The article covers findings of the study of features of consciousness of the responsibility phenomenon by the future psychologists and social workers, motives for one’s responsible behavior, types of responsibility and the most significant areas for its implementation. A departure position of the study involves understanding of responsibility as a basic worldview quality of personality, which a result of the integration of his subjective vision of the world and social interaction, self- awareness in this world and realizing oneself as a creator of one’s own behavior manifesting in various systems of life. It is established that the understanding of responsibility as an individual’s ability to predict consequences of actions and awareness of their significance, conscious acceptance and fulfillment of responsibilities, ability to adhere to rules and finish the job is dominant among first-year students. They mainly associate responsibility with volitional and leadership characteristics of an individual, the ability to think critically. A much smaller part of them associates responsibility with morality, internal needs, conscience and spiritual development of personality. The authors state the future psychologists have more pronounced motives for self- actualization, self-knowledge and pragmatic motives, and future social workers – motives for communication and moral self-esteem. The self-self-system that focuses on the responsibility as self-actualization, self-cognition and pragmatic orientation is the most important field for the future psychologists, the Self-Others interaction system as a way of their fulfilment in the future professional activity – for social workers. The above is caused by the age and socio-psychological characteristics of first-year students in general and the specifics of personal characteristics of applicants, who choose the profession of psychologist or social worker, as well as by the peculiarities of their training in higher education institutions. The findings necessitate the formation of students’ worldview focuses on the awareness of the spiritual dimension of their own lives and the development of spiritual values as the basic regulators of their behavior.
