Abstract

This article raises the problem of professional destructions of the penitentiary system employees. The hypothesis of the study is as follows: in the course of professional activity the employees of security departments of penitentiary system show professionally conditioned destruction. Study sample consisted of 60 men aged 18 to 40 years, the staff of the penal system (Security Division). The main methods were psychodiagnostic (test method) and statistical (mathematical analysis). Analysis of the results led to the conclusion about the impact of the conditions of professional activity on the employee personality, namely the development of professionally caused accentuation of the alarm type in the initial stages of service and professional activities (p = 0.005), as well as the development of professionally caused pedantic (p = 0.000), dysthymic (p = 0.002), stuck (p = 0.005) accentuation types. Thus, this study led to the conclusion that, indeed, depending on the length of service and professional activities of the employees of the penitentiary system professional-mediated degradation occurs.
