Taisei Wake ( /ˈtʌɪ-sei wa-ke/ ) is Associate Lecturer in the Department of Psychiatry at Saitama Medical University in Japan, where he is practicing as a certified clinical psychologist and is a member of the hospital’s clinical ethics committee. He is also Researcher in the Department of Psychiatry at Keio University School of Medicine. After receiving his BA in Political Science from Keio University, with a focus on Political Philosophy, Taisei spent eight years in his role as Career Officer at the Headquarters of the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan. There, he supported the Party’s many activities, including its electioneering, policymaking, and diplomatic activities. Deciding to take a step back from his work, he relocated to Boston and conducted research as Fellow at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs of Harvard University. Taisei then renewed his involvement in the fields of psychology, philosophy, and death education to which he had been drawn. He earned his MA in Counselling Psychology from Boston College, and has provided psychotherapy both in the US and Japan. His current research interests focus mainly on incorporating empirical research into moral and theoretical dimensions, such as the ethical justification of disclosing amyloid status, indicating risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease, to cognitively normal older adults in clinical settings, beyond the research environment.
