Abstract

The dissertation focuses on the results of psychological determinants of attachment of urban youth to their place of residence. The thesis presents the theoretical and empirical solution of the scientific problem - the nature of place attachment and the psychological factors, which determinate it in the group of urban youth. It has been determined that the attachment to a place of residence as a connection between a person or a group of persons and a place that can be defined in terms of spatial level, level of specificity and characterized by social and physical qualities, and this relationship manifests itself through emotional, cognitive and behavioral processes. The thesis is presented an integrative theoretical model of the psychological determinants of the attachment of urban youth to the place of residence, which included such content blocks: value-orientation determinants, cognitive-sensual determinants, behavioral tendencies, individual psychological properties, social interaction. In the thesis are generalized the differences and psychological peculiarities of urban youth with different types of attachment to the place of residence («traditionally attached to a place of residence», «unattached to a place of residence», «paradoxically attached to a place of residence») and their psychological portraits covering the analysis of value, individual psychological, behavioral, cognitive and emotional aspects, as well as features of social interaction. The empirically verified model of psychological determinants of youth attachment to a place of residence, which consisting of four blocks (value-orientation, behavioral, cognitive-sensory, social interaction) is presented with determination of determinants in each of them, which promote / hinder the strengthening of emotional connections with a place of residence. The peculiarities of determining the attachment to the place of residence of urban youth are generalized. Under the condition of more explicit identity (territorial and social) young people take over, specify or correct the system of knowledge, beliefs, and behavior concerning the area of residence, on the basis of which forms more conscious links with the place of residence. The attachment to the place of residence and the identification of the processes associated with it are interdependent: through the development of a positive relationship with the place of residence, the territorial, state identity of the young person can be developed in order to strengthen their identity. Understanding of their own goals and life benchmarks by urban youth helps to understand the meaning of the place of residence in the life of a young person and the possibility of more effective use of it in achieving their own goals; feeling of psychological and emotional comfort, satisfactionwith their own lives, a sense of community with others, which leads to the strengthening of ties with the community of the area and promotes the formation of trust in social interaction within a certain locality, stimulates the formation of links with the place of residence. The ability to form and maintain trust in relationships with others, to regulate their emotional states, and to show confidence in others and the world, helps to strengthen ties with the place. It is confirmed that the ability to consistently address everyday problems and solve them, to accept life challenges, combined with a positive attitude towards yourself and your experience with a future orientation or satisfaction in the present determines attachment to the place of residence. At the same time, the desire to separate, guided in their actions and assess, based only on their own standards, the desire to resist the surrounding impedes the connections of the young person with place of residence. According to the obtained results were developed some recommendations and directions of work for psychologists, social workers and employees of the city's administrative structures to work with the development and support of the attachment of urban youth to their place of residence.
