1 Occupational Health Facility, the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the City of Moscow, Moscow, Russian Federation
Abstract. The aim of the study was to identify differences of protective and coping behavior and its dynamics in conditions of asthenization and anxiety-depressive response in employees of internal affairs bodies, suffering from somatoform vegetative dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract.
Materials and methods of research. To reveal structural and dynamic characteristics of the protective response and character of the asthenization depression and anxiety influence on the internal affairs employees, 64 police officers with somatoform vegetative dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract (F. 45.3) according to criteria of ICD-10 were investigated.
Results of the study and their analysis. The study revealed that the differences were both purely individual and cross-cutting, reflecting a pronounced intrapersonal conflict. This indicates the weakness of the defense system in police employees suffering from somatoform vegetative dysfunction of the gastrointestinal tract, regardless of gender identity, emphasizing their low adaptive capacity, making it difficult to recognize the problems. The basic socio-professional characteristics of police officers are reflected and their role in protective and coping response is shown. The results of the study are offered to use in psychohygienic work with employees, prone to somatoform reactions.
