Aron I.S.
PhD in Psychology, Yoshkar-Ola, Russia

We present the results of investigation of the motivational component of psychological readiness for professional self-determination in adolescents in specific social situations of development. It was assumed that in a particular deficit social situation of development under the influence of negative social context the formation of motivational readiness for professional self-determination is hindered. We revealed significant differences in the level of development of motivational readiness for professional self-determination of pupils of the school for children with behavioral problems, pupils of boarding school for orphans and pupils of regular secondary school. It is shown that the motivational sphere of adolescents with deviant behavior and adolescents without parental care is characterized by focus on the failure avoidance, predominance of external motives of choice of profession, lack of awareness of their values and motives. The obtained results can serve as a basis for the development of technologies of psychological and pedagogical support of professional self-determination of teenagers with consideration of their age and development and of the individual characteristics due to the aggravation of social situation of development.
