Well-being and psychological support

Since 2004, the Scuola Normale Superiore has availed itself of psychological support services by means of agreements and direct assignments for specialist services for the psychophysical well-being of its students.

The counselling and psychological support service offered by the Scuola:

  • provides an initial consultation (which can include several sessions) in which the situation is assessed, and the strategies to deal with the latter are set forth. Where possible and appropriate, the service takes charge of the student and an individual action plan is agreed on, defining schedules and reciprocal commitments. If the case is particularly problematic and complex, the student is sent to the competent territorial structures (preferably public ones);
  • the Scuola covers (financially) up to a maximum of 8 sessions per person,
  • it caters for different needs (different problems of differing complexity, needs of students from different cultures and countries);
  • it is coordinated with the other services of the Scuola intended for students (mainly teaching and student services, such as the career counselling service offered by the Placement service, as well as the tutoring service);
  • it integrates the action aimed at organizational well-being carried out by the CUG and completed by the Consigliera di Fiducia.

The counselling and psychological support service team includes:

  • Dr. Jacopo Piampiani - coordinator - psychologist and psychotherapist

To access the service, reserved for students of the Scuola only; you must arrange an appointment by writing to supporto.psicologico@sns.it .

Should you wish to choose one of the professionals in particular (the coordinator does not carry out consultancy activities), or if you want to mention your needs in the e-mail, please be assured that the dedicated account is managed only by the service team and the content of the e-mails is strictly confidential.

At the moment only remote consultations are possible, due to the safety measures related to the epidemiological emergency of COVID-19. Therefore, the sessions take place using SKYPE, following the instructions provided directly by the team in response to the e-mail requesting an appointment.

The online service follows the guidelines for psychological services provided remotely or online by the Consiglio dell’Ordine Nazionale degli Psicologi-CNOP (the Council of the National Order of Psychologists-CNOP) and arranged by the National Council in 2014 with Resolution No.23, implemented on March 3, 2017 with Resolution No. 12.
