FAMILY AND SOCIETY
"Getting married we refuse our rights to some extend and multiply our responsibilities". This phrase belongs to German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer.

The modern social movements have developed a critical situation for the general function of the family that is to preserve the nation. These and other urgent issues were discussed during the student conference, with the participants from different IHE, headed Family as a Nation Preserving Institute. The conference was organized at the Faculty of Philosophy and Psychology of YSU.

When Head of the family, father, leaves for a long-term job abroad, the other members of the family take his role upon themselves and in this case the traditional image of the family is corrupted. This also has its impact on the psychology and character of the children, - said Narine Harutyunyan, head of the organizational committee of the conference.

Students from YSU, Armenian-Russian (Slavonic) University, Urartu, University after Loris Qalashyan (these two are open universities) and YSU Ijevan Branch were among the participants. The theses of the reports have been published in a brochure.

Years ago, when I considered the profession of psychologists, occupied in the area of psychology of family, to be important my elder colleagues had a little doubt connected with this decision. Today, there is not such a motion anymore and the research of the family has become one of our most important areas among our activities, - mentioned Seyran Amiryan, Assistant Professor from the Chair of Theory and History of Psychology.

Head of the Student Council of the faculty Tamara Aydinyan ensured us that this was an excellent event to establish relations with the students from other IHE and future colleagues.
