Under the leadership of Marmara University’s Psychological Counseling and Guidance, Department’s Application Research Center (MARPAM), the Psychological Counseling and Guidance in Universities Symposium will be carried out at the international level with a broader scope than the 8th Psychological Counseling and Guidance in Universities Symposium held at Anadolu University. During our congress, we aim to discuss and evaluate the psychological counseling services provided in higher education institutions in line with global and local requirements, to discuss the current issues and to share studies carried out within this scope. In addition to this, we plan to organize workshops for psychological counseling and guidance centers connected to universities, as well as to organize presentations on this subject.

We believe our congress, which will be discussed through different opinions and approaches in an environment enriched by the valuable contributions of our participants at national and international levels, will contribute to the development and improvement of psychological counseling and guidance services that aim to support the personal, social, and academic development of university students.
