Analysis of the role of reflection in overcoming negative experiences and reducing anxiety in a stressful situation showed the presence of two diametrically opposed assessments: positive and negative. The aim of the study іs to determine the psychological signs of sanogenic potential of students’ reflexive processes to overcome stressful situations. The study was conducted in the 2020–2021 academic year on the basis of Poltava V. G. Korolenko National Pedagogical University. The sample comprised 110 students (40 male and 70 female). The age of participants was 18–19 years. The research methods were as follows: theoretical, empirical and methods of statistical data processing. The results of the correlation analysis showed positive statistically significant relationships between personal reflection and coping. It was found that students with a medium level of self-reflection often show a strategy of positive reappraisal (r = 0.267; p < 0.05), students with a low level – the seeking social support (r = 0, 273; p < 0.05). Correlation rates between social reflection and coping processes were statistically insignificant. It is established that the sanogenic potential has a pattern of reflex processes with the presence of self-reflection with indicators of average level of its development. Disclosure of the sanogenic resource of reflection is possible with the help of positive psychotherapy technology, which is aimed at actualizing self-distancing and the work of students with their own experience.
