Abstract

On the basis of the analysis of scientific ideas, principles and results of modern psychology and related scientific disciplines the theoretical and methodological potential and applied content of Internet technologies in psychological practice are established.  In addition to the fundamental theories (social presence, media enrichment, explanation of the effect of deindividualization through social identity, electronic affinity, etc.) an important role belongs to the genetic-psychological approach, according to which the defining postulate of real and virtual communication of a person is a need as a personal act that «Keeps" in unity the affective and intellectual components of the individual and ensures their interconnected interaction.  As a result of overcoming the need for socialization, and education (in general, internalizations of cultural-historical experience), and self-development, that is, provided by successful person-communicative human psychogenesis.  Implementation of the practice of psychological counseling and non-medical psychotherapeutic support of the conceptual model of psychological assistance to adolescents in the conditions of virtualization of social communications using Internet technologies confirmed the correlation of the dynamics of changes in the personal profile of adolescents who received assistance in the conditions of online and offline-activity of a practical psychologist.  This gives grounds to assert that provision of psychological help in the specially created conditions of the online modality of psycho-counseling and non-medical psychotherapeutic services by means of Internet technologies is effective.  Accordingly, it can be argued that, in the modernization of a modern society, the provision of psychological care should be oriented towards the potential of virtual social communication - the merging of online and offline activities in the real-world co-existence space with the use of Internet technologies.
