The authors define axiological choice as a touch point between the culture senses and the student’s senses. This touch enables to transform students’ sense predilection. However, according to the multiple nature and character of choice, the latter has a negative side, which is sacrificing one alternative in favor of some other one. Hence it makes sense to apply the positive psychology concept in modelling students’ axiological choice situations. Positive psychology technologies and strategies lend “positive” support in decision making, as well as give a spirit of optimism and confidence in learning activities. This generally facilitates creative abilities and unleashes the personal potential. The article describes the role played by both positive and negative emotions. High concentration of negative emotions erects a communication and sense barrier disturbing sense transaction in learning activities, thus hindering conditions for its development. Defined are positive psychotherapy techniques aimed at the solution of an inner conflict in choice, these techniques are: distancing from the conflict, consideration of the conflict, situational approval, verbalization, enhancement of life goals. The above techniques possess a significant sense potential within the training process in modelling students’ axiological choice situations.
