Abstract:


A model of psychological accompaniment designed and applied at the Human Development Center for the Community (CEDEHC in Spanish) of De La Salle Bajío University. It's conceptually based on five theoretical approximations: Human Potential Development, The Person Centered Approach, Existential Psychotherapy, Gestalt and Transactional Analysis. It's implemented by young psychology practitioners under a brief therapy approach of approximately twelve sessions. This study shows the pretest-posttest of the Personal Orientation Inventory (POI) results in 36 persons that received psychological accompaniment under this model. Significant differences were found in the 12 scales, supporting the hypothesis that the psychological accompaniment model had a positive effect in the participants' POI profile; moreover, the probabilities that the proposed model would meet it's two main objectives, which are educating students in a humanistic standpoint and providing an effective support to those who go to the center seeking psychological help, are strengthened.
