About the Author

Dr. Chervenkova’sresearch is focused on the original Japanese psychotherapeutic approaches – Morita, Naikan, and Dohsa-hou – and on their implementation among non-Japanese clients. As the English-language literature on the subject is yet relatively scarce, the author is committed to present these approaches outside of Japan (Asia) in a comprehensive work, making the most of her years-long research experience and training in Japan.
