The Development of Psychological Counselling for Youngsters in the Chinese Mainland

樊富珉(Fumin FAN)




Based on the literature on the development of psychological counselling for youngsters in the Chinese Mainland, this paper analysed and introduced the historical development of counselling in China in terms of stages. Furthermore, from a micro-perspective, the author examined its present as well as future development trends. Psychological counselling services for youngsters have developed rapidly in the Chinese Mainland, even though it started later than some other countries and regions. Borrowing from successful experiences in some regions, such as Hong Kong and Taiwan, coupled with a high demand for services, the development of psychological counselling in the Chinese Mainland should accelerate rapidly in the future.
