The Problem of Intervention in the Situation of Personality Crisis: from Theory to Practice 2178


Ovchinnikova Yu.G.
PhD in Psychology, Associate Professor, Department of General and Experimental Psychology, Faculty of Psychology, State University — Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia

The understanding of the personality crisis as an internal resource for self-development is reasoned. A comparative analysis of personality crisis, crisis situation and features of psychological assistance was performed. A model of psychological support in the short-term counseling is proposed that facilitates the constructive resolution to the personality crisis. The question of psychological sense of the crisis becomes the basis for intervention. The importance of the phenomenological method as a basis for counseling is underlined and the concepts of intervention and understanding psychology are compared.

Keywords: personality crisis, constructive role of the crisis, critical situation, crisis intervention, psychological support

Column: Psychological Practice
