The X All-Russian competition of professional skills among psychologists of power structures “The Power of the Soul” was held from November 15 to December 2, 2021. Traditionally, it was held to coincide with the celebration of the All-Russian Day of the Psychologist on November 22. It was on this day in 1994 that the Founding Congress of the Russian Psychological Society took place, which resumed the activities of the Society of Psychologists of Russia, which has been leading its history since 1885.

– The importance of the profession of a psychologist is obvious to everyone today. Our world is changing, it becomes more compressed in everyday life, in service, and in work, with a lot of stress. And what we call the soul, of course, requires its attention. We understand that the effectiveness and efficiency of a person depends not only on his qualifications and skill, but to a large extent on his inner state, on what we call “mental attitude” – emphasized Ruslan Tsalikov.

“The competition among psychologists of power structures and other similar events strengthen interaction between state structures, departments of the“ power block, ”continued the First Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation. – I am absolutely sure that the competition was held among bright, talented, intelligent and “burning” people with their profession, and they will receive their well-deserved awards for their professionalism and for showing themselves well in the competition. I wish it to develop, and the Ministry of Defense, for its part, is doing everything possible for this. – noted the First Deputy Minister of Defense.

Those who have chosen psychology as their profession know that it requires from specialists, on the one hand, constant improvement, craving for knowledge, advanced training, and, on the other hand, tireless adherence to the laws of science and painstaking work. These requirements are higher for psychologists of power structures. After all, their activities go hand in hand with those who risk their lives every day. The efficiency of all security services depends on the quality of the work performed (from professional psychological selection to measures to restore combat readiness and efficiency).

The competition is not only a demonstration of the level of skill, but also an opportunity for specialists to exchange experience, find common approaches and new solutions, sometimes in such different and sometimes equivalent tasks. Traditionally, winners of departmental competitions held among psychologists of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Russia, the Federal Penitentiary Service of Russia, the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation and other law enforcement agencies took part in it. The Armed Forces presented the finalists of the XII All-Army Competition for Psychological Service Specialists of the RF Armed Forces, held in June 2021 in Mirny, Arkhangelsk Region.

On December 2, the names of the winners were announced in the video conference mode:

1st place was shared by a teacher-psychologist of the highest category of the Kazan Suvorov military school NATSIBULLINA Albina and a senior psychologist-inspector of the department of medical and psychological support of the logistics department of the Main Directorate of the EMERCOM of Russia for the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug Yugra KIRILLOVA Olga;
