Psychological Factors of Injury-Risk Behavior in Children

403

Abstract

The article presents data on the study of factors that contribute to the occurrence of repeated physical injuries in children aged 5—10 years. A model of risk factors for repeated injuries in children is proposed, which can be used in practice not only by a doctor, but also by a psychologist. We studied individual psychological characteristics of children, features of the social situation of the child’s development. It was found that a specific combination of these factors can actually cause repeated physical injuries in the child. In particular, the special role of conditions in the family was revealed, as well as the essential need to distinguish between true and false hyperactivity in children. It is shown that each individual child in the case of injury needs a person whose competence will help in preventive treatment of repeated injuries. The degree of responsibility of the person should be determined. The possibilities of a psychologist-consultant for the prognosis of risk factors and prospects for consultations are discussed.
