Training questions:

1. The reasons for the increasing role of military psychology and its condition.

2. Prospects for the development of military psychology and ways of introducing its achievements into military practice.



The reasons for the increasing role of military psychology and its condition.

The state of military psychologists is a reflection of the development of science at the time of its analysis and evaluation. It is evaluated by three indicators: the presence of a social order for the development of psychology in a particular industry; ordering military practice for psychological science; the level of development of psychological science.

Thus, military-psychological science in modern conditions, on the basis of achieving a new qualitative level of scientific-psychological thought, directs its efforts to ensure the effective implementation of the tasks solved by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in various conditions, as well as to provide psychological assistance to military personnel and members of their families .

The ways to implement the achievements of military psychology are mainly based on the activation of the human factor through holding scientific conferences, round tables in close cooperation with the troops, the scientific community, expanding the scope of participants in scientific forums with the involvement of more team officials; the formation of motivation to master the latest achievements of psychological science among military personnel arriving for retraining and advanced training; further development of practical manuals for various officials of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.

Prospects for the development of military psychology and ways of introducing its achievements into military practice.

The general prospects for the development of military psychology are its further integration in psychological science, the strengthening of scientific positions, the consolidation of the efforts of military psychologists to solve the problems associated with the psychological support of the activities of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, and the justification of the need to create an independent psychological service in the interests of analyzing and using the latest achievements of psychology for the needs of army practice.

The priority areas of research are: analysis of the influence of ethnopsychological problems on the activities of the Armed Forces at the present stage; psychology of managerial activity of a military leader in the conditions of combat activity; psychological support in a combat situation; psychological and informational security of military personnel in modern warfare; psychological rehabilitation of military personnel - participants in armed conflicts.

The general prospect of research has a pronounced applied orientation for the activities of the Armed Forces.
Among the promising studies in military psychology are, first of all, the development of tools (methods) for the psychological analysis of combat missions, erroneous actions, the assessment of psychogenic losses, the assessment of the mental health of personnel, etc. The experience of combat operations highlights the issues of communication technology with an aggressive-minded group, mastering the techniques of talking with alarmist, looter, deserter, soldiers with negative youth. Particularly urgent is the development of techniques for the provision of psychological assistance and the restoration of combat readiness, in particular, the technique of eliminating fear, panic, rigidity, the technique of self-adjustment, self-regulation, the technique of rehabilitation of military personnel in combat and other extreme operations.

However, with great difficulties, the process of introducing the achievements of military psychology into practice is ongoing. The main problem is the lack of material support for psychological work, as a result of which the main emphasis in its organization and conduct is placed on the personality factor. Many officials, realizing the great importance of military psychology to increase the effectiveness of the combat activity of units and formations, actively contribute to the work of military psychologists. In addition, it is difficult for commanders, and in educational institutions, to understand that a psychologist is obliged to be guided by ethical standards when solving tasks of psychological support for work. And for the psychologist himself, the presence of a dilemma - to fulfill the task of the commander and not harm the person - is sometimes a very difficult problem.
