Academic Activities
1. Kyushu University is entering the final stage of integrated moving to the new campus in Fukuoka city. Psycho Retreat will also move to a new campus in two years. In this paper, we report the overview of Psycho Retreat activities in Kyushu University in the view point of relocation, program and members reaction. We discuss how to transplant the Psycho Retreat function with more than 30 years' experience in activity from the old campus to the new campus. Also, We consider a prospect on how to develop Psycho Retreat activities on the new campus.
2. In this paper, we address an overview of CAS and introduce current information about self-evaluation by CAS at ACPA 2016 annual meeting. Three CAS presentations at the annual meeting refer to the vision and mission of CAS, 6 Student Learning and Development Outcome Domains, the learning outcomes assessment across 16 learning and development domains, the principle of CAS standard and so on. Then, we summarize and examine whether CAS can be used for evaluation of college counseling activities and programs in Japan. Some issues are become clear, for example, cooperation with IACS standards, cultural differences. It is needed that many studies on evaluation methods college counseling in Japan will be conducted in the future.
3. 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. 森川友子, 永野浩二, 福盛 英明, 平井達也, Development of revised versions of the focusing manner scales; FMS-18 and FMS-12, WAPCIPC, 2016.07, We have developed the Focusing Manner Scale (FMS), which is for measuring the degree to which one has focusing attitudes in his/her daily life (Fukumori&Morikawa,2003). Since then, FMS has been used in many research studies in Japan. However, in some studies, it was indicated that FMS may have some issues such as; 1) several items didn’t belong to any factor, 2) the third factor had only three items, and so on.
Thus, in this study we developed revised versions of the focusing manner scales. Data was collected from undergraduate students (n=348, 18-25 years). It seemed to consist of three factors “attention,” “acceptance,” and “distance.” Examples of each factor are as follows. Attention: “I try to pay attention to my inner experiences even when I cannot gasp my feelings clearly.” Acceptance: “I tend to express myself while trusting my feeling.” Distance: “When I have some concerns in my life, I try to take a distance from them” Then, the highest loading 6 items from each factor were selected to compose the new version of FMS, called “FMS-18”. We also create a short version of FMS-18, called “FMS-12”.
The internal consistency of the each factor of the FMS-18 proved to be adequate (a=.818-730), so was FMS-12 (a=.752- 645). In addition, the three factors of FMS-18, FMS-12 had good test-retest reliability within a month period. Correlational analysis for validity veri cation showed that daily focusing attitudes, measured by FMS-18 and FMS-12, were related
to authenticity (Linley,2008), subjective well-being(Nishida,2000).We also try to portrait each factor’s function for subjective well-being and mental health..
2. 永野浩二, 平井達也, 福盛 英明, 森川友子, Relationships between focusing attitudes in daily lives and psychological stress responses, stress coping behaviors, and work motivation, WAPCIPC, 2016.07, FMS尺度を用いて、フォーカシング的態度とモチベーションについての調査研究の報告をおこなった。日常生活において自分自身の内面に適切な距離を保ちつつ触れ続け,体験を信頼し行動する人(FMS得点が高い人)は,ストレス対処行動を積極的に活用し、心理的ストレス反応が少なく,仕事へのモチベーションも高いことが示された。日常生活におけるフォーカシング的態度は、メンタルヘルスのセルフケアにおいて有効な態度であることが示唆された。.
