Лифинцева Н. И. Святоотеческое наследие как источник формирования смыслового пространства современной педагогики // Вестник ПСТГУ. Серия IV: Педагогика. Психология. 2013. Вып. 3 (30). С. 69-83.
The problem of sources for formation and development of professional and pedagogical consciousness and its semantic content is updated in the article. The author proves the urgency of the contemporary pedagogical appeal to Christian anthropological patristic heritage, to the experience of spiritual personal growth because that is patristic heritage which consists of both understanding and prophetic attitude to future. The phenomena composing content and mechanisms of evaluating person’s soul birth and transformation and his spiritual awakening in the process of upbringing are revealed in the article. The role of upbringing under conditions of post-modernistic values statement, of educational commercialization is viewed. Consequences of transformation of knowledge and education into a commodity for psychological and spiritual health of a person being developed are examined. Basing on the methodology of a holistic systematic and pragmatic approach to the person’s development, his personal and spiritual ascension the author makes a conclusion that contemporary teaching practice and Pedagogy as a science and a form of art responsible for personal education should be “lighted” with cultural and human ideas and focused on the utmost top meaning of human existence. The analysis of ecclesiastical literature shows that human knowledge without divine enlightenment is nothing but rationalism. If science helps to personal enlightening it is not simply able but should be used in our spiritual life. It is underlined in the article that the urgent problem of the contemporary Pedagogy is that of working out an adequate conception of moral education and personal development, his internal education, soul education, spiritual transformation.

This article describes and analyses the problems of employng supervision in the academic process of training students who are future helping professionals (clinical psychologists, psychologists, social workers). Supervision is presented as a special type of professional relations and interpersonal contact between the supervisor (teacher) and the one supervised (student), the result of which is the professional development. The article presents the normative, reconstructive-supporting and formative functions of supervision. It discusses the problems of using supervision in the system of higher education, i.e. the supervisor’s adherence to a certain psychological school, the limitations of formats and its functions, the duality of relations between the supervisor and the trainee. The article also presents results of an empirical study, the purpose of which was to evaluate and analyse the problems of using the supervision in training of future specialists in helping professions. The main diffi culties in using supervision in the higher education system mentioned by the participants of the study are the preparation of a case for supervision, lack of compliance of supervision with real professional needs of the trainee, issuing orders and commanding alongside the lack of alternatives in selecting the supervisor, inability to discuss personal issues in the supervisory process and the “permeability” of psychological boundaries. Most participants in the study proposed to withdraw supervision from the academic process, leaving it to curators of practical activities that are not connected with the institution of higher education. The main focus of supervision should be the development of students’ professional identity; training in emloying techniques; ability to transform knowledge into practice; ability of professional self-awareness.
