A person is not just a collection of certain muscles, bones and a few liters of blood. Inside this shell hides a complex mechanism, which has not yet been studied by physicians and scientists. Psychiatrists are most aware of the human soul. They are able to penetrate into the depths of the subconscious and to analyze the secret desires and actions. One of the best recognized specialists in this field is Mikhail Vinogradov, a forensic psychiatrist with vast experience.

Mikhail Vinogradov, forensic psychiatrist: biography, personal life

Biography of the most famous psychiatrist of Russia: briefly about the main thing

Mikhail Vinogradov is an extraordinary person, although his professional career began quite trivially and usually. He was born in a simple Moscow family in 1938. Then no one would have thought that this boy was the future well-known expert in the field of parapsychology, Mikhail Vinogradov. His biography before entering the university was no different from most Soviet adolescents: a carefree childhood, successful school and easy entry to the university.

Studying at the First Medical Institute was given to him very simply and defined further specialization, which became a matter of life. In the first year he was an ordinary student, but according to an interview given by Mikhail Vinogradov, his date of birth as a psychiatrist is known - this is a transfer from the department of surgery in the psychiatry department. From this moment on, this science became his love and the subject of close study.

Mikhail Vinogradov is a psychiatrist whose personal life is little known. The professor does not like to spread this topic to journalists and on television. More known for his scientific work and development in the field of psychiatry.

Fascination with forensics: how it all began?

As Mikhail Vinogradov himself argued, the family had a very strong influence on him. Parents, who are people with an active lifestyle, have taught the boy to work from early childhood. While still a schoolboy, he was working on writing articles for the Moskovsky Komsomolets newspaper. Mikhail Vinogradov was a very talented freelancer and received good fees for his work. Even then, some of his articles were related to the characterization of criminal events.

Since childhood, Vinogradov, Mikhail Viktorovich was interested in medicine and saw his future in surgery. Therefore, no doubt, enrolling in the First Moscow Medical Institute.

Years of study at the institute

During his studies, the head of the surgical circle suggested that the young Vinogradov be offered to study the method of hypnosis. As a result, getting to the department of psychiatry, Mikhail Viktorovich literally fell ill with this interesting discipline and practically plunged into the study of the personality of a person.

In Soviet times, studies were conducted to identify people with special inclinations and determine how they can be useful to society. He worked with people like Juna Davitashvili and Rosa Kuleshov. Experiments on the susceptibility of people to hypnosis at a distance produced a sensational effect in Soviet society.

Mikhail Vinogradov decided to continue his studies and began to improve in many areas of psychiatry. He studied the peculiarities of personal behavior in extreme situations, analyzed extrasensory techniques and worked on the methodology for creating a psychological portrait of a criminal. In parallel, he participated as a hypnologist in a variety of experiments.

“Center for psycho-physiological research” in the Ministry of Internal Affairs

Mikhail Vinogradov actively collaborated with law enforcement agencies of our country. He dealt with the problems of the Interior Ministry in the selection of personnel. Being an excellent psychiatrist, he could compose a psychological portrait of candidates and even predict their further changes after several years of work in the structure of the Ministry of Internal Affairs. Vinogradov also developed his own methods and tests that can be used in the work of the special services. With the help of these developments, which are relevant and at the moment, it is possible to assess the expediency of recruiting and working with a person of any intellectual level and psychological warehouse.

Mikhail Vinogradov, a psychiatrist-criminologist, became the first person to bring a polygraph into our country and introduced it into the work of the Soviet special services. In parallel, he continued his interesting work on extrasensory perception and wrote several scientific papers on this topic.

“Emergency Assistance Team at Mass Disaster and Natural Disaster Locations”

As a specialist, Vinogradov was very interested in human behavior in emergency situations. Under his leadership, an organization was created, which became the prototype of the Ministry of Emergency Situations. He and his specialists worked in disaster areas around the world.

