Psychological Problems among College Students
No one can have failed to notice the fact that psychological problems are becoming serious among college students. Reports are often heard that some collegians committed suicide or murdered their roommates. Typical examples include the case of a Chinese student named Ma Jiajue and that of a Korean student studying in the U.S.
Then what are the causes of these problems among college students? The following might be some of the sources of these young men and women’s troubles. First, as young adults, most of them are at the stage of personality formation and are quite sensitive to their surroundings. Secondly, they are at a critical point of personal development and are facing pressure from various aspects: love, academy, job-seeking and so on. To make things worse, most of them are living off home and without their parents care and supervision.
To solve the problems for these young people, it is essential that the channel of communication be kept open among students, between students and their superintendents as well as between students and their parents. Besides, psychological counseling should be enhanced and rendered to problem students in time. Only with these measures taken can we expect sound growth of college students.
