The article highlights the results of an experimental study of the peculiarities of the corporeality formation in young women in the process of developing relationships with parents. The paper shows that at present the problems of content and types of physical experience in women of different age categories, criteria and levels of its formation remain undeveloped. The experimental study was based on the principles of an integrated approach using theoretical and analytical (analysis, generalization, systematization), empirical methods (clinical interview, standardized psychodiagnostic methods) and methods of mathematical statistics (calculation of elementary statistics, graphical representation of data). It has been empirically proven that at a young age, women have more problems finding meaning in life, adequate choices between family and profession, which can increase self-doubt, intimate, personal and interpersonal disorders that exacerbate behavioral deviations and mental disorders. It has been established that the solution of these problems for young women in the context of the specifics of the corporality formation under the influence of developing child-parent relations is of particular importance. Insufficient level of self-reflection of bodily potential has been found in women from 18 to 42 years of age. It has been shown that the peculiarities of the corporality formation in young women in the process of developing relationships with parents should include: guidelines for the physical connection of mother and child; guidelines related to psychological contact with the father; guidelines related to family relations to the child as a person of a certain sex; acceptance (or rejection) by a woman of her body as a component of the whole organism; satisfaction with the woman’s relationship with her parents, the authority of the parents, the child’s emotional closeness to the parents, control over the child and the adoption of the child by the parents; ability to evaluate and correlate their bodily characteristics (internality – externality of bodily locus of control) with social requirements; ability to selfreflection of one’s own corporeality, anticipation of its consequences. In the future it is necessary to develop and study the typology of corporality in young women in the process of developing of child-parent relationship.
