Academic Activities
1. It is important that the higher education system has developed standards of evaluating education, but there are only a few standards for evaluating student affairs, or for evaluating student counseling in higher educational settings in Japan. Therefore, developed tool for self evaluation that is named, “The Inventory for Developing Counseling Services in Japanese Universities and colleges”(in Japanese, Gakuseisoudan Kikan Jujitsu Image Hyou), for use in universities and college counseling services in Japan, which is based on data of case studies for the development of substantial counseling services for Higher education. Using this inventory, many counseling centers can evaluate the level of each aspect of their counseling services and consider their vision of development and what to do. For example, the mission and the statement of the organization, counseling services offered, its roles and functions, budget, personnel, and staff certification, among others. An example of evaluation using this inventory is introduced. We have discussed the usefulness of self-evaluation using this inventory in Universities and College Counseling Services in Japan..
1. It has been more than 30 years since experiential approach and person-centered approach were introduced to Japan. A number of Focusing group sessions were conducted in Japan since then. We encountered person-centered approach, experiential approach and Focusing about 20 years ago. And we have come to actually feel that it is very important for us to live the way of life based on experiential approach and person-centered approach and Focusing are effective in Japan. However, it is difficult for us to along with and "grasp" that humanistic way of living experientially over learning skills of Focusing.In our poster presentation on PCE2006(Potsdam), our qualitative research addressed that a hypothesis was developed that the warm positive atmosphere in the workshop promoted learning of Focusing, resulting in participants' positive feelings and their needs for doing Focusing again. It was indicated that the warm positive atmosphere correlates with other elements of the workshop, such as the structure of the program and staffs' attitudes. In this presentation, the presenters introduce and demonstrate a process of our experiential approach program in a small group of Focusing for person who are interested in counseling and Focusing in Japan. First, we will address how “the warm positive atmosphere” facilitates Focusing group sessions. Second, the presenters introduce how to teach Focusing using the cartoon “Learning Focusing with Manga (cartoon)“ (Murayama, Fukumori, and Morikawa ,2005). Finally, the researchers address a new model of Japanese Focusing group sessions which is culturally more appropriate for Japanese participants. .
