Pathocharacterological personality changes, neurotic traits, internal conflicts, neurotic personality, emotional reactions, traumatic situations, neurotic states, psychotherapeutic methods


In the given article, we analyze the features, preconditions and mechanisms of neurotic personality development under the influence of psychological factors. A character portrait of a neurotic personality is described. The stages of personality neuroticism are considered, from emotional reactions to subjectively significant traumatic events to neurotic personality development. A detailed theoretical and methodological analysis is provided. Neurotic traits of a healthy personality are characterized. The article suggests various integration options for psychotherapeutic methods in combination with neuro-psychic correction of emotional, personal, cognitive and behavioral disorders that characterize the neurotic development of personality. It is noted that competently integrated, systemic, complex and individual approaches should be implemented in the psychotherapeutic process. Neuropsychocorrective influence on emotional-cognitive and behavioral disorders of neurotic nature should be implemented in stages, where the neuropsychological tasks become more complex and where psychotherapeutic goals are combined with the methods of body-oriented psychotherapy, holotropic therapy and art therapy. We also point out the necessity of competent development and implementation of a neuropsychocorrection program in combination with psychotherapy of those disorders that are associated with the localization of certain mental functions in the cerebral cortex.
