Resocialization of persons in a situation of illness determines one of the most important tasks of a health care system, namely, restoration of social opportunities of a patient. Objective: psychological analysis of identity system transformation of identifcations in a situation of a severe physical disease. Material and Methods. The study included a random sample of men and women aged 18–65: patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD) (n=116), and the control group (n=181). The following methods have been used: questionnaire, personal self-conception survey by S. R. Panteleev; R. Lazarus» study coping strategies; «Life style index»; family environment scale (FES) adapted by S. Y. Kupriyanov; WHO Quality of Life Questionnaire (WHOQOL); M. Kuhn»s test «Who am I?»; J. Rotter»s subjective control level test questionnaire; V. N. Dovlatova»s questionnaire for identifying cognitive inclination to dependency. Results. Signifcant diferences (p=0.01) in expression of identity indicators were obtained, which allowed to identify features of identifcation system characteristic of patients with ischemic heart disease without disability and with disability. Diferences in identifcation predictors with social roles, physical characteristics, negative self-identifcation and total number of self-descriptions were identifed using the regression analysis data. Conclusion. Change of personality of a patient with ischemic heart disease can be interpreted as othering and leads to difculties in social interactions and loss of opportunity to rely on their own personality, which requires psychotherapy. Socialization as a basic characteristic of modern society defnes one of the most important tasks of medical and social assistance to the population, namely, the restoration of the social capabilities of the patient. An analysis of the internal picture of the disease in patients with chronic somatic diseases in a social context makes it possible to determine the tasks of re-socialization in a situation of disability.
