The article is planned to present a theoretical and empirical analysis of the mental and adaptive features of the content of styles of overcoming the restrictive conditions of quarantine by students. Theoretical substantiation of the specifics of coping behavior in quarantine conditions includes an analysis of its structural and functional purpose and typological characteristics. The restrictive conditions of quarantine are presented in the features of the field of functional deprivation, which determine the content of coping strategies of the subjects of self-isolation. The purpose of the presented material is a theoretical and empirical study of mental and adaptive features of the strategies’ content for overcoming of the students, who were in the restrictive conditions of quarantine and substantiation of signs of their constructive socialization. Based on the analysis and theoretical generalization of the problem, a program of interviewing students, who were in isolation on account of the pandemic COVID-19, which includes testing methods and a set of methods for mathematical processing of results. The scheme of mental-adaptive manifestation of coping strategies has been worked out; a diagnostic section of empirical data on a sample of students (n =214) and the complexes of mental-adaptive content of overcoming the stressful situation of self-isolation among students (mental-adaptive dominance; mental-adaptive autonomy and mental-adaptive rationality) have been empirically explicated. An empirical model of psychological markers of mental-adaptive content of the coping strategies’ manifestation among students has been proposed.
