History of the Laboratory 

Our Laboratory was founded on the basis of the All-Russia Scientific Research Institute for Physical Culture ARSRIPC) on 1 February 2002 as a Laboratory of Social Programs and Issues of State Regulation in Physical Culture and Sport. The Laboratory was renamed into the Laboratory of Physical Culture Problems on 1 June 2003 and into the Laboratory of Physical Culture Issues For Adults - on 1 April 2004. The Laboratory was finally reorganized into the Laboratory of Physical Culture and Practical Psychology on 1 November 2005. 

The Laboratory has been headed for all this time by Olga Tiunova, PhD in Education, associate professor, member of the academic council of the Institute, member of the Russian Psychological Society (RPS), member of the International Society of Sport Psychology (ISSP). 

Technologies applied by the Laboratory are based on an integral estimate and correction of physical and psychological health of a modern human. For a number of decades specialists of the Laboratory have been successfully developing mass physical culture and sports in this country, participating in state federal purpose programs related to solution of social issues of the Russian broad population. The Laboratory has developed two Russian Federal Standards (GOST R 52024-2003) and (GOST R 52025-2003) for health and sports services. 

There has been experience accumulated in health improving physical culture and high performance sports as well as in practical and sport psychology sufficient to penetrate and complement technologies of individual’s psychophysical state optimization. This may mean both the peculiar inclusion of sport experience in physical and psychological training of common people and vice versa the use of effective self building techniques, customized programs for physical and psychic recovery in work with highly qualified athletes. 

In accordance with Order No. 777 dated 27 November 2006 issued by the Russian Federal Agency for Physical Culture, Sports and Tourism a Psychological Services Center for Highly Qualified Athletes was established within the framework of the Laboratory of Physical Culture and Practical Psychology on 1 March 2007.  

All the Laboratory members have good experience in dealing with highly qualified athletes and other personally or socially goal-oriented people. 

We look forward to cooperation and believe in success of our work!
