the authors imply the following factors: conscious acceptance of all emotions, including unpleasant and painful; considerate handling of one’s own emotions that takes into account one’s own subjectivity and openness to the living space in contact with the other. From the authors’ point of view, the image of I includes a system of conscious (to a greater or lesser degree) ideas about oneself, one’s abilities, social intentions related to self-esteem. This image also includes physical, intellectual, emotional, social and other personal properties that provide the validity in behavioral patterns of a certain relationship of the person to him-/herself and to others. The paper describes the results of the drawing test “Silver” for teenagers of 14–15 years of age brought up in diff erent socio-psychological conditions, namely, the presence or absence of the family, educational environment (school, rehabilitation centre, orphanage). The authors have carried out a comparative analysis of average values, a qualitative analysis of drawings and stories attached to them. As a result, the three groups of adolescents have been distinguished, provisionally titled as follows: emotionally positive, emotionally ambivalent, and emotionally disfunctional. The conducted study allows us to identify in each of the above-mentioned groups distinctive features as to the relationship between the self-image and subjective feeling of emotional well-being of adolescents that have varying levels of individual experience, education and upbringing. The paper also identifi es necessary conditions for the development of an integrated self-image for teenagers.
