Completing my First Class Under the PhD program

First class completed in the PhD program for Clinical Psychology with Dr. Caring Tarroja, still the reigning Psychologist of the year 2018. Interesting how different the deliverables of a Clinical Psychologist supervisor is very different from a work supervisor. The performance rating of a clinical psychologist supervisor is hinged squarely on the depth and authenticity of relationship between the supervisor and supervisee. The level of comfort that the supervisor and supervisee have towards realising, accepting, probing, and hurdling personal and cultural biases. Personal growth goes hand in hand with improvement of skills. If you have gained the skill but havent grown as a person, then the supervision has become a failure. Profound.

Resourcing for Cosmopolitan Philippines on Millennial lifestyles, The Reasons Behind Their So-Called Erratic Decisions

Many scratch their heads in disbelief over the decisions young adults make. Why did you resign out of that prestigious company to work in a mountain school? Why did you go for that guy without an education achievement as good as yours? why did you choose a partner from the other side of the tracks. When young adults make decisions seemingly in discord with their prior life direction, it could be a sign that they are individuating —-making decisions and starting out lives more in line with who they are.

Updating Skills Through Training in Positive Psychology from Singapore School of Psychology

Clinicians need to keep updating their skills with a variety of interventions so that they are equipped with any type of client or situation that needs their guidance. In the use of positive psychology, there is no need to find out the reason for the current dysfunctional state of the client. More important is to identify the strengths and resources for the client to weather the current crisis.
