Kazantseva E.V., Kholina O.A., Moskalenko A.E. - Assessment of Mindfulness Level among the Students Prone to Addictive Behaviour pp. 1-10


Abstract: The article deals with a new cognitive construct of mindfulness, strongly discussed in the foreign scientific area. It describes principal characteristics and spheres, in which the development of the given cognitive phenomenon occurs, for example, in spheres of therapeutic approach, philosophical and pedagogical approach, the approach of personal knowledge and development. Based on foreign and national data, the study emphasizes the impact of mindfulness on significant personality structures, such as reflection, thoughtfulness, and personal life satisfaction. At the empirical stage of the study, it checks university students for the correlation between inclination to addictive behaviour and a high level of mindfulness. The sample encompasses 100 university students including 52 girls and 42 boys with an average age of 20.2. For the examination of the proposed hypothesis, the authors use such methods as The Method of Inclination to 13 types of Addiction by G.V. Lozova and the Mindful Attention Awareness Scale (MAAS) by K.W. Brown, R.M Ryan in the adaptation of A.M. Golubev. To verify the data, the authors use methods of mathematical statistics, as well as empirical results obtained in several foreign studies. The authors perform mathematical processing using the SPSS Statistics 6.0 program. In general, the study found that the high level of mindfulness has an inverse correlation with the inclination to addictive behaviour.

Kholina O.A., Kazantseva E.V., Petrova E.G. - Psychotherapeutic capacity and main capabilities of meditative practices in working with addictive behavior pp. 15-28


Abstract: This article analyzes the conceptual moment of modern psychotherapy using the example of meditative practice in working with addictive behavior. The scientific and practical potential of implementation of meditative practices in modern psychotherapy is substantiated. The characteristics of cognitive construct of mindfulness are described. In a number of foreign and national works, mindfulness is viewed as the key mechanism of personal growth and individual wellbeing, as well as the leading instrument of psychotherapeutic practice that allows a person to avoid “absentminded life”, perceive reality consciously and purposively. The authors describe the key positions of Buddhist philosophy included by the foreign researchers into the space of cognitive-behavioral therapy, as well as analyze the accumulation of Eastern experience by the Western scientific traditions. The article displays the main therapeutic models implemented into the modern foreign therapeutic practice that were created on the basis of mindfulness: J. Kabat-Zinn “Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Program” (MBSR); J. Kristeller “Mindfulness-Based Eating Awareness Training” (MB-EAT). The authors examine the examples of empirical studies of using the practice of mindfulness in working with alcohol and drug addiction, as well as compulsive eating disorder.

Kazantseva E.V., Lipovaya O.A. - The Problem of Describing the Narrative Structure of Social Representations pp. 33-43


Abstract: The authors of the article discuss the scientific experience and possibility of applying the narrative approach to the analysis of the phenomenon of social representations. They analyze the content of the concepts and points of intersection between two traditions: the narrative approach and the concept of social representations; typical examples of empirical studies proposed by foreign authors at the interface of the narrative approach and the concept of social representations. The authors offer the main areas for further research, present and analyze cognitive structures developed in modern studies of social representations, "theme" and "cognitive polyphasia". Theoretical schemes for considering social representations with the help of narrative structures are described. The authors also analyze the studies of foreign authors who support the concept of social representations not familiar to the Russian-speaking reader such as J. Laszlo, R. Farr, V. Duaz, and S. Jovchelovitch. A theoretical model of considering social representations based on narrative structures is demonstrated. For the first time in Russian academic literature, a study examining the phenomenon of social representations through the prism of a narrative approach is presented. The points of intersection of the two approaches are described, and the unity of the general scientific sociocultural paradigm is demonstrated for considering narrative and social representations. The urgency and the scientific nature of the superposition of the narrative matrix on the structure of social representations is substantiated, microgenetic processes are identified which allows a detailed analysis of the internal mechanisms of social representations.

Kazantseva E.V. - Psychological Сontent of the Narrative Scheme pp. 39-48


Abstract: Modern narrative researches mostly focus on the phenomenon of narrative identity presenting it as a key construct. The purpose of this article is to shift the emphasis of research to the analysis of the narrative scheme which is described as a stable structure formed within the framework of personal experience. Psychological content of the narrative scheme is defined as personal purposes and actions in terms of one's personal narration. The author of the article proves her idea that the narrative scheme is a basic framework that contains mental and conceptual structures attributable to the narration and personality in general. The author of the article brings forth the idea of multidisciplinary scientific knowledge incorporating elements of modern schematology, narrative approach, psychology and linguistics. The author of the paper analyzes different approaches to the description of the narrative scheme and its main components. The study confirms the idea about the need to study sociocultural foundations of personal experience, revealing personal component in the social deterministic models. Analysis of narrative schemas reveals opportunities for exploration of personal motivation, goal setting process, personal characteristics of perception and understanding of social situations.
