Relevancy of the research is in studying person's ability to cope with life's challenges and choice of strategy to cope with them or prevent associated emotional disorders. The aim of the study is to identify the connection between the choice of coping strategies in difficult circumstances and person's creativity. The research results demonstrate a highly positive correlation between the level of creativity and the predominant choice of transformative strategy of coping with a difficult life situation (r = 0,582). At the same time there is a highly negative correlation between the level of creativity and choice of self-destructive coping strategies (r = -0,486). The correlation between the level of creativity and choice of adaptive coping strategies is virtually absent (r = -0,086). Consequently the choice of adaptive coping strategies with difficult circumstances does not depend on creativity. Training for creativity development was conducted in order to provide psychological support.
