About department:

The Laboratory of Psychology of Small Groups and Intergroup Relations was established in 2006 with the aim of investigating the problems of intragroup and intergroup interaction in various social situations.

Scientists of the laboratory study the problems of group interaction in difficult social situations; intergroup interaction in conditions of war and peace; group identity; group unconscious; psychology of collective trauma; psychology of roles and gender psychology; mental health; psychology of historical memory; diverse aspects of psychotherapy, psychological rehabilitation and counseling psychology and many others.

• The main scientific achievements of the laboratory include:
• Socio-psychological theory of group identity in small groups of educational and social environments
• The main provisions of the theory of the conscious and unconscious as factors in the regulation of group interaction
• The main provisions of the theory of problem group interaction in difficult social situations

Since 2021, laboratory staff has been carrying out scientific research on the topic “Psychology of intergroup interaction in the historical and territorial dimensions.” Since war is an extreme form of intergroup interaction, and the factors of war are historically and territorially determined features of intergroup relations, the definition of temporal and spatial socio-psychological mechanisms of conflict interaction of social groups is relevant and prognostically important. The study involves determining the scientific foundations for resolving and overcoming contradictions, tensions, conflicts between different social groups caused by collective traumas, states of war and peace.

Over the years, the laboratory worked: doctors of psychological sciences V.V. Gorbunova, V.R. Dorozhkin, O.A. Leshchinskaya, candidates of psychological sciences O.L. Voznesenskaya, N.V. Dyshlova, G.V. Tsyganenko.
