How Technology Is Influencing Families in Japan.
Kurato, Yoshiya
Before making determinations about counseling people who have been harmed by technology, counselors need to identify the problems and symptoms. The paper states that this approach is similar to what occurs with other family counseling issues. The only difference noted is that this counseling is more focused on what happens inside families from a family therapeutic point of view, not only paying attention to those clients who are harmed but also to the family systems in which the problems or symptoms occur. The paper stresses the importance of attending to those who feel they are not catching up with the constant and rapid change in technology. Listening with simple acceptance is an effective technique for those who have a fear of micro-electronic systems. For those tired of technology, a trip to a natural setting is helpful. The stress management model used for teacher burnout is useful for clients who have stress and depression. The model contains a recognition stage, contact stage, and insight stage that helps clients identify the degree of stress, aids in discovering the meaning of their struggle, and helps them gather insight into their experience. The paper particularly focuses on counseling Japanese high school students. (Author/JDM)
