    This article examines the essential characteristics of the communicative abilities of psycho- logists working in the method of biosuggestive therapy (biosuggestive therapists) as a symptom complex that includes a person’s ability to interact with other people, to adequately interpret the received information, as well as to transmit it correctly. The quality and level of the ability to interact with people at the level of the harmonious pole of dynamic, emotional, regulato- ry, motivational, cognitive, productive and reflective-evaluative characteristics of sociability, determined according to the “Judgment test for studying personality sociability (JTFSPS)” methodology of A. I. Krupnov, are shown. It is also demonstrated that the ability to adequ- ately interpret received information is determined by the level of development of empathic abilities (according to the method of V. V. Boyko), as well as by the sensitivity of a person to the non-verbal behaviour of another and the ability to adequately identify it (according to the method of expert evaluation of non-verbal communication by A. M. Kuznetsova). It is summarized that biosuggestive psychologists can adequately interpret received information either through the ability to put themselves in their partner’s place, together with the ability to adequately identify the non-verbal behaviour of communication partners, or through the ability to understand the inner world of the interlocutor, creating an atmosphere of openness, trustworthiness, and intimacy during communication. It is shown that the ability to correctly convey information is manifested at the level of the ability to achieve mutual understanding, to influence others (according to the “Perceptual-Interactive Competence Test” method of N. P. Fetyskina), as well as the ability to manage the non-verbal repertoire (according to the method of expert assessment of non-verbal communication A. M. Kuznetsova). It was determined in the factor analysis that the most essential characteristics that de- termine the communicative activity of a biosuggestive psychologist with a high level of com- municative ability are: externality – the need for communication; internality – egocentricity; objectivity – non-verbal influence; and mutual recognition – categoricalness.

    Judicial review of the legality of administrative acts is one of the most important elements of the rule of law. The institute of administrative justice began to develop in the 19th century: in 1872 The French Council of State was given a function of judicial review, the Administrative Court in Vienna (Austria-Hungary) was established in 1867, in Baden (Germany) in 1863, etc. After the First World War, administrative courts were established in several European countries. The law on the Supreme Administrative Court and its Jurisdiction in Czechoslovakia was adopted in 1918.1The Law for the Supreme Administrative Court in Poland was issued in 1922.2Administrative courts were also functioning in other countries (Latvia, Estonia). In Lithuania administrative courts were established for the first time in 1999, although up to fifteen draft laws on the Administrative Court were prepared in the interwar Lithuania. This article was written on the occasion of the centenary of the Polish administrative courts. Thus, the purpose of the article is to familiarize the readers with Lithuanian administrative courts, starting with the development of the institute of administrative justice from 1918 and ending with the perspectives of judicial review formed in that time. Therefore, the authors of the article set the following objectives: to remind of the origins of administrative justice in Lithuania from 1918 to 1940; to reveal the course of the establishment of administrative courts after the Restoration of the Independence of the Republic of Lithuania in 1990, briefly discussing who and on the basis of which legal acts controlled the legality of administrative acts during the Soviet era; to provide the insights of institutional evelopment as well as competence development of the administrative courts; to present contemporary administrative process, giving some insights about the status quo; to present the features of and the most relevant reforms of administrative process.

    Research background: Tourism sector is considered as a driving force of economic develop-ment and understanding factors that deter the flow of tourists and hinder its development, which is essential for all actors involved in this industry. Oeconomia Copernicana,14(3), 1009–10351010 Purpose of the article: The purpose of the article is to investigate the impact of rule of law, corruption, and terrorism on tourism in 14 coastal states of the Mediterranean Sea based on the United Nations classification. Methods: The short and long-run relationships among the rule of law, corruption, terrorism and tourism are respectively analyzed through Dumitrescu and Hurlin causality test and LM bootstrap cointegration test taking notice of the presence of heterogeneity and cross-sectional dependence. Findings & value added: The causality analysis reveals that control of corruption has a signif-icant influence on tourism only in the short run. The cointegration analysis uncovers that terrorism negatively affects the tourism in Albania, Algeria, Egypt, and Tunisia, but im-provements in corruption also positively affect the tourism in Albania, Algeria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Greece and Italy. Last, the rule of law has a positive impact on tourism in Egypt, Greece, and Israel. In this context, the rule of law can also be a key factor for tourism devel-opment via combat with corruption and terrorism. Based on some unique characteristics, the Mediterranean region has consolidated its position as the world's leading tourist destination, but to maintain this competitive position, it is crucial to recognize and adopt strategies that respond to all key challenges faced by this sector

    This research focuses on the assessment of post-traumatic growth (PTG) in an ongoing crisis situation – namely, the war in Ukraine. This research was designed as a crosssectional correlational study and was conducted 6 months after the beginning of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The authors focused on the following sociodemographic aspects: gender, age, marital status, number of children, place of current residence (either within or outside Ukraine), subjective evaluation of financial state, satisfaction with current living conditions, and current employment status. Personal life-experiences of traumatic events were assessed using the Life Events Checklist (LEC-5); PTG was assessed using the Post-Traumatic Growth Inventory (PTGI). The study included 706 participants (age M = 32.1); 155 males and 541 females. Using one- and two-way ANOVA, we answered the following research questions: To what extent do individuals living in war-torn areas exhibit indications of PTG? Can sociodemographic variables serve as reliable predictors of PTG? How do levels of PTG differ between individuals residing in Ukraine and those living abroad? What is the relationship between PTG and war-related trauma? It was found that people living in war-torn areas exhibit moderate levels of PTG. Women are more prone to PTG than men; younger and older participants show higher levels of PTG, while middle-aged participants exhibit lower levels; and financial security increases PTG. Presence in Ukraine increases personal strength, while living outside of Ukraine increases the possibilities for new PTG strategies. Trauma exposure during the war does not increase levels of PTG.

