This article reflects the concepts of psychological boundaries of personality and victimization in the context of the socio-psychological processes. There are various approaches to understanding the term “border” and the variety of typological characteristics of borders, their significance in the psyche. The article considers the influence of the psychological trauma of the personality and the violation of the separation process that lead to the formation of a specific set of victim traits and personality deformities, to the emergence of negative attitudes, victim values, which limits the functional capabilities of psychological boundaries. Victimization is considered as a system property of the individual, fixed in the habitual forms of behavior that cause the potential or real predisposition of the person to become a victim. This article study is given in which the hypothesis is confirmed that the violation of psychological boundaries is directly related to the inability of the individual to differentiate the distance in interactions, to regulate the psychological comfort of his being, which undoubtedly leads to victimization of the person and fixing it in the victim status.
