The Counseling Profession in Russia: Historical Roots, Current Trends, and Future Perspectives
Currie, Christine L.; Kuzmina, Marina V.; Nadyuk, Ruslan I.
Journal of Counseling & Development, v90 n4 p488-493 Oct 2012
Psychology was established in Russia before the Communist era. The social work profession was created in 1991 for a society in turmoil after the collapse of the Soviet Union. In 2011, the counseling profession officially emerged as a branch of social work called "social psychological help". Professional counseling associations are in the formative stage. Concern about mental health issues, particularly substance abuse, suggests that the counseling profession could continue to grow in Russia.
