The article deals with the relationship between self-trust and endurance in the context of psychologists' training. Having analyzed the relevant scientific literature, the author defines the concepts of vitality and endurance. Self-trust is a certain hypothetical construct that allows an individual to take a certain value position on himself/herself and the world and, based on this position, to build their own life strategy. Vitality and endurance provide an individual with internal psychological security, which determines his/her normative activity. Vitality, which implies resistance to complex external influences, develops over the course of a person's life. Endurance is understood as a specific trait of a person, which improves his/her performance, success, adaptation, and stress resistance. Studying for a university degree in psychology, which is characterized with academic and informational overload, is a kind of the so-called "extreme conditions" in which students should develop their self-trust and confidence in their own powers to become self-actualized professionals. In previous research, the author has identified the most important intrinsic personal correlates of future psychologists' self-trust: self-efficacy, persistence, locus of control, adaptation, overcoming, and spirituality. Future psychologists' self-trust, which develops during a university course, is impossible without their full involvement in the educational process and their willingness to study without a guaranteed future success, sometimes at their own risk. In this context, the author has supplemented the internal personal resources needed for the development of future psychologists' self-trust during a university course with the following key components of personal endurance: inclusion, control and risk taking.