    Esė analizuojamas Džeromo Seimūro Brunerio (Jerome Seymour Bruner) ir Džono Diujo (John Dewey) požiūris į aplinką, kurioje vyksta ugdymosi procesas, lyginamas konstruktyvizmo filosofijos krypties – pozityvizmo ir pragmatizmo – klasikų požiūris į ugdymą. Šie mokslininkai augo ir kūrė toje pačioje amerikietiškoje švietimo sistemoje, priešinosi to meto esančiai bihevioristinei ugdymo filosofijai, ieškojo naujų idėjų, tarkim, kaip mokytis iš patirties, per praktiką, kaip prasmingą veiklą nukreipti į mokymą(si), taip pat reformavo to meto švietimo sistemą. Atsižvelgiant į šiandienos aktualų – įtraukųjį – ugdymą, galima teigti, kad Dž. S. Brunerio idėjos – aktyvus mokinio mokymasis, spiralinis mokymasis ir pastoliavimas – yra aktualios ir prasmingos. Dž. Diujo mokykla – atvira, demokratiška, leidžianti skleistis ir augti kiekvienam, – turi būti „gyva“ tam, kad mokiniai išmoktų spręsti savo ar visuomenės problemas, su kuriomis susiduria ir mokykloje, ir už jos ribų. Čia prasmingai siejasi ir Marijos Lukšienės išsakytas teiginys, kad reikia kurti atvirą žmogų, o per jį – atvirą kultūrą. Kultūros ir žmogaus atvirumas neatskiriamas nuo demokratiškumo (Lukšienė, 2013).

    Identity formation is an important developmental process during adolescence. The inter- play between adolescents’ gender identity, loneliness, and body dissatisfaction is a complex and multifaceted phenomenon. Adolescent gender identity issues are thought to be related to loneliness, and body dissatisfaction is a risk factor for greater loneliness. It can be hypothe- sized that adolescents experiencing gender identity issues could feel lonelier when they have greater body dissatisfaction. The present study addresses the following two research questions: (1) Are adolescents’ (both girls and boys) gender identities associated with loneliness, body dissatisfaction, and fear of negative appearance evaluation? (2) Does body dissatisfaction and fear of negative appearance evaluation mediate between adolescents’ gender identity and loneliness, and does this differ for girls and boys? The sample consists of 211 adolescents (54.5% girls) aged 15–17 (Mage = 16.20) from five secondary schools in Vilnius. Adolescent gender identity was measured using the Gender Identity/Gender Dysphoria Questionnaire for Adolescents and Adults (GIDYQ-AA); body dissatisfaction was established using the Body Shape Questionnaire (BSQ); loneliness was established using the UCLA Loneliness Scale; and apprehension regarding appearance evaluation was established using the Fear of Negative Appearance Evaluation Scale (FNAES). The results show that the gender identity of both girls and boys is negatively related to loneliness, body dissatisfaction, and fear of negative appea- rance evaluation. The results also revealed that the association between gender identity and loneliness was mediated by body dissatisfaction, and that the association between body dis- satisfaction and loneliness was stronger for boys than for girls. However, fear of negative ap- pearance evaluation does not mediate the association between gender identity and loneliness. These results illustrate the importance of examining adolescents’ gender differences regarding body dissatisfaction, loneliness, and gender identity, especially the experiences of boys regar- ding body dissatisfaction.

    Effective regulation of the labour market depends to a large extent on the quality of public administration. The Covid-19 pandemic highlighted the problem of unemployment in regions, which led to the spread of the shadow economy. The article aims to research the relationship between the unemployment rate and the shadow economy in Lithuanian regions over the period 2000-2019, to reveal the regional disparities in terms of the above-mentioned economic variables and submit recommendations to municipal authorities on how to reduce the strength of the relationship under consideration. Pearson and MCD correlation coefficients revealed that the relationship between the unemployment rate and the shadow economy is negative in all Lithuanian regions. An increase/decrease in the unemployment rate leads to a decrease/increase in the size of the shadow economy. The hypothesis proposing that “the municipalities with a high unemployment rate tend to have a stronger relationship with the size of the shadow economy” was only partly confirmed. The strongest relationships between the unemployment rate and the size of the shadow economy were found in Visaginas and Marijampolė municipalities, meanwhile only the calculated median values indicated that the unemployment rate in Visaginas amounted to 11.8 percent, and in Marijampolė – to 11.2 percent over the period under consideration. The two above- mentioned municipalities are among the municipalities with the highest unemployment rate, but lag behind Lazdynai (15 percent), Ignalina (14.9 percent.), Kalvarija (14.6 percent), Akmenė (14.5 percent), Jurbarkas (14 percent), and Zarasai (14 percent) municipalities. Considering the results, cooperation between the Employment Service and Lithuanian municipalities should be improved with a view to identifying whether a p erson registered with the Employment Service has applied to a municipality for social support; the State Labour Inspectorate, the Employment Service and the State Tax Inspectorate should also improve their cooperation to establish the principles for exchange of the data on the activities of the labour force assigned to risk groups.
