|Profile|| From the perspective of life span development, I am exploring Japanese consciousness structure, child care, education and different cultures. In particular this is the first study in Japan on the consiousness of "Kigane". It is peculiar to Japanese people, and is a difficult concept to transfer into English.
In recent years, I have been studying career ladders for child care workers, training linked to them, and prevention of turnover. I am considering career ladder and training that support the growth process of child care workers. At the request of the local government, I advise child care workers at a nursery school as a psychological supervisor about children with developmental disabilities and concerns. I also recieve consultation from parents and child care workers. Their clinical experience is put to good use in my research and education. I am trying to do research that can be used in the field of child care.
