Last Aug.25-26, 2016, Dr. Honey Carandang and members of the MLAC team conducted a two-day workshop for the health service providers of Pasig. This event was organized by The City Government of Pasig through The Pasig Health Department and the Gender and Development Office.
Dr. Honey and the MLAC team emphasized the importance of being mindful and knowing how to take care of one’s self to prevent burnout especially since the participants regularly handle cases of abuse, substance abuse, and teenage pregnancy. Frameworks on the 7 Basic Psychological Needs and Trauma and Recovery were given, as well as an introduction to Basic Listening and Counseling Skills and the Use of Expressive Arts.
The MLAC team would like to thank Ms.Gigie Barnedo of GAD for inviting us and coordinating with us. Most of all, thank you to the participants who were very open and eager to share themselves with us!
*the participants are the first batch to go through the workshop, there will be a 2nd batch soon!
Here are some pictures from the event:
