Predicting Adjustment During the Transition to College: Alexithymia, Perceived Stress, and Psychological Symptoms
Abstract

Fifty-six incoming college students were assessed in a study of the contribution of alexithymia, stress, and psychological symptoms to college adjustment. Alexithymia predicted fall semester adjustment, suggesting that interventions aimed at encouraging awareness and discussion of emotions may improve academic and emotional well-being for students making the transition to college.
