SUGIOKA Masanori, Ph.D

Associate Professor

My special fields are student counseling and community psychology. Especially, I am interested in psychological problems in adolescence, such as social withdrawal, self- injury, suicidal behavior, and identity crisis. The main theme of my search is to explore the relatedness of people, including psychological dynamics, family system, and community.
I have ever been researching the ways to support ethnic minorities in Japan, and to prevent student suicide. My special interest now is crisis intervention to prevent student suicide and care for the surviving family members.
