Presidential Address


It is my great pleasure to open the 5th symposium of the East Asian Academy of Cultural Psychiatry in Tokyo, continuously after the 4th meeting in Seoul.

It is our aim in this symposium, I believe, to exchange transcultural psychiatric views with each other and to integrate them so as to advance our understanding. In the past 4 symposiums, we were able to participate in fruitful discussions stimulated by many inspiring presentations, and through these opportunities we acquired a new, mutual understanding and enjoyed a cordial friendship.

In my opinion, hitherto we have compared our experiences in psychiatry with western ones, and considered the results as comparative psychiatry, However, throught these symposiums we have found similarities and differences among the psychiatric findings of our three countries, and these discoveries are very important. Therefore, our view regarding comparative psychiatry has changed, and we have gained many fruits from cultural psychiatry, which we could not have obtained, if these meetings had not been held. It is not too much to say that we are breaking fresh ground in the field called comparative psychiatry

The theme of this present symposium is “family Violence in East Asia”  which relates not only to the psychiatric realm but also to the social realm. Furthermore, I resume there are characteristics specific to each country, and at the same time similar ones which differ from western country. The common features cited by the three regions will indicate the specific culture-bound psychopathology and modern western influence. Regarding this problem, it is important not only to know the realities, but also to seek the countermeasures.

I am sure that this symposium will afford the participants a good knowledge of the theme and promote a better understanding of the transcultural psychiatric view as a whole.

Closing Address


I am delighted to make the closing address of this symposium. Undoubtedly, this Symposium has been another successful-each member participant has presented progressive ideas regarding culture and family violence.

Parent abuse was most impressive and interesting, and seemed particularly connected to the change in Japanese society. Of special concern is the assumption that the outbreak of violence manifested within the family seemed connected to the excessive control and order in Japanese society. It has been speculated that, in time, both Korea and Taiwan will soon be facing the same problem.

When our Taiwan group joined the Academy in 1990, we made quick strides to catch up to the level of professional achievement of our Japanese and Korean colleagues. Fortunately, five members of  our Taiwan group are now regularly attending symposiums, giving our group steadiness and stability in working relations.

We are honored that the 6th EAACP Symposium will be held in Taiwan. The date has been set for the first week of December, 1996. The conference site will be Kaosiung City. It is the second largest city of Taiwan located in the southern region and is known for its lovely tropical scenery. It has been proposed that the theme of the Symposium be “Symptomalogy of Schizophrenia in East Asia.”

At the business meeting, I proposed a regulation be set in our Academy that would state that age 70 would be the retiring age for regular members; I would then be allowed to retire from the regular duty of membership(as Dr. Doi did five years ago). This proposal was turned down by the Academy. Consequently, I shall obey your decision that there be no age limit for active membership for a person with no serious personal difficulties or problems.

I want to express my sense of pleasure in sharing this time with you all. I sincerely hope that our professional endeavors in the years ahead will be enriched by many more warm and joyous gatherings and meetings like the ones of this symposium.

We thank our Japanese colleagues heartily for their warm reception and tremendous efforts exerted in preparation of this symposium. We come to Japan in the same month of the Hang-Shin mega earthquake-a time of suffering and economic swaying for this country. How obvious it is that natural disaster is much more violent than human aggression. Now, we witness people reconstructing their lives with great effort. It is our hope that they will not suffer any delayed psychological reaction from the disaster trauma experienced.

Thank you again and I look forward to seeing you again in Taiwan next year.
