Theoretical and Methodological Approaches to Investigations of Psyche’s Development

Professional Life: Synergetic Approach. Part 1

The article continues the series of works on the problem of career (professional life). We study the phenomenon of “professional life”, its historical evolution, difficulties of its full and adequate scientific explication, and the techniques of its study. We consider a number of aspects of the problem within the boundaries of the means and capabilities of the synergistic approach. The subject of our research is career (professional life, in particular) as a social, socio-psychological and psychological (subjective, personal) phenomenon.

Image of an Adolescent in Psychology: Specific Features of Age or Research?

The relevance of this study is conditioned by the need to solve the problems of studying Generation Z and the absence of a holistic, consistent image of adolescence in the psychological literature. We have put forward a hypothesis, according to which the reasons for ambiguous understanding of adolescence are connected with the techniques used. Accordingly, the purpose of the study presented in the article was to identify the causes of contradictions in the descriptions of adolescence features.

Subject Reality as a New Psychological Paradigm

The purpose of the study is to theoretically substantiate one of the possible ways for classical psychology to emerge from methodological crisis, relying on a fundamentally new paradigm that allows creating a holistic concept of psychology. It has been noted that over the last decades, a large number of scientists working in various scientific fields, while addressing the phenomenon of human existence, increasingly pose the following questions: what is reality, what reality does a person live in, is there an “ultimate reality” and how are all these concepts interrelated?

Forms of Economic Socialization of a Personality: Explanation of the Approach

We explain the development perspective of the approach to the study of forms of economic socialization of an individual, as well as analyze the interrelation between such concepts as the “stage of economic socialization” and “form of economic socialization”. Also, the article describes the interrelation of a form and content of economic socialization.

Professional Career: Linear-Stadial and Stadial-Procedural Approaches

The aim of the research presented in the article: historical and theoretical analysis of the scientific concepts of human development periodization (as a subject of activity, as a personality). The paper describes the phenomenon of “professional career”, the complexity of its full and adequate scientific explication and analyses the well-known concepts of human development periodization (S. Freud, P. P. Blonsky, L. S. Vygotsky, R. Kegan, J. Piaget, C. Buhler, E. Erikson) and the concepts of human development periodization as a subject of labour (D. Super, E. A. Klimov, V. A. Bodrov, Y. P.

Method of Studying Deviant Activity in the Real and Virtual Environment

Based on the works of Russian and foreign researchers in the field of the psychology of deviant behavior, definitions of the terms “real deviant activity” and “virtual deviant activity” have been specified. The article proposes a new toolset for the study of selected types of social activ- ity. The purpose of the study was to develop and validate the original method. The sample consisted of 260 students (checking internal consistency, split reliability, convergent validity n = 210, diachronic reliability n = 50). Psychometric toolkit contains 48 points and 4 scales.

Professional Career: Research, Results, Possible Prospects

The phenomenon of “professional career”, the complexity of its full and adequate scientific explication is considered. One of the ways to promote a constructive study of a career is an appeal to a set of complementary methodological approaches. The experience of the development of an integrative approach, including combinations of system-genetic, ecological (ecopsychological) and system triads approach, is proposed. It is shown that each of the methodological approaches has its limitations and possibilities.

Problems and Perspectives of the Study of Young People’s Social Activity

The purpose of the study presented in the article is to give a theoretical review of articles devoted to the problem of social activity and its types. The urgency of the study of social activity is conditioned by the need to study psychological mechanisms of formation, development and forms of its manifestation in young people under the changing conditions of the social environment. The article presents the main definitions of the notion of social activity from the interdisciplinary perspective.

Theoretical Prerequisites for the Study of Discriminatory Attitudes of the Personal in the Changing Society

The main purpose of the article is to present a theoretical review and analysis of modern Russian and foreign studies on the problem of discriminatory attitudes of an individual. The urgency of the study is determined by many factors and is due to scientific, theoretical and socio-psychological circumstances of the modern society. Discriminatory attitudes increase the intensity of local conflicts between dominant and discriminated groups.

Three Definitions and Three Approaches to Study of Collaboration: in the Social, Organizational and Pedagogical Psychology

The causes for the relatively small exploring of the phenomenon of collaboration in comparison with the conflict are considered. An alternative approach to collaboration in terms of post-non-classical psychology (correspondence, selectivity, reciprocity) is suggested. Critical analysis of daily and philosophical representations of collaboration is carried out. Based on the APA Dictionary of Psychology, three different working definitions of collaboration for social, organizational and pedagogical psychology are given.
