Keywords:methodology, epistemological principles, personality, psychological assessment, diagnosis, intervention, therapy
The article is aimed at substantiate the need of taking into account the epistemological principles in the process of applying methods of psycholo- gical assessment, counseling and intervention, which in turn can contribute to the purposeful preservation of the physical and mental health of a per- son. Modern psychological assessment is an important scientific and applied component of psychological cognition. A reliable psychological assessment of individual personality traits and its mental state is of categorical impor- tance, since it is aimed at identifying a specific and situational phenomenon for the further use of various practices. In this regard, a practical psychologist must possess the professional skills of psychological diagnostics, which implies the ability to establish connections between the external signs of a phenomenon and the internal psychological characteristics of a person. In this case, a special role is assigned to the epistemological foundations of psychological science and practice, which directly affect the formation of the methodology of counseling, therapy and training.
