NOMURA Asuka, Ph.D.
I am interested in children's well-being and environment surrounding them. In previous studies, I have revealed that how children perceive their physical and psychological well-being, relationships with family, friends, and school teachers via the questionnaire, projective methods (sentence completion test, kinetic school drawing, and so on), and observation in the classroom. I am also participating in a collaborative study comparing the characteristics of well-being between Japanese and overseas children. In the future, I would like to promote research to clarify the characteristics of well-being in children who have some needs such as developmental disabilities, and think about what kind of psychological support is important for these children, their parents and teachers.
