If We Open the Door, How Long Will They Stay? The Use of Personal Counseling in a Small College
Lunardi, Pamela M.; Webb, Richard E.; Widseth, Jane C.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v21 n2 p15-24 Nov 2006
The focus of this brief report about one small college's experience in providing personal counseling and psychotherapy to its students is on how the students used the services over their, generally, four years of matriculation. The 404 student users of counseling services from six classes of graduating students had an average number of sessions over their entire college career of 15.5 while the mean number of sessions was 9, and the mode, 1, and the range 1-126. The authors hope this report will serve as a call for more comprehensive surveys to include this new variable.
