Effective Group Treatment for Diverse Sources of Anxiety on a College Campus.
Crouse, Roy; Myszka, Michael
This paper proposes guidelines based on student development theory and offers practical suggestions for developing a campus-wide anxiety treatment program. The proposed model is designed to allow staff to set priorities and implement plans compatible with available resources. Three major program components are discussed: assessing needs, assessing resources, and developing and assessing interventions. In the section on needs assessment, strategies for locating stressed students and identifying environmental stressors, and for classifying stressors are outlined and discussed. The section on assessing resources identifies several sources of pre-packaged program materials which can be time-saving and cost-effective. The section on developing and assessing interventions discusses balancing needs and resources, and offers pointers for program planning, delivery, and evaluation. In the final section, the anxiety management program developed by the University Counseling Center of Colorado State University is presented as a program model. The appendices contain lists of university sources for locating and referring stressed students, signs of chronic stress in students, and examples of environmental stressors; a Hassles Scales for classifying the severity of problems and pressures; stress issues organized by Chickering's developmental vectors; examples of stressors and intervention approaches; and the Anxiety Management Services Intake Form.
