Abstract. The main goal of this study was to explore the possibilities of Positive psychotherapy in the formation of hardiness and to delve deeper into the relationship between hardiness and actual capabilities of the person. Data were collected from 380 people from Ukraine, aged between 19 and 62. The respondents completed the Wiesbaden Inventory for Positive Psychotherapy and Family Therapy (WIPPF 2.0), which was developed by N. Peseschkian in collaboration with H. Deidenbach and the Maddi Hardiness Scale. We used Pearson’s correlation coefficient to measure the statistical relationship between hardiness and personal capabilities. Also, we used regression analysis to determine the prognostic indicators for hardiness. As a result of our research, we found that the capabilities of contact, trust, hope, love, achievement, and reliability have the greatest influence on hardiness
