Development of Russian version of the contingencies of self-worth scale
The paper presents the results of the phenomenological study of the dependence in close interpersonal relationship between a man and a woman. Phenomenological analysis of interviews of respondents experiencing their close interpersonal relationships as dependent, conducted by the technique of A. Giorgi, allowed to propose a structural model of this phenomenon, highlighting the invariant and variable components of dependence in a relationship. A special attention to the vicious circle “closeness – estrangement” specific to dependent relationships is given in the paper. It is shown that differentiation of interpersonal dependence is based on the type of the deficiency that is characterized by the specific need of compensation by the partner from whom one depends. This deficiency corresponds to the content of the fundamental existential motivations, allocated by A. Laengle: lack in support, lack of experience of life, lack in self-acceptance and self-esteem. Frustration of fundamental existential motivation for the meaning was present in all cases of dependence.
The paper devoted to the analysis of the experience of developing the Russian language version of the questionnaire for the diagnostics of psychological capital and its scales: self-efficacy, optimism, hope, resilience. The phenomena of psychological capital is from organizational psychology field.
This article concerns with the problem of parent-child relationship and its consequences for the emotional and personal well-being of a preschooler. Modern family undergo a crisis, characterized by a decrease of adult responsibility for the full personal development of a child. However, it is the psychological climate and especially the peculiarities of family relationships play in this process a decisive role. Preschool is an important period in the formation of the child's personality, determining its future development prospects. We made research with its primary goal as the interrelation of parental functional roles, as well as the interrelation of the types of parental relationship with self-esteem and anxiety of an older preschooler. According to the results we can say that the parental relationship and functional parental roles as the elements of parent-child relationship structure have a significant impact on the emotional and personal well-being of a preschooler. © 2013 The Authors.

Normative and nonnormative collective actions are the consequence of differences in estimation of political situation. The article regards the predictors in selection of normative (participation in meetings, signing petitions, etc.) vs. nonnormative (strike, violent actions, etc.) forms of protest behavior (perception of unfairness, self-efficacy, social identity, ideas of out-group). The carried out analysis showed that high self-efficacy, idea of out-group members as equal participants of interaction and experiencing of emotion of anger lead to the choice of various normative protest behavior. Low self-efficacy, steady social identity (including politicized identity), experiencing the emotion of contempt to out-group members often lead to choice of nonnormative forms. In conclusion the article regards the link of various predictors with the choice of individual and group forms of protest and analyzes the possible directions for further empirical studies.
The distractive effects on attentional task performance in different paradigms are analyzed in this paper. I demonstrate how distractors may negatively affect (interference effect), positively (redundancy effect) or neutrally (null effect). Distractor effects described in literature are classified in accordance with their hypothetical source. The general rule of the theory is also introduced. It contains the formal prediction of the particular distractor effect, based on entropy and redundancy measures from the mathematical theory of communication (Shannon, 1948). Single- vs dual-process frameworks are considered for hypothetical mechanisms which underpin the distractor effects. Distractor profiles (DPs) are also introduced for the formalization and simple visualization of experimental data concerning the distractor effects. Typical shapes of DPs and their interpretations are discussed with examples from three frequently cited experiments. Finally, the paper introduces hierarchical hypothesis that states the level-fashion modulating interrelations between distractor effects of different classes.
This article describes the expierence of studying factors influencing the social well-being of educational migrants as mesured by means of a psychological well-being scale (A. Perrudet-Badoux, G.A. Mendelsohn, J.Chiche, 1988) previously adapted for Russian by M.V. Sokolova. A statistical analysis of the scale's reliability is performed. Trends in dynamics of subjective well-being are indentified on the basis the correlations analysis between the condbtbions of adaptation and its success rate, and potential mechanisms for developing subjective well-being among student migrants living in student hostels are described. Particular attention is paid to commuting as a factor of adaptation.
