The Emotional Background to Learning: A University Experience
Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties, v9 n1 p70-76 2004
This article makes observations on the emotional and behavioural difficulties of university students. The rapid expansion of the higher education sector since the 1980s has brought an increased need for liaison between academics and university counsellors and other health professionals. Key tasks confronting students are separation from the family, the articulation of a sense of "self", and the internalization of knowledge. Depression and anxiety are the likely side-effects of undertaking these, but peer-group and tutorial support can assist the authentic growth that is the real goal of tertiary education.
