The study aimed to assess the adaptive and maladaptive functioning of 250 young university female students in order to identify their main psychological problematic areas. Results showed that students who had asked for psychological help reported higher scores in several problematic areas than those who had never asked for psychological help. The results address the relevance of “Avoidant Personality Problems” that highly differentiate these two groups of students. Our data confirm the presence of adjustment problems in university students, giving local University Counselling Services indications about the main problematic areas of their target population.

Abstract

The study aimed to assess the adaptive and maladaptive functioning of 250 young university female students in order to identify their main psychological problematic areas. Results showed that students who had asked for psychological help reported higher scores in several problematic areas than those who had never asked for psychological help. The results address the relevance of “Avoidant Personality Problems” that highly differentiate these two groups of students. Our data confirm the presence of adjustment problems in university students, giving local University Counselling Services indications about the main problematic areas of their target population.
