Narrative Training

Keeping up the pace and learning still more new interventions makes me more resourced to work the toughest cases. Incest and abuse cases are often inter-generational patterns of abuse that are kept hidden by family members who are shrouded in shame. The family secret though always is played out — a black sheep; no chide not to speak of a certain uncle. The narrative approach helps most with such cases because with story telling, you get to see the family DNA. Here is our Psychobiographic Narrative Class Led by Fredrick Boholst

This is the level of dedicated work us psychologists put into our therapy plans. Here’s To us psychologists who think talking about dead bugs makes for such an entertaining and engaging conversation on a rainy cozy Thursday night

Associate Professor at iAcademy

Class of 2021 in Human Development

Starting out the new year as an Associate Professor at Iacademy. Never thought I would end up in the academe ..yet it has been a wonderful ride. It is inspiring to teach and much more inspiring to learn. The youth, with their vigor and energy are engaging with new ideas brought by experiencing the world in a new way. The 20s of today are so different from the 20s in the early 1990’s. They are more adventurous , less afraid, more daring to be different, more open about life experiences. Good for them

Ethical Research Training

Dr. Caring Tarroja giving a lecture on Ethics in Research, DLSU

Updating skills is a necessary part of being a competent practitioner. Specially with the new ruling of the PAP, Philippine psychologists must be well aware of the ethical principles so that clients can be sure of quality service. Here we are training under the National Scientist Awardee Dr. Caring Tarroja.

For me, the most important learning is the importance of avoiding duality in relationships, specially in the field of research. It ensures that information gathered is more objective and therefore the study more reliable and the results more valid.

Burnout: the new challenge for the millennial workforce

Just a few months back, i guested on an online show for millennial executives. The discussion was on management of stress in the workplace. Because of the unusual work hours , constantly changing work situations, high cost of living, the young executives find it challenging to keep up with work demands. Because they fear humiliation, they keep the stress to themselves try to forget the pressures by drinking, partying, expensive lifestyles that they cannot afford.
This does not have to be. there are many positive ways to manage stress —managing emotions, thoughts, and feeling is an effective way. Through a framework meant to challenge thoughts, a more realistic view of the situation and a more proactive action plan can be developed.

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.
