What’s it about?
In this article, I describe the spreading of psychological clinics in Japan by way of a school counselling system implemented to treat truant adolescents and their families. This investigation sheds light on the complex network of associations and certifications, along with details about contemporary Japanese clinicians, how they deal with institutional and patient-related difficulties, and how psychological clinics spread while counselling adolescents.
Why is it important?
One of the goals of this study is to discover a phenomenon that has never been mentioned in existing literature: Japanese high-school dropouts are abandoned by society. Countermeasures to strengthen Japan’s student counselling system are proposed.
