Obtaining peak performance in the transition to Higher Education: Support for the worried well, acutely anxious and seriously sluggish student
Tindle, Elizabeth (2008) Obtaining peak performance in the transition to Higher Education: Support for the worried well, acutely anxious and seriously sluggish student. Journal of the Australian and New Zealand Student Services Association, pp. 40-45.
Research suggests that students in their late teens and early twenties have not reached "identity formation" (James Marcia, 1969, 1980). The heightened anxiety and uncertainty about themselves and their future contribute to sometimes crippling fears emanating as anxiety, clinical depression and other mood disorders. This paper will explore some issues and suggest healthy ways of helping young people safely through these chaotic years and into a fulfilling career.
