Second Annual Mental Health Services Research Seminar: Introduction to Japanese Morita Therapy

October 12, 2017

Morita therapy is an indigenous Japanese therapy characterized as a natural, ecological, and purposeful action-based therapy developed by the late Dr. Shoma Morita, around 1920. Just shy of a 100-years old, Morita therapy invites people to approach so-called “negative” feelings as a natural human response. It welcomes people to refrain from judging what is natural (e.g., feeling sad or anxious) as good or bad, just as we would not judge an angle of a mountain or a speed of river flow in the same way.

Date: Thursday, October 12, 2017
Time: 4:30–7:30 PM
Place: Room SUR 2750, SFU Surrey Campus

This free event is open to all SFU community members.
