Ready to fuel your creativity.
Professional fulfilment and individual psychological wellbeing are very closely intertwined. Recent research in psycho-social studies has shown that counselling fosters an awareness of personal wellbeing that is useful to achieve academic goals and therefor to successfully plan one’s career.
RUFA – Rome University of Fine Arts has set up a counselling service which is offered for free to students enrolled in any of its courses, regardless of their year of enrolment. The service helps students develop the tools they may need to react positively to life’s challenges; circumstances generally characterized by increased stress levels, poor concentration, creative block and performance anxiety.
The approach taken during the sessions is highly practical, focusing on objectives agreed upon together with the psychologist-psychotherapist. A cycle of sessions involves five 40-minute meetings. A detailed needs analysis is drafted during the first meeting through a semi-structured interview to assess the main intervention areas and aspects that need to be developed. For the following meetings reciprocity is crucial, as the student’s feedback is essential for effective progress to be made.
Having completed the cycle, participants may decide to continue with further follow-up meetings and resilience support. The service is run by psychologist-psychotherapist René Angeramo, (registration n. 15606-Board of Psychologists – Lazio Region), expert in school/career counselling.
