Psychological Safety of Children Left without Parental Care under the Conditions of Institutionalization or a Substitute Family 1559


Semya G.V.
Doctor of Psychology, Professor, Chair of Developmental Psychology named after L.F. Obukhova, Moscow State Pedagogical University, Moscow, Russia

The article analyzes the notion of psychological security of orphans and children left without parental care. The role of psychological security in the personality development of the child is shown. A concept of psychological safety of children left without parental care was developed by the author. In addition to the genotype prerequisites, this concept can be viewed as a parametric function of two groups of variables (the internal position of the child and the external conditions), which dynamically depends on space and time. This approach allows identifying four types of safety states characteristic for these children. The conditions for psychological safety formation in a child under institutionalization and in transfer to various forms of family set-up are outlined. The change of internal position content in a child in the orphanage from “nobody’s” to alienated position of a graduate “one against all” is shown. The phenomenon of elevated sensitivity to new social conditions of an orphan raised in the family was discovered that can assure a rapid rise in his/her development.
