Kotaro Umemura  |  Program-Specific Research Fellow  |  Clinical Psychology

I have been conducting a study on psychotherapy for adolescents, based on my clinical practice. In adolescence, which called "pupal period", a drastic transformation from "child" to "adult" progresses at various levels, therefore psychological symptoms and behavioral problems tend to develop in this period. My research purpose is to figure out what kind of perspectives and approaches are needed in the psychotherapy for adolescents suffering such problems, through considering "somatization" and "developmental disorder".
