A Part of Article

The fourth issue of the journal " Vestnik of St. Petersburg State University. Psychology " is represented by articles describing empirical and experimental research in the field of developmental psychology, medical and correctional psychology.
The issue opens with an article by N. S. Pavlova and E. A. Sergienko "Subjective quality of life, psychological well-being, attitude to the time perspective and age of pensioners leading different lifestyles". The increase in life expectancy, the active involvement of older people in various spheres of life makes the question of their quality of life and psychological well-being relevant. The analysis of the literature data and the authors ' own research suggest that the subjective indicators of the quality of life decrease with age, but the period is 64-75 years (people 58-93 years old participated in the study) it is characterized by higher indicators of quality of life, psychological well-being and the possession of a balanced time perspective. Among the factors most closely related to self-assessment of health, both physical and psychological, was psychological well-being. It is revealed that the time perspective of a person is more associated with the psychological component of health, while the subjective age is more associated with the physical one. At the same time, there is a specificity in the number and nature of connections, depending on age and lifestyle (non-working pensioners who are on home-based social services, and non-working pensioners who lead an active lifestyle).
