Elfimova M.M. - Developing Voluntary Meaning-Making in a Narrative Training pp. 71-78


Abstract: The subject of the research is the development of the voluntary meaning-making process that is understood as the mastering of a reflective action that is committed by an individual to put in order the objects of the real and ideal worlds. Mastering of a reflective action is the process of learning the action using certain psychological tools. In the course of a psychological training the narrative form of reflection is interiorised. As a result, an individual makes sense of his or her life events. The content of a narrative training is a narrative inquiry as a specific psychotherapeutic technique and means of developing voluntary meaning-making that allows an individual to define and make sense of certain episodes from one's own life, to structure fragmented experience and to take up his or her own attitude to life, thus assuring voluntariness towards their own meanings. To fulfil these tasks, the author has used a set of research methods including general-theoretical (theoretical analysis, comparative analysis, generalization), general-psychological (teaching experiment), and statistical (Mann–Whitney U test, Wilcoxon signed-rank test and interval scale). The research is based on the cultural historical concept that views the process of voluntary meaning-making as a social phenomenon with a mediated structure and voluntary performance. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author views narrative as a psychological tool for constructing the meaning-making aspect of personality. After testing the program of the narrative training in the control group according to certain parameters (biographical reflection, life modus, reflexivity, and general life sense indicator) the researcher has not discovered statistically significant differences while the experimental group indicators have demonstrated statistically significant differences, thus the program of the narrative training aimed at developing voluntary meaning-making proves to be efficient. 
Rudakova E.N. - Psychological Diagnosis of Prevailing Activity Motivation of Modern Teachers pp. 71-77


Abstract: The author analyzes the process of diagnosis of procedural personality motivation (paratelic as defined by M. Apter in 1987) and resulting activity motivation (telic). The analysis of prevailing motivation is of great importance considering that motivation structure is the leading activity determinant and there is a certain need in getting a better insight into personal motivation of modern teachers as representatives of the socionomic type profession. Russian and foreign psychologists do not only analyze psychological orientation on the process or result but also admit that there are intermediate states and their reverse nature. To define capabilities of O. Potemkina's test of psychosocial personality attitudes and motivation inventory and I. Kokurina's Dictionary Test that defines prevailing  motivation, the author of the article carried out research that involved 164 school teachers with different work experience record who lived and worked in the Republic of Buryatia. As a result of the research, the author discovers correlation of related indicators of motivation and activity process (at the level of r=0.138 at ≤0.1). Procedural and resulting motivation coincided in 46% of cases. The author assumes that the difference in evaluation of activity motivation is conditioned by specific features of Dictionary Test and concludes that each test has great capacities and can be efficiently used to measure resulting and procedural motivation. These tests can be used both individually and collectively to study motivation and behavior modern teachers. The researcher also suggests that contradictions discovered can be eliminated by carrying out Cattel's test as an additional test method allowing to analyze personal inclinations and traits. 
Kapustina T.V. - Psychodiagnostic Express Methosd in Psychological Counseling pp. 76-85


Abstract: The object of the study are psychodiagnostic express methods. The subject of the study is the classification of express methods used in psychological counseling. The author examines the express methods that are proposed by the creators as methods for starting express diagnostics. Emphasis is placed on the relevance of its use in psychological counseling in solving various practical problems, since it allows one to determine the personality traits or manifestations of the psyche necessary for the psychologist with minimal time expenditure. Special attention is paid to methods that are based on a typological approach to the assessment of personality, since they simplify the work to a greater extent due to the correlation of the client with a certain type of personality. To solve the problems posed in the article, theoretical methods are used such as analysis, systematization and classification of psychodiagnostic express methods. The main conclusions of the theoretical study is the conclusion that it is the projective express methods based on the typological approach that will be most effective in the practical work of the consulting psychologist, since they are the most “safe” and interesting for the client, since he or she mostly works with a weakly structured stimulus material when being diagnosed. The novelty of the research is caused by the fact that the author offers her own classification of psychodiagnostic rapid methods. Also, the main contribution of the author to the development of the theme is the presentation of the author's projective methodology 12 Archetypes Plus Personality Inventory, as one of the express methods applicable in psychological counseling.
Martyanova G.Y., Ilina A.A. - Potentials of Art Therapy in Psychological Assistance of a Preschooler pp. 94-118


Abstract: Art therapy is one of the most famous methods of psychological assistance of children. However, in practical work art therapy is often applied without considering age specific reactions of child's mind. The authors of the present article demonstrate what healing mechanisms of art therapy make it efficient for senior preschoolers. Efficiency of art therapy is assessed compared to the efficiency of play therapy as the priority method for children from three to seven years old due to the fact that play is the leading activity of that age. Comparison of these two psychological approaches is conducted based on the analysis of their process and results. The results of the research prove art therapy to be a useful method of psychological assistance of a preschooler due to the fact that preschoolers have a low level of reflection and verbal activity. The author also discover that the symbolic meaning of art is asociated with the process of developing the sign-symbolic function of child's mind, first of all, through establishing the mechanism of modeling. The authors also prove that as a practical activity, art therapy satisfies all the main principles of psychological assistance of children. The main hypothesis about art therapy being an efficient method of psychological assistance of preschoolers is proved by the resuts of empirical researches. 
Gorbov E.A. - Psychological Conditions for Improving the Function of Control in Management Activity pp. 130-146


Abstract: The subject of the research is the control in management activity. At organisations psychological conditions necessary to perform the function of control are very important because the place of control in the overall structure of a chief's activity and his or her selection of particular parameters of control and forms of control are conditioned by a wide range of individual psychological and personality traits as well as specific features of social and psychological climate at an organisation. The purpose of the research is to analyze particularities of the process of performing control at an organisation and to develop preventive measures aimed at improving it. The author of the article has developed a set of diagnostic tools to analyze one's attitude to control and particularities of performing control functions. Preventive measures offered by the author including seminars, individual sessions, preparation and distribution of information resources proved to be efficient. The results of the final testing prove that empoloyees have become more aware of the essence of control at an organisation, have changed their attitude to control and started to understand that it is necessary. Their anxiety levels have been reduced, too, while the level of a chief's competence has been raised. He has become more aware of the function performed by control, forms of control, goals and psychological conditions that contribute to improving the function of control. Putting their knowledge to life, chiefs have noticed that their employees start to behave less anxiously. Combined with the general results of tests, this may demonstrate that chiefs have started to avoid the system of total control which has reduced their employees' anxiety.

Abstract: The main object of research the trance technicians used in psychotherapy. Modern hypnotherapy incorporates the various experience of personal change developed not only in the field of medicine and psychology, but also in various spiritual practicians (yoga, Zen Buddhism, Taoist practicians).

High, in comparison with other psychotechnicians, efficiency and specifics of work with hypnotic technicians impose additional ethical responsibility on the therapist, in particular, for observance of the principle of the informed consent. The used methodology – the comparative analysis of psychotherapeutic methods of work with the personality and spiritual the practician on the basis of personal experience of self-modification and supervision over clients in the course of psychological consultation. Scientific novelty of approach consists in search of the general principles in such so unlike systems as psychoanalysis, hypnotherapy and an expert zen. The aspiration to understand, interpret the symbols and signs offered unconscious, and the most important – close attention to the processes proceeding in unconscious in fact is inherent in both psychoanalysis, and Zen Buddhism, and this new knowledge promotes expansion of opportunities of hypnotherapy and enrichment of vision of human nature and ways of its healing.
