Systemic Aspects of Development: Personality, Group. Psychology of Person-Environment Interaction

Basic Division: Department of Psychology of Development
 
Brief Description of Research Activities
The trend is deals with study of systemic developmental aspects of the personality and the group, specificity of the person’s cognition of himself and individuality of other people, laws of cognition of individuality in terms of gender, age and occupation and specificity of cognition of unknown others and the individuality of “relevant others”.
 
In the context of the person-environment interaction is explored the image of Perm and geographical, social, cultural, architectural, historical and informational features of the native citizens and cultural aliens (foreigners). The specificity of psychological representation of Perm’s urban environment is investigated in terms of the respondents’ age and gender and the time of their stay in the city. Urban environment is defined as a combination of man-made living conditions (roads, pavements, buildings, sanitary infrastructure etc.), natural and socio-economic environment elements. The reconstruction and structure of reconstruction of visual-image and verbal content of psychological representation of Perm’s urban environment is studied in the programme. The image of Perm is researched on the basis of the data got from people of Perm’s twin-cities (Oxford and Louisville).
