Aコース「フォーカシング的 ♡ 子どもの気持への寄り添い方」(講師:矢野キエ)

 子ども自身の気持ちや、大人自身の気持の在り様を変化させ、新しい関係を生む可能性のある“ミラーリング”。期待(お仕着せでない)や希望をもって子どもと関わりたいものですが、その一助になるかも。そして、子どもの気持ちも大人の気持ちも大切にしつつ、気持ちに寄り添う関わりへとつながるかもしれません。感じるところから行う“ミラーリング”を体験してみましょう。
講師自己紹介
 赤ちゃんを見ると生命の不思議さを感じます。現在は、子どもが自分をどのように表現するか、大人は子どもの表現をどのように支え促すかについて関心をもっています。大阪キリスト教短期大学、こどもフォーカシング・アソシエイツ代表、“こども”を語ろうフォーカシング・カフェ主催メンバー、元ナースリー主催。

 

Bコース「傾聴とフォーカシング」(講師:堀尾直美)

 傾聴とフォーカシングの関係についてお話しし、フォーカシングの考え方を取り入れた傾聴がどのようなもので、フォーカシングを学ぶことが傾聴にどんなふうに益するか、なるべく体験できるようなプログラムにしたいと思っています。ご一緒にチャレンジしてみませんか。実習では、参加者同士でペアやグループになり、カードを用いてご自分が感じることを話したり聴いたりする予定です。フォーカシングについての学習歴は問いません。
講師自己紹介

Cコース「支援者のためのフォーカシング〜セラピスト・フォーカシング〜」(講師:吉良安之)

 支援を行うなかで、支援者の内面にはいろんな体験が生じます。時には、重くハードな気持ちが起こることもあると思います。このワークショップでは、フォーカシングを用いて支援者が自分の体験から少し距離をとりながらゆっくり味わう方法を紹介します。心理臨床領域、教育領域、医療領域などで支援の仕事をされている方のご参加をお待ちします。あるいは、子育て中の方(子どもとの関わりの体験を整理したいなど)の参加も歓迎します。
講師自己紹介
 九州大学で学生相談の仕事をしています。カウンセラーとして、フォーカシングの体験の仕方で相手に接することが面接でのやりとりを深めるうえで役立つことを経験してきました。それをもとに、支援者が面接での体験を吟味する方法としてセラピスト・フォーカシングを考案し、実践しています。

 

Dコース「インタラクティブ・フォーカシング」(講師:前田満寿美・伊藤三枝子)

 インタラクティブ・フォーカシングは、人と人との相互作用(インタラクション)を大切にしたフォーカシングで、「インタラクティブ・リスニング」とも言われ、自身の内面にも相手の内面にも「共感」できる傾聴力が身につきます。気持ちを伝え合う交流を通して良好な人間関係を築くためにも効果的な訓練法です。このワークショップは、主にステップ・バイ・ステップの実習をする体験学習の場です。フォーカシング未経験者も歓迎です。

Focusing in Japan

The Focuser’s Focus, Vol.20, No.2, summer Issue 2017

Focusing in Japan

Edited by Mieko Osawa
 (Focusing Project, Certifying Coordinator)

*The Japanese edition is here.

 
Eugene Gendlin and Mary Hendriks visited Japan twice, once in 1978 and next in 1987.

Long before in 1963, Takao Murase visited Gendlin in Madison, Wisconsin and translated his main articles including “A Theory of Personality Change” and published as a book called “Experiencing and Psychotherapy” in 1964, revised in 1966.

In 1973, Shoji Murayama visited Gendlin at Chicago University, and introduced Changes Group and Focusing Manuals to Japan.

In Japan, in 50s and 60s, Carl Rogers gave enormous influence on psychologists, counselors and therapists all over Japan and eventually people got interested in the new theories and methods by Eugene Gendlin.

In 1978, Gendlin was invited as a keynote speaker for the 42 Conference of Japan Psychology Association at Kyushu University and gave workshops in Fukuoka, Kyoto and Tokyo.

Gendlin’s “Focusing” of Bantam Books was translated into Japanese in 1982 by Shoji Murayama, Haruo Tsuru and Takao Murase. (“Focusing-Oriented Psychotherapy” was translated by Takao Murase, Akira Ikemi, Mako Hikasa etc. in 1998.)

In 1978, Takeo Tsutsui met Gendlin in Chicago and got permission to translate “Experiencing and the Creation of Meaning” (1963), and the translation came out on 1993.

