- The aim of this paper is to solve or alleviate the binge drinking problem of university students from a psychological point of view. Traditionally, people were used to accepting medical interventions to alleviate their problems. But in this paper, the author considered the effects alcohol misuse makes on the university students, examined how psychological counseling helps with alcohol misused adolescents, explained the best approach, and evaluated how effective psychological counseling is for such young drinkers. The results demonstrate that the alcohol-misuse problem of university students can make a series of negative effects on individuals, groups and the society, and it can be alleviated through counseling approaches effectively. Generally, the client-centered approach is the most effective method for counseling young drinkers, while the solution-focus approach and cognitive-behavior therapy are also helpful. It is recommended that further research could focus on the application of a combination of different counseling approaches for university students.
