Counselling Students A Psychodynamic Perspective by Ravi Rana

Counselling Students: A Psychodynamic Perspective delivers an introduction to the main psychological and developmental factors that affect students and how these typically influence and shape their experiences at university. Using a psychodynamic model, it provides a clear account, rich in illustrations, of the various emotional and developmental issues that underlie the problems that students encounter and the role of counselling in dealing with these problems. The book will be particularly helpful to individuals with a personal or professional interest in student welfare who wish to gain a deeper understanding of the psychological issues that affect the development and well being of students.


'Dr Rana provides a rich store of material which comes from her talent to explain and make things of great complexity clear in simple straightforward language. I am sure I shall return to this book for inspiration on many a future occasion.' - Craig McDevitt, Head of Student Counselling, University of Edinburgh and Chair of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Association for University and College Counselling Newsletter & Journal 'Ideal reading for anyone from fellow professionals to parents, who would like a greater understanding of the way that psychodynamic counsellors in university settings approach their work with individual students.' - Kitty Warburton, Counsellor, De Montford University, Bedford. Association for University and College Counselling Newsletter & Journal'
