Psychological Help: Perfecting the Legal Framework
30 June 2022
14:30—16:00
Right here and right now Russian Federation urgently needs an improvement of legal regulation in the area of psychological help. The problem has several roots. First, there is no holistic, systemic law regulating psychological help on the federal level. Legal regulation of these services is performed in the sectoral federal laws and is of fragmentary nature. Moreover, the definitions used in the legislation are ambiguous, there are no unified approaches to the content of the conceptual meaning of the term. Second, there is an imbalance between the number of actual and/or potential recipients of psychological help on the one hand, and the state and society's abilities to render such help on the other hand. Both issues are caused by the absence of a unified system of psychological help in the Russian Federation, by the lack of qualified professionals in this sphere, and by missing requirements for professional standards.
