On defect structure, diagnosing subjectivity and emotional well-being in the new issue of the Journal of "Cultural-Historical Psychology"


The new issue of the journal "Cultural-Historical Psychology" (No. 2, 2024) has been published. Although not thematic, this issue, like all of the current year's editions, marks the 100th anniversary of cultural-historical psychology.

In the section "Problems of Cultural-Historical and Activity Psychology," N.E. Veraksa's article explores how the interaction of a preschool child with culture shapes their developmental space. Additionally, T.E. Sizikova, S.V. Leonov, and I.S. Polikanova delve into the psychophysiological correlates of free action, interpreted through the lens of cultural-historical psychology.

In the section "Clinical Psychology," building on L.S. Vygotsky's ideas, A.M. Polyakov examines the psychological structure of defects as a basis for assisting children with developmental disorders. Meanwhile, A.D. Butashin and E.M. Ivanova investigate the psychological structure of corporeality beyond traditional psychosomatic concepts.

The "Psychology of Education" section features articles by O.I. Glazunov and M.M. Glebova on diagnosing subjectivity in student project groups. M.A. Yanishevskaya and I.M. Ulanovskaya question whether a full-fledged learning activity is possible without interaction and live educational cooperation among children.

The "Empirical Research" section includes research by T.O. Tsatsulin and A.B. Kholmogorova that addresses protective variables for university students' mental well-being, with a focus on overcoming toxic perfectionism. A.M. Dvoinin and A.S. Ivanova explore mental representations of heaven and hell among Orthodox believers, while V.N. Shlyapnikov identifies predictors of life meaningfulness among rural and urban Tuvinians.

The "History of Science" section honors G.I. Chelpanov, with key aspects of his work and scientific school analyzed by A.N. Zhdan, V.A. Mazilov, and N.A. Vlasov.

The "Commemorative Dates" section is rich and diverse, aiming to introduce readers to the history of science and the biographies of its creators on special occasions.

In 2024, we will mark two centuries of remarkable psychologists: Arthur Vladimirovich Petrovsky on May 14 and Galina Mikhailovna Andreeva on June 13. Both names are integral to the history of social psychology in our country, each contributing significantly to the science of human social and personal development.

A collection of materials, including photographs from the family archive, commemorates A.V. Petrovsky.  Highlights include an essay by his grandson, Clinical Professor I.V. Egorov, with unique biographical facts, and materials from the scientific conference "Petrovsky's Century: Psychology and Time', held in his honor at the K.D. Ushinsky Library of the Russian Academy of Education. Notably, the issue also publishes texts by Petrovsky himself.

T.Y. Bazarov presents the multifaceted legacy of G.M. Andreeva, emphasizing her scientific, leadership, and personal achievements.

Additionally, the issue celebrates the 80th anniversary of Viktor Ivanovich Slobodchikov with an insightful and heartfelt article by A.V. Shuvalov.

All articles in the issue are published in the Open Access on the Portal of psychological publications PsyJournals.ru
