Lo studio, ispirandosi agli interventi di expressive writing, ha implementato e valutato un intervento di orientamento universitario in itinere, finalizzato a supportare gli studenti nel delicato momento di valutazione e bilancio delle scelte compiute rispetto al corso di studi intrapreso e alla realtà del contesto educativo universitario. Venti studenti hanno compilato continuativamente per due settimane un diario degli eventi percepiti come significativi. I risultati confermano che i processi narrativi così attivati elicitano processi di meaning making e facilitano l’elaborazione delle esperienze problematiche.


Keywords: Orientamento universitario, expressive writing, narrative vocational identity, dimensioni emotive.