He had to work in Spitak, Iran and the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. Everywhere, Vinogradov tried to help people and bring them out of the state of shock caused by the terrible events that occurred in their lives. For the first time in the practice of such actions psychics began to be attracted. These people were personally tested by Mikhail Vinogradov, and no one had any doubts about their abilities. People with unusual abilities helped in the search for victims and the removal of post-traumatic syndrome. For this work, Mikhail Viktorovich received government awards.

Creating a psychological portrait of a maniac: Vinogradov technique

Vinogradov became the largest specialist in the study of the psychology of people with obsessive ideas. Since 2000, he began to develop a methodology for identifying manic tendencies and drawing up a psychological portrait of a criminal based on the already known crime pattern. These works allowed Vinogradov to be involved in the investigation of especially sensational crimes as a profiler. Mikhail Viktorovich is a frequent guest on various TV shows, during one of them he managed to create a psychological portrait of a maniac on the air. In the future, these data contributed to the capture of the offender.

Vinogradov is often invited as an adviser to the Public Council of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Federal Security Service of Russia. Collaborates with the government on terrorism.

“League of psychics of the Russian Federation”

In 2009, Vinogradov became the founder of the “League of Psychics of the Russian Federation”. This organization was non-profit and united many people with paranormal abilities. The work in this field as a psychiatrist has never been interrupted; he wrote several scientific papers on the nature of extrasensory perception.

At the moment, any person who claims to be a psychic can apply to the “League of Psychics of the Russian Federation” and be tested. Specialists of this association are often attracted by employees of the Ministry of Internal Affairs as assistants in the detection of particularly complex crimes. Most often they are attracted to search for serial maniacs.

“The Battle of Psychics” is a special milestone in the life of Mikhail Vinogradov

It is worth noting that the opinion of Vinogradov was decisive in many trials. He could accurately tell about the abilities of each of the participants of the show. Moreover, numerous winners of the battle still cooperate with Vinogradov and help the police in the most hopeless cases.

Why did Mikhail Vinogradov leave the “Battle of the Psychics”?

The spectators fell in love with the most famous psychiatrist of Russia thanks to the “Battle of Psychics” program and were very much waiting for each release of the program. But in the last seasons Vinogradov began to appear extremely rarely, and the viewer became worried. There were rumors in the media about discord between the producers of the show and the permanent consultant. Many viewers noticed that Mikhail Vinogradov began to give a very negative assessment of the activities of psychics on the program.

In fact, Mikhail Viktorovich did not leave the program, and due to his phenomenal employment, he began to participate only in some issues with the most difficult cases. For the most part, these are criminal histories where not only an assessment of the activities of the participants in the “Battle of psychics” is necessary, but also the compilation of a psychological image of the alleged offender. To the delight of fans, there are quite a few such stories. Therefore, Mikhail Viktorovich so rarely now appears on the screen of the channel “TNT” in the framework of a popular program.

“Center for Legal and Psychological Assistance in Extreme Situations”

Long years of working with psychics of different levels left their mark on Mikhail Vinogradov. Therefore, having accumulated sufficient experience in this area, and acquiring a certain circle of familiar people involved in providing assistance in critical situations, the psychiatrist has thought about creating some kind of organization that helps people and government bodies. Thus, the center of Mikhail Viktorovich Vinogradov appeared. Specialists for work in an organization are selected personally by Vinogradov, more than half of them are people with paranormal abilities.

Vinogradov Center is engaged in solving many problems of the human person. These are addressed in the case of family problems or people who have lost their loved ones. Employees of the center assist the authorities in solving crimes and searching for missing people. In many cases, the process of working with psychics is documented on a video camera.

Naturally, the provision of services by the center costs money. In the case of a private appeal, the reception of Professor Vinogradov will cost about ten thousand rubles. According to appeals from the bodies of the Ministry of Internal Affairs work is carried out absolutely free of charge.

In addition to receiving help in a difficult situation, clients can take part in Vinogradov’s seminars and lectures. For a certain category of people, these seminars became the most effective help that radically changed their lives.

Professor Vinogradov leaves no work on the study of extrasensory perception. Together with the staff of his center, he continues to create new methods and options for testing people with paranormal abilities. On the basis of these tests, previously unknown activities of psychics are identified.
