Dr. Carandang wins the First Outstanding Psychologist from PRC

Hi Everyone! We would like to congratulate our President and Founder, Dr. Maria Lourdes “Honey” Carandang for having been the first ever “Outstanding Professional for Psychology” selected by the Philippine Regulation Commission (PRC). To quote the Facebook page of PAP: “The Professional Regulatory Commission selected Dr. Honey Carandang as Outstanding Psychologist for 2014. In its awarding ceremonies last June 20, 2014, the PRC hailed Dr. Carandang and 30 other awardees from different professions for their exemplary work. Dr. Carandang was cited for being a key figure in Psychology having created the committee that first drafted the Psychology bill, which was later enacted as the Philippine Psychology Act of 2009. She was also cited for pioneering the practice of psychotherapy in the country specializing in children and families, for founding the Philippine Association of Play Therapy, authoring 13 books on the FIlipino families that created widespread impact on parents and mental health professionals. She founded the MLAC Psychological Services for Wellbeing that specializes in the wellbeing of the marginalized, traumatized, abused, survivors of disasters, street children, OFW families left behind, and children in prostitution. Dr. Carandang is the first Psychologist awarded this honor by PRC. She was joined in the ceremonies by Dr. Imelda Villar, Psychology Regulatory Board (PRB) of Psychology, her spouse Dr. Brigido Carandang, Dr. Gina Hechanova, PAP President and Dr. Miriam Cue, Chair of PRB for Psychology.
