The aim of the research study is to introduce partial results from a study of counterfactual thinking and changes in the personality dimensions of female university students before and after participating in a socio-psychological training (SPT) course that focused on constructive solutions and coping with real load situations. After the SPT, statistically lower neuroticism (N), significantly higher extraversion (E) and statistically significant difference in sub-dimension happiness in meaningfulness (ME) were shown. After completing the training, participants usually understand problems as a challenge, enjoy possibilities and their own initiative more appreciate creative problem solving, see a possibility to influence the course of action and want to create mutual cooperation. SPT revealed the functionality and correctness of counterfactual thinking.
