Several F&L Core teams of Lagawe District attended a training on basic counseling skills in Banaue May 24-26. Dr. Pearlita Polestico from the Family Pastoral Counseling Association Philippines (FPCAP) introduced them to the nature of counseling. She did demonstrate several counseling sessions with the participants. So we got some good samples how to start the conversation in a counseling setting.

All participants were active during a practicum, either as counselor or counselee or as an observer. It was very enlightening and challenging at the same time. Manang Blandina summed up: Obviously our couples and families need counseling. If we would like to accompany them, we need more training in counseling!

Dr. Pearl offered another counseling seminar/workshop later this year. We will provide more details ahead of time!