In 1980, Akira Ikemi came back from Chicago finished MA with Gene Gendlin and joined to Kyushu group, where people with Shoji Murayama of Kyushu University began to study and practice Focusing more and more, set up Japan Focusing Society and started a Journal called “Focusing Forum” in 1983. Meanwhile many Focusing networks appeared in many areas in Japan.

Gendlin and Mary Hendriks were invited to Japan again in 1987, gave advanced workshops with demonstrations including dream works and open symposium, gave a lot of influence to Focusing in Clinical Practice in Japan.  This big project was edited into a book, “Focusing Seminar” by Shoji Murayama in 1991.

The first visit by Ann Weiser Cornell was in 1994. Her workshops were planned in different areas in Japan, Kyushu (Fukuoka), Kansai (near Osaka), Tokai (Nagoya) and Tokyo. This made the Focusing map in Japan clearly. Ann Weiser Cornell came to Japan 8 times and gave many workshops in many areas in Japan. We still love her “The Focusing Student’s Manual and Guide’s Manual Third Edition” published in 1993 and translated into Japanese in 1996.

Japan Focusing Association was set up in 1997 and we are having annual meetings and Focusers gatherings every year in different areas in Japan. The Focusing journal “The Focuser’s Focus”   started in 1998, coming out every 3 months, 4 times a year.

In 1998, Gendlin’s third visit was planned, but he couldn’t come because of the car accident and Mary Hendriks came as a substitute for Gendlin for the big conference of The Association of Japanese Clinical Psychology in Nagoya. Here she planned with Shoji Murayama, Takao Murase, Akira Ikemi to appoint new Certifying Coordinators and Trainers from The Focusing Institute.

Now we have 1 Honorary Member, 14 Certifying Coordinators, 4 Coordinators in Training and 130 Trainers.

 

Here is the map of CCs and CNTs in Japan.

Mako Hikasa, CC in 1998.
Naomi Horio, CNT in 2011, CC in 2014.
Nisseiken, Inc. (Psychotechnological Institute of Japan, Inc.)

Nisseiken (Nisseiken, Inc.) is a private psychology services company which started soon after the World War II, and now its office is located near the emperor’s palace in the center of Tokyo.   Originally being a reliable psychological testing company, in 1970’s it became one of the centers of Person-Centered Approach practices in eastern Japan and in 1990’s became a center of Focusing which has produced many of Focusing practitioners and professionals.   Late Haruo Tsuru started Focusing Seminar at Nisseiken in 1983.  In 1988 Focusing seminar by late Takao Murase started and joined by Teruyuki Chikada in 1992 and by Mako Hikasa in 1995.

In 1996, Chikada and Hikasa succeeded Murase’s seminar and expanded it into two level courses, Focusing Basic course and Advanced course.  Later they have further expanded into many more levels and varieties.  From these courses many Focusing communities, Japanese version of “Changes” group, which are the meeting place for Focusing practice, are created and became nests for expanding Focusing activities.

Chikada and Hikasa, along with fellow Focusing trainers, have taught in many Focusing workshops for different professional organizations and made Focusing a stable item in training seminars for helping professionals in Kanto area.  Hikasa invited many Focusing teachers from aboard, translated their books into Japanese, and encouraged Japanese Focusers to attend the International Focusing conferences.  With those activities, she bridged Japanese Focusers to the world-wide Focusing community.  Nisseiken Focusing courses have produced quite a few Focusing groups which eagerly practiced Interactive Focusing or Wholebody Focusing.  Some of the students have become internationally active teachers in those fields.

Naomi Horio was one of those students at Nisseiken seminars.  She has been very active in promoting Focusing by organizing many workshops featuring both nationally and internationally renowned Focusing teachers, keeping Focusing communities, teaching Focusing both in private sessions and as a workshop teacher for different institutions, including psychotherapist training at graduate schools.  She has been a key manager for Focusing courses in Nisseiken, working with Hikasa since 2011, and replaced Hikasa in 2015. Currently she is the president of Japan Focusing Association.

Koko Shiraiwa, TR in 1998, CC.

Logo-therapy of Viktor E. Frankl and Client-Centered Therapy of Carl R. Rogers which I learned from Fujio Tomoda has been my background as a psychotherapist. When I encountered the Experiencing theory by Gendlin in 1978 through his lectures and demonstrations, I was moved by the fact that what Tomoda taught us was the concept of felt sense. In 1980, Heizo Iwaya, Reiko Kawamura, Sumiko Inoue and myself organized Tokyo Focusing Institute and gave Focusing workshops for 10 years. We established the introductory style of bodywork named as Karada-hogushi, and published newsletters and the booklet of 10-year history of the institute. In 1990, I personally started Holistic Psychology Institute to convey Focusing for helping professionals and provide practice space for Listeners.

