Research Overview

The mental well-being of humans involves a variety of factors, and the combination of these factors could deteriorate the mental health of anyone. My research interest is on the methods and processes of psychological assistance for people with poor mental well-being. More specific areas include: (1) processes of individual psychotherapy based on dynamic theory incorporating an eclectic approach; (2) problems of a psychotherapeutic approach to psychological trauma caused by disaster/abuse; (3) characteristics of support in the form of student counseling; and (4) the framework of group psychotherapy, its safety and its relationship with deeper interactions.
