The student is often exposed to biological, psychological and social difficulties and has to adapt to these limits. In an optimal situation this adjustment is successful: the student is healthy, in a state of “complete physical, mental and social well-being”1. Sometimes the family, the school and the university environment do not respect the emotional needs of the late adolescent or early adult student and resulting neurotic symptoms signify the conflict between the society and the individual.
