O. Melnichuk, D. Poddubnaya, N. Pypyak

Nowadays, in the rapid river of renewed requirements and up-to-date needs, social relations, characterized by their complexity, have also changed to a certain extent. Development in all areas of human activity is only one positive aspect of the XXI century, but on the other hand we also have a lot of inconsistencies. The latter includes the state of nature and its components, regulation of public relations at the level of regulatory legal acts, failure to give information to people and many other aspects that require further study, making changes and improvements. Much of these facts depend on the psychology of a person and their personality which influences and creates different human actions and awareness of responsibility for them. The above describes relevance and urgency of the scientific and theoretical research for further practical changes to ensure environmental balance by combining legal personality and legal consciousness through the perspective of psychology. All this is achieved by the goal of a theoretical and empirical research, namely the coverage of the results of a theoretical and empirical study of the interaction of psychology and environmental legal personality in the 21st century, as an immediate element in the preservation of the environment and its components, due to significant negative indicators of their conditions. Based on the use of theoretical and empirical methods, the results of the study for further discussion and immediate conclusions are determined. They consist of the introduction of groundworks in use from the field of ecological psychology, psychology of ecology, legal psychology for the implementationfor people of each age category and recognizing this direction as prerogative at the government level. For implementation, a psychologist must be appointed. Awareness of the population with the help of the media and prediction of the principle of psychological formation of the regulation of social relations in legal framework - these should be the steps towards theimplementation. Subjective actions should be directed as much as possible towards the fulfillment of the activities of evolutionary-volitional processes and states of a person, which is achieved by directly influencing human activity, skills, will, motives, feelings, emotions, stress, frustration, fear and aimed at shaping the social and biological parts in personality.
