“A psychologist is not a person, but a profession”

The name of this part of the article is the words of S.V. Petrushin, regional representative of the All-Russian Professional Psychotherapeutic League in Tatarstan. In his book Psychological Counseling Workshop, this is the name of one of the chapters that begins

as follows: “One of my acquaintances said:“ Why study as a psychologist? This is just a good person. Here I am, for example, a real psychologist! The main thing is that he should listen, sympathize and give valuable advice. I help so many of my friends. ” Her words revealed a widespread misconception related to the unclear nature of the role of the psychologist. In fact, the psychologist does not give advice, does not sympathize, and he listens more to himself than to the client. The difference between professional communication and ordinary, “human” communication is that it is of a working nature. Mixing working relationships with other types of relationships not only complicates, but also makes it impossible to solve a psychological problem. They are not friends with the client, they do not consult friends.
A working relationship is a pure mirror relationship. “Human” relationships distort perception. For example, love as a mirror of idealization, friendship is a mirror of interdependence, friendships are a mirror of tact ”[Petrushin. S. 43].

Thus, perhaps, the author formulates the generally accepted law of psychological counseling somewhat categorically: it is impossible to provide professional psychological assistance to a person who is perceived not as a client, but as a person who is part of your personal

life (friend, enemy, friend, relative ...).

However, in our opinion, one cannot take S. Petrushin’s attitude literally: for if a psychologist is not a person, but a function, then neither empathy, nor reflection, nor rapport will be possible — none of the constitutive components of the consultative psychological space. This statement leads to the following concept, which is, i.e. not an alternative, but a necessary complement to the previous one.

“A psychologist is not a person, but a profession”

  1. “A psychologist is first and foremost a man”
    I would like to quote the parable as an argument to this widespread concept: “For many days in a row there were competitions in the country of samurai.
