Do We Have To Know This for the Exam? A Guide to Coping in College.
This guide for college students discusses the psychological adjustments of late adolescence and skills and techniques for coping and developing interpersonal skills. The book is comprised of the following topics: caring relationships, sex ("Let's Talk about Sex" by Jacqueline Kansky), listening, self-awareness, self-esteem, criticism, confidence, motivation, coping with bad feelings, anxiety, anger, depression, creative coping, and pathways (life and career choices). The benefits of keeping a journal are discussed in an appendix, and a second appendix provides a chart of Jungian personality types and characteristics frequently associated with each type among young people. An index is also provided. (KM)
