Education: Mapping Out Recurring Research Themes and Gaps Using a Scoping Review Methodology

Syifaa Syahirah, Mohammad Salmi  Heriot-Watt University, Malaysia

For many students, adjusting to college life is difficult. Students may struggle with exposure to new types of stress and social obligations, as well as with finding a sense of community. Several studies indicate that coaching psychology interventions help students attain higher levels of functioning and wellbeing. However, there is a difference of opinion as to whether coaching psychology is an appropriate in an educational setting. This scoping review sought to establish the state of the research literature on coaching psychology interventions in higher education and to identify gaps/conceptual limitations in the field. Our evidence suggests that coaching psychology interventions do contribute to student’s psychological wellbeing.
