Reflections on Individual Psychotherapy with University Students: What Seems to Work
Pinkerton, Rolffs; Talley, Joseph E.; Cooper, Stacie L.
Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, v23 n3 p153-171 2009
The authors offer reflections on what seems to work in individual psychotherapy with university students. Discussion centers around the topics of triage and disposition, referral, crisis intervention, stress management, open-ended psychotherapy, extratherapeutic factors, and the psychotherapy relationship. These observations are not intended to be a comprehensive review; rather, the effort is to stimulate interest and dialogue on this important subject. The authors draw on their experience in working in a university counseling service, psychotherapy research literature, and what has been learned from students served.
