Abstract

Examined changes in user service demand at a college-based peer counseling center. Data from 8,469 contacts that occurred over a 7-yr (1970-1977) period revealed that following an initial 2-yr period of dramatic growth, service demand peaked in 1972-1973 and declined by nearly 25% in each of the following 4 yrs. More detailed analyses describe changes in both absolute and relative frequency of demand for services, mode of access to services, and types of problems presented by males and females. The question of whether this type of service continues to best meet existing needs of the target population is raised. (3 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
