Workplace of a practical psychologist

The successful practical work of a psychologist is facilitated by the organization of his workplace. In solving this issue, he himself should be quite active. The psychologist must have a separate office. However, this does not mean that he will spend most of his working time in it. It is necessary often enough to contact people at their workplaces, to be a full member of the team and an active participant in the organization.

A study is necessary for storing documentation, teaching materials, conducting individual interviews or psychological diagnostics.

Of course, it is important for a practical psychologist to independently, creatively approach the organization of the workplace. Specialists offer the following approximate material support for the workplace of a psychologist (Workbook .., 1996, p. 34).

1. Psychologist’s office with a safe for storing materials.

2. Psychological relief room for:

- conducting psychological relaxation;

- removal of neuropsychological stress; emotional discharge;

- individual and group psychological counseling;

- psychoprophylactic and psychocorrectional measures;

- work item, mail or helpline.

3.
Material base of psychotherapeutic influence:

- audio equipment;

- audio cassettes with notes of a psychotherapeutic nature;

- projection equipment;

- projection materials of a psychotherapeutic nature;

- a special lighting system and other means conducive to the implementation of psychotherapeutic effects.

4. The material base of psychodiagnostics:

- office supplies;

- audio equipment with recordings of stimulus material, special forms;

- personal computer, calculator and other organizational equipment.

5. The material base of psychological education and psychological preparation:

In the future, material support for a psychologist’s workplace should expand and include: special-purpose technical equipment, a set of psycho-diagnostic tools, a dictaphone, video equipment, etc. (Workbook .., 1996, p. 34).
