Natalya Komlyonok (2008 ISSRPL)

I graduated from the psychological department of the Vitebsk State University (Belarus) in 2003. I have been working as psychologist with children, teenagers and adults. In 2007 I graduated from the post-graduate study course. The topic of my PhD research is “The psychological determinants of the stigmatization in adolescents”. I have analyzed the roots of stigmatization such as prejudice, defense mechanism, stereotypes, problems in communication, and others. I have experience in teaching such a university courses as psychology of work, developmental psychology, psychology of ideology. My interest and challenge is the psychological approach in resolving various social and public problems. And my permanent question is – WHAT CAN I DO to live in a better world?
