Four levels of readiness for mastering the emotional self-regulation skills were identified and described. All of them were determined by the following components: motivation for emotional self-regulation, emotional consciousness, emotional competence, effectiveness of emotional self-regulation skills.
The correlations were determined between young people’s readiness for mastering the skills of emotional self-regulation and such personal characteristics as: reflexivity, emotional competence and emotional self-awareness. The young people’s awareness of the need for emotional self-regulation and knowledge about them, their emotional sphere and formed reflexivity are essential prerequisites to form such personal characteristics as emotional consciousness, emotional competence, emotional stability and emotional maturity.
The article determines that personal motivation for self-development and emotional-volitional control influence positively on the emotional self-regulation skills.

Many young people are agreed that the need to master the skills of emotional self-regulation and recognize the negative impact of uncontrolled emotions on their own lives, but do not apply this need in real life situations.
