The Topography of the Subject Field of Christian Psychology 797


Vasilyuk F.E.
Doctor of Psychology, Professor of the Chair of Individual and Group Psychotherapy, Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, Moscow, Russia

The task of constitutionalization of Christian psychology as a specific discipline pre- sumes methodological enumeration of its population: scientific, educational and practice-oriented projects. Current article presents a tryout of a tool, that allows to to- pographically link each project to certain coordinates on a map of Christian psychology subject field. Analyses revealed uncommon qualities of such a map. The main of these qualities is a topological plasticity, a capacity to adaptively change the metric of zones and fields in order to insert specific project unaltered. Such a procedure allows to describe an individual “methodological profile” of a project. The technology of analyses tested in current work opens up an opportunity for methodological arrange- ment of the subject-thematical field of Christian psychology, which is a necessary condition for its constitutionalization and entering a “critical” phase of its development.

Keywords: Christian psychology, map of subject field, an individual methodological profile of a project, passion, soul, psyche

Column: Christian psychology and psychotherapy
