≪Organizer Abstract≫
College counseling is now considered a specialization within the field of student services in university or college as well as the larger professional domain of counseling. Theories and methods regarding the practice of college counseling are constantly being developed to suit cultural differences, student characteristics, and social demands. In this symposium, college counselors from three countries, the United Kingdom, China, and Japan, are brought together to discuss: 1) Current psychological issues or problems facing students in these countries; 2) how to understand and assess these students psychologically (as well as psychiatrically for some); and 3) how to support them psychologically. The similarity and difference of college counseling among these countries will be discussed in order to gain a deeper insight into the future of college counseling.
