[Research News] Culture-friendly Therapies for Treating Anxiety and Depression in Japanese Youth
Shin-ichi Ishikawa, professor at the Faculty of Psychology, and his colleagues summarize how cognitive-behavioral therapies have been successfully adapted and implemented for youth in Japan.
Although cognitive-behavioral therapies (CBT) have grown in popularity globally, they face barriers to implementation outside Western countries. In a new article, Ishikawa and his colleagues discuss that CBT is being successfully used to treat anxiety disorder and depression among the country’s youth. They also identified the most successful CBT programs and specific strategies for implementing CBT programs in non-Western cultures to improve the quality of life of youth suffering from mental illnesses.
