The study was designed to rate and analyze the socio-psychological security of sporting students with health impairments. Sampled for the study were the 18-20 year old sporting students of Russian State Social University diagnosed with health impairments (n=19) who were tested by the following methods: N.P. Fetiskin, V.V. Kozlov and G.M. Manuylov Conflict Tolerance Express Test; N.P. Fetiskin, V.V. Kozlov and G.M. Manuylov Personality Egocentrism Test; I.D. Ladanov, V.A. Urazaeva Interpersonal Communication Motivations Test; and the V.V. Boyko Integral Communicative Aggression Typing Test. We made a factorial analysis of the empirical test data and analyzed the relevant theoretical and practical studies and findings to find that socio-psychological security of disabled people is determined by the conflict tolerance, communication abilities, low aggression and low egocentrism test rates. Furthermore, our tests rated 30% of the sample with low conflict tolerance; 20% with destructive communication patterns; and 40% with high personality egocentrism and uncontrolled aggression. The study data and analysis showed the need for psychological support service to the disabled athletes in the training and competitive process for their socio-psychological security, with the service geared to develop the relevant socializing skills, mental control and cognitive abilities to develop due social comfort for success.

Keywords: socio-psychological security, communication, conflict tolerance, sporting students, disabled athletes.
