Abstract

The article presents general approaches and peculiarities of neuropsychological correction of the main forms of the deviant behaviour. The initial, secondary and tertiary symptom complexes, which are characteristic of all forms of the deviant behaviour, are outlined. It is stated that the initial symptom complex is caused by dysfunctions in programming, regulating and controlling the mental activity resulting from prefrontal cortex damage. The methods of neuropsychological correction of different symptomological nuclei of the initial symptom complex are suggested. It is discovered that the secondary damage defect is recognized by the hostile attribution, which results from gnostic and mnemonic disorders, low intelligence, lack of communicative skills, disadaptation and somatic disorders. The methods of neuropsychological correction of the symptoms of the secondary defect are presented. It is pointed out that the tertiary symptom complex with a negative compensatory rearrangement is formed according to the principles of pathological homeostasis and constant desire to derive satisfaction. It is suggested to reduce activity of the pleasure centre using techniques of establishing connection between prefrontal cortex and the adjacent nucleus. The characteristic aspects of neuropsychological correction of aggression displayed by people with or without posttraumatic stress disorder are singled out. It is suggested to apply an anthropocentric approach to correction of sexual deviances with regard to the system of values and norms of the society. It is specified that neuropsychological basis of suicidal behaviour is formed by: malfunction of the ventral, hyperfunction of the dorsolateral and hyperfuntion of the orbitofrontal parts of the prefrontal cortex, hyperfunction of the neocortex in the right hemisphere and reduction of the parahippocampal gyrus. Advanced strategy for suicidal behaviour correction is suggested. It is advised to recover critical thinking in the process of addictive behaviour correction by eliminating automated addictive action’s launch mechanisms and by fighting pathological homeostasis of the brain.

Key words: aggressive behaviour, sexual deviances, suicidal behaviour, addictive behaviour, neuropsychological correction, brain malfunction.
