1st workshop of Scientific Research on Trans-professional Literacy -- Dialogue among an Industrial Physician, a Psychiatrist, and a Labor Law Scholar

2011-8-26 (Fri) 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.

The first workshop of Scientific Research on Trans-professional Literacy: Dialogue among an Industrial Physician, a Psychiatrist, and a Labor Law Scholar will be held on Friday, August 26.

Some of our problems are complex and need response from a team of specialists in a variety of fields. For example, if specialists such as doctors, engineers, and legal professionals are to deal with a problem in concert, cross-disciplinary literacy and communication skills are necessary.

This research under Grants-in-Aid for Scientific Research (project leader: MITSUNARI Kenji, Professor, Graduate School of Law and Politics) is a research and education project seeking ways to nurture such personnel.

In this workshop, an industrial physician, a psychiatrist, and a labor law scholar will discuss anticipated cases of laborers with mental health problems in order to examine the feasibility of cross-disciplinary understanding.

Interested individuals are welcome to attend.


Lecturers:

  • MIYAMOTO Toshiaki, Chief Doctor (industrial physician), Kimitsu Works, Nippon Steel Corporation
  • SHIRAHASE Jyouichirou, full-time lecturer, Department of Neuropsychiatry, School of Medicine, Keio University
  • MISHIBA Takenori, Associate professor, School of Law, Kinki University
