I`m a PhD student of Moscow State University of Psychology and Education, of the faculty of social psychology. Being a student of this university during the previous years I participated in different outreach seminars training programs and psychological schools, including the International School of Psychological State University of Nature, Society and Human “Dubna”. There I was fortunate to listen to lectures of A.L. Venger, V.P. Zinchenko, which were devoted to the main principles of cultural-historical theory, and to opportunities of psychological practice which this theory gives. Also there I got an experience of research presentation. I visited sections of psychology and philosophy of the Moscow House of Scientists for a few years. Thus, my research interests began to form. My research interests are related to the development of the interrelation between the cognitive, emotional, behavioral components of moral normativity and status-role structure of small social groups in the primary school age. Cultural-historical theory of L.S. Vygotsky and its postulate about the social situation of development is a theoretical basis of our research. It would be very interesting and valuable to learn more current information about the mechanisms of internalization of moral norms during our work in ISCAR SU 2011.
