At the formative stage, training was conducted with two groups of adolescents, each of which included 15 participants. At the control stage, the differences between the indicators of loneliness experienced by adolescents, the level of satisfaction with certain aspects of school life, the level of vitality, self-esteem and the level of development of emotional abilities before and after the study participants were tested.
