Abstract | Full Text

The purpose of the article is to study the general structural and content characteristics of the family self-consciousness of men and to identify their characteristics depending on the type of family self-consciousness of men. The study is based on the subject-activity and personality-oriented approaches. The sample consisted of 120 men living in the cities of Sverdlovsk region, aged from 27 to 49 years (M=35 years), married from 3 to 27 years (M=10 years), with minor children. The features of the structural components content of family self-consciousness are studied. The typology of family self-consciousness of men is empirically verified. It reflects the features of a man’s perception of himself in the family, the specifics of his attitude to himself as a family member, the peculiarities of his realization of family roles and functions. The authors conducted the phenomenological analysis of the category “family self-consciousness of men” in the unity of its cognitive, emotional, behavioral components. Three types of men’s family self-consciousness are empirically identified and described as “harmonious”, “disharmonious in relations with a child”, “disharmonious in relations with a wife and a child”. The article is addressed to family psychologists and specialists engaged in professional training and retraining of psychologists to work with the family.
