Abstract

The role of personality and socio-psychological factors in the initiation and course of bronchial asthma are analyzed from a systemic psychogenic-existential point of view. In this context, the meaning of personality subsystems (perception, individual psychological defences, cognition, emotional reactivity, behavior) and peculiarities of microsocial environment (group/family myths, structural and functional group characteristics) are discussed. High effectiveness of Family Psychotherapy and Gestalt Therapy in the treatment of patients with bronchial asthma is pointed out.
