The article analyzes the works of domestic and foreign authors on the problem of family values in adolescence and describes the attempt to make a research on psychological features of different ethnic groups’ representatives with different cultural modes. It contains theoretical and empirical analysis of psychological features of different ethnic groups’ representatives with different social modes on the example of representatives of Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar ethnic groups. The problem of social psychological research of processes of development of integrity of personality is examined in the conditions of modern society. On the basis of assumption about the presence of types of socialization corresponding to the different cultural modes there are described the types of integrity of personality - traditional, modern, postmodern. The creation of psychological portraits of representatives of individual ethnic groups with different social styles allowed to study the above issues in more detail, and the novelty of this study would be an impetus for further in-depth scientific elaboration of this topic. Life within a certain cultural mode in an ethnic group influences the psychological well-being of ethnic representatives. Thus, the purpose of the article was to portrait the psychological characteristics of the representatives of the studied ethnic groups. The portraits were composed on the basis of socio-cultural components of psychological well-being. The aforementioned study was conducted among 70 young men aged from 18 to 25 years who belonged to Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar ethnic groups (35 people from each group respectively). The study used the next mentioned instruments: Questionnaire “Development of the whole personality in the conditions of modern changes” (Vlasova O.I., Shcherbina V.S.); Riff Psychological Well-Being Scale Technique. The results obtained allowed us to establish a typical distribution of the prevalence of known cultural modes among young men - Ukrainians and Crimean Tatars.
