Center for Clinical Psychology

The Center for Clinical Psychology

This Center was established in August 2021 for providing psychological support and contributing to comprehensive education, research and regional medical care on clinical psychology.
With Professor Manabu Takaki of the Department of Neuropsychiatry as the center's director, nine certified published psychologists or clinical psychologists are currently working mainly in the Departments of Neuropsychiatry, Pediatrics, Child Neurology, Child Psychosomatic Medicine, and the Gender Center (Gender Clinic), as well as the Okayama Prefectural Medical Center for Dementia-related Diseases, Epilepsy Center, and Locomotive Pain Center. In collaboration with these departments and centers, we provide psychological testing and psychological support from infants to the elderly. We also provide the psychological support for hospitalized patients in the psychiatric liaison team.
As a member of the team, we provide useful information for medical care through cognitive function tests, developmental and intelligence tests, personality tests, and psychological interviews.
We listen carefully to both the voice of the mind and the voice of the body.
Psychological tests and interviews are conducted by appointment only through the hospital's medical department. For adults and hospitalized patients, please contact the Department of Neuropsychiatry, and for children, please contact the Department of Pediatrics, Child Neurology, or Child Psychosomatic Medicine.
