Самообладание: новое или хорошо забытое старое слово в психологии?

The paper refl ects on the concept of self-possession and its historical development in psychology. It regards self-possession as a «well-forgotten old» concept based on three well-known facts: fi rst, that selfpossession constitutes a «middle ground» between many psychological phenomena, second, self-possession emerges as a tool for and purpose within the personal development of children and adults, and last, selfpossession has evident psychotherapeutic potential.
