FEATURES OF PERCEPTION OF THE FAMILY SYSTEMS STATE BY MARRIED COUPLES FROM CLUBS OF THE YOUNG FAMILIES
Sorokov Dmitry Georgievich, Sorokova Marina Gennadyevna. pp. 31-46
Against the background of an upsurge of a number of psychological problems in nuclear families communal communities – informal family clubs are currently gathering power. This gives a peculiar topicality of the study of a supporting role of such associations. The objective of the study is to identify the features of psychological parameters of matrimonial subsystems of young Moscow families – attendants of the family clubs. Respondents: 103 married couples with one child of a preschool age – participants of the government program “Affordable Accommodation to Young Families”, out of them 40 couples are an experimental group of families-attendants of “Family Clubs” in the Marjino district of Moscow, and 64 couples – a control group.
An influence of a communal support factor of young families through the family clubs have not been revealed on the overall indices of their family cohesion and family adaptation. A vast majority of families from both groups belongs to a chaotic family system. The positive consequences of the communal support in a form of family clubs are as follows: the indices of family anxiety/uneasiness in the experimental group are significantly lower and the same of the perceived social support are significantly higher.
The overrated indices of a family dysfunction in the EG in comparison with CG may be explained, presumably, by the better awareness of such problems in the course of communication in clubs. One can see a specific substance of the façade showiness in the EG with regards to 3 parameters – family tension, time spent together and the satisfaction of marriage: families with high façade scores are likely inclined to exaggerating problems in these fields. In the EG a share of both well-to-do families in which both spouses are satisfied with the marriage and the same of “rather not well-to-do families” is twice as much of the CG that might be also explained by a peculiarity of the facade in this group.