He worked as a clinical psychologist at a hospital in Nakano City for 32 years and recently he works Private Practice.

 

Tokai:

Yoshimi Ito, TR in 1993, CC in 2000.

When I was a graduate student of Nagoya University in October,1978, I encountered Dr. Gendlin’s special lecture “Experiential Therapy” and happily could participate Focusing Workshop by Gendlin and Mary Hendricks for the first time. Since then I have been working on research and practice of Focusing. I had a chance to study under Prof. Gendlin at University of Chicago from1993 to 1994 as a visiting professor. I got Ph. D in 1998 from Nagoya University by a study about Clearing a Space of Focusing. We have been giving Nagara-River Focusing Workshop for a long time, and I have been supervising Nagoya Focusing Community (NFC) for 18 years. At present, I’m hoping to build up Self-Help Focusing (SHF).

 

Katsuko Usui, TR in 1998, CC in 2015.

 

Kansai:

Akira Ikemi, Ph.D. TR, CO.  Professor, Kansai University Graduate School of Psychology.

Back in 1980, as I recall, Doralee Grindler had arranged the first Focusing Training Program at Professor Eugene Gendlin’s office at the University of Chicago. I attended this program, as I was a graduate student studying with Professor Gendlin at that time.  It was the year after the first edition of the book Focusing came out from Everest House.  There were no certificates at the time, so I cannot give the exact date when I completed this program.  Around 1995, sometime before or after the Great Hanshin Earthquake, Gene (Gendlin) had recommended me to become a Focusing Coordinator.  Again, there are no certificates for coordinators, so I cannot recall when it was, that I was appointed as a coordinator.  In college, I was a psychology and philosophy double major, so I got enchanted with Gene’s philosophy and psychotherapy theory, and I have taught people to hold fast to and think freshly from experiencing, in my clinical work, university and graduate school teachings, and workshops.  I have taught at universities in not only Japan but in the UK and Belgium.  I have presented workshops in Japan, USA, UK, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Greece, Italy, China and Hong Kong and Australia is my next destination.  I’ve written many books and journal articles in Japanese and English, as well as DVDs in English and Japanese.  My most recent book and article is now being translated into Chinese from Japanese and English.

Kyushu:

Shoji Murayama, HM (Honorary Member).

Looking Back of my 2 small contributions to the beginning stage of the development of Experiencing & Focusing in Japan. In 1978, I had a lucky chance to invite Gene Gendlin as a key note speaker for the 42 annual Conference of Japan Psychology Association at Kyushu University and he gave workshops in Fukuoka, Kyoto, Tokyo with Mary Hendricks. Since then, this practical focusing seed has been spreading, growing and blooming in Japan. Second, from Kyushu University, many CC and TR members and related therapists are grown up. They are Kira Yasuyuki, Tamura Ryuichi, Uchida Toshihiro, Morikawa Yuko, Fukumori Hideaki, Masui Takeshi, Tajima Seiichi, Ohishi Eiji. Now they are developing their own way of helping.

 

Yasuyuki Kira, TR in 1998, CC in

He had learned Focusing at Kyushu University under Shoji Murayama as a graduate student, and has been practicing counseling and psychotherapy based on the Experiencing theory. Meanwhile he realized that it was meaningful for the therapist to focus on his or her own implicit feeling at his practice and to be aware of its meaning explicitly. He has been practicing this method, named as “Therapist Focusing”. He and his colleague published a chapter about this method on a book as follows.

Kira,Y & Fukumori,H. Chap.8 The Significance of Focusing for the Therapist: Therapist focusing. Mikuni,M.(Ed.), The Person-Centered Approach in Japan: Blending a Western approach with Japanese culture. PCCS Books Ltd. Monmouth, UK. 131-145. 2015.

【テーマ】

フォーカシング・傾聴がアップデートされるひととき(仮)

【概要】

「傾聴・フォーカシングのペア・ワーク」を予定しております。

要点:フォーカシングはクライエントの体験を記述したもの、すなわち、クライエントがフォーカシングをしている、これに対してセラピストは傾聴している。そこで、セラピスト目線だった Carl Rogers とクライエント目線だった Eugene Gendlin は対立することなく、共同してPerson-Centered Approach を築いていったのです。ですから、傾聴を理解するにしても、フォーカシングを理解するにしても、両側をセットで考える必要があります。Rogers-Gendlinの真髄を明らかにするこの考え方を最近「シカゴ・スタイルの傾聴」と呼ぶことにしました。当日はその一端を体験してみたいと思います。
