In the study methods to identify the main components of parents' psychological readiness for raising children in a substitute family were used. The survey was carried out during the study of the cognitive component. The emotional-volitional component is disclosed by using an MMPI questionnaire (abridged version) and techniques for determining the accentuation of personality traits (Leonhard K.). The analysis of the motivational-evaluative component has been conducted using a morphological test of life values (Sopov V.F., Karpushina L.V.). Indicators of the activity component are fixed by two methods--PARI (Schäfer E.S., Bell R.K.) and the analysis of family relationships (Eidemiller E.G., Yustitskis V.V.). The significance of the results obtained has been checked by mathematical statistical methods (factor analysis and statistical criterion for difference -- Student's t-test). In the experimental group statistically significant differences that confirm a positive impact of the research-experimental program on the level of formation of parents' psychological readiness for raising children in a substitute family have been indicated.
