Experience of Psychoeduation in Schools and Its Effect on University Students' Adjustment.


The aims of this study were twofold. One was to comprehend the extent of experience to which university students had psychoeducation in Japanese elementary, junior high and high schools. The other was to explore relations between that experience and students' present adjustment. Participants were 656 university students who completed a series of questionnaires. The results indicated as follows: University students experienced a variety of psychoeducation in elementary, junior high and high schools; approximately 70% of students had the psychoeducation acknowledged in the ministry's curriculum guideline or its notification; and the psychoeducation directly treating stress and emotions was less likely to be experienced. It appears that specific types of psychoeducation such as self-esteem education and depression/suicidal prevention education that students have experienced associated with better adjustment than others did. Especially, the experience in elementary schools showed stronger relationships to the adjustment than one in high schools
