The development of Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a very important issue in modern psychology. Most of training procedures which have the goal of EI development are composed as a sequence of training sessions in a real conditions of communication of people in real groups. This format of work has its own advantages. There is one but large disadvantage of such kinds of groups - for some people it makes difficult to share his/her own problems in public. IT-technologies, or IT program provides opportunity to escape this barrier and train self-awareness or other parts of EI in private. Advantages and disadvantages of some Russian IT-programs are discussed. Most of them follow P.Ekman idea on emotion recognition. The novelty of a new IT-technology, which is being developed by our project team, consists of using reframing on the base of metaphors, images, fiction etc. as the program database.
