≪Organizer Abstract≫
In recent years, mental health problems of children have attracted social attention in Japan.
These problems have various causes such as a poor parent-child relationship, difficulties in school life, or problems in friendship, and have negative consequences like aggressive behavior, social anxiety, and depression.
Cognitive behavioral approaches for psychological stress have been used to treat mental health problems in children.
For example, classroom-based stress management programs have been shown to be effective preventive interventions. However, research has also shown that not a few group interventions with an ambiguously introduced purpose are conducted.
The purpose of this symposium is to examine the current status and future outlook of cognitive behavioral approaches for children's mental health problems in Japan.
