At the beginning of the 20th century in the U.S., psychological
intervention one might say that have been born. This research
started from the following hypothesis: there is a correlation
between the awareness of the existence of counseling offices
and the degree of addressability to the services offered by
counseling offices. The method used was a questionnaire
survey (Alpha Cronbach coefficient is .790), applied on 207
students. The existence of the counselling office in the
university is unknown for 54.6% of students (113 subjects) and
there are 55.1% (114 subjects) who do not know that there is a
counselling office within the university, registering a
correlation of .657** (p-0.01). Due to not knowing about the
existence of this office and the services offered by it, the 152
subjects – there are 73.4% who never called the counselor, and
they come as a negative consequence, unfortunately. Out of 23
students - 11.1% very rarely addressed counselling services
and 16 students -7.7% rarely called the services of the
counseling office. Only 1 student - 0.5% and 3 students -1.4%
say they have very often or often turned to the counselling
office in their student life. A number of 12 students - 5.8%
declare that they have turned to the school counsellor every
now and then.
