Psych Profs Hold ‘Seminar for a Cause’

While seminars are held mostly for teachers, executives, and professionals, the one given by the psychology professors appeared extraordinary as the participants were special people being taken care of by the Integrated Community Extension Services (ICES) of Adamson University. Thus, it was aptly considered as a seminar for a worthy cause.



On September 13, 2008, a Saturday, some AdU Psychology professors went to Southville in Cabuyao, Laguna - one of the communities adopted by Adamson University through the ICES. They talked about maternal health and care. It is noteworthy to mention that there was bonus information about child rearing. The mothers became interested to know and understand their children’s behavior, and how they should be dealt with.



The seminar was a success in the sense that there was interaction and active participation of the Block members. They got curious about the topics and they asked questions which the Psychology professors willingly answered. No doubt they were happy, exclaiming that they learned a lot from the seminar. They were grateful to Adamson University, especially to ICES, for the great things they are benefiting from.



For their part, the Psychology faculty left Southville with a smile; they really enjoyed the experience of imparting what they have with special people. There was a sense of fulfillment in sharing their God-given gifts, skills, abilities, and wisdom as a gift to people whom God treasures and loves so much.
