Previous and Current Research

Recently completed project concerned psychology of personality in life situations: approaches and programs of complex psychological assistance. The base for the development of psychological methodology of life situations has been established.

Establishment of Ethnocultural Psychology as a separate discipline.

For a significantly long period of time, ethnic and cultural psychology have been separated in terms of methodology and research practice. The recent research allowed to combine ethnic and cultural approaches into one unit without losing the specificity of every approach. As a result, it became possible to distinguish culture as a unifying variable, personality and ethnicity and integrative variables and processes that allow all of the mentioned variables to function coherently.

The results of the research were presented in the monograph, published in 2019. 

Future Projects and Goals

Psychological Adaptation of Ukrainian Economic Migrants in Poland and Psychological Adaptation of Ukrainian Economic Migrants in Poland after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main aim of the project is to determine the specificity of economic behavior of Ukrainian migrants in Poland and identify their ways of psychological adaptation. The branch of the study is conducted within the framework of social psychology (Social and Humanitarian Sciences).

Expected results. Over the last 4 years, the phenomenon of migration in Ukraine to Poland has not been investigated enough. There are some disturbing results that can be expected in this scale of migration. The ignorance that accompanies this mass phenomenon requires filling, both for general cognitive and applied reasons, when the control of social processes is supported by scientific knowledge. The historical and political problems of relations between Poland and Ukraine should not be considered regardless of the context of todays immigration. This relationship should also be seen in the opposite direction: do historical events reflect and to what extent historical events reflect the current relations between the migrant Ukrainians and the Poles among whom they work. Therefore, the outcomes of the research project:

- Study of the specific psychological adaptation of labor (economic) migrants.

- Identification of the main difficulties of adaptation of labor migrants from Ukraine to Poland.

- The formulation of recommendations for improving the psychological adaptation of migrant workers.

- Reporting of research results.

- Publication of the monograph based on the results obtained.

- Publication of articles in collections that are included in international science databases, including Scopus and Web of Science.
