                              University of the Asia and the Pacific
The workshop is about the out-of-character selves we all encounter from time to
time, particularly when we are experiencing fatigue and stress. It delves on some
of our seemingly aberrant, abnormal experiences of ourselves and others which
when dealt with openness can be beneficial for healthy and adaptive living and
relationships. In the Grip is based on the personality type theory of Cal Gustav
Jung. Participants will get most from this workshop if they are familiar with the
psychological type approach to understanding personality and more importantly,
they have taken the MBTI and know their own four-letter personality type (e.g.,
ESTJ, ISTP). The workshop will introduce the participants to a fascinating and
valuable part of Jung’s typology – the inferior function. The workshop will be
largely interactive using group work process and sharing of experiences.

participants will be given lecture and basic hands-on training on the essentials of
program development from draft to presentation. They will also learn and
appreciate the value of promoting change through planned and systematic

perspective, the session aims to explore expressions and dynamics of personas
and shadows in everyday life. The workshop is divided into two parts. The first
part includes answering a projective scale and its interpretation. The second part
is an open forum for question and answer among students. This discussion is
guided by questions regarding love and relationships. The aim of the second part
is to link and elaborate results of the scale to everyday experiences of building
relationships. Participants will need a pencil and a calculator.

  Workshop               Your Story Take One Action! Understanding
     10                          the Self Through Psychodrama
                                        Joseph B. De Roxas
                      De La Salle University-Manila/Bulacan State University
Shakespeare wrote that the entire world’s a stage. But Jacob Moreno (1946), the
father of Psychodrama, said that the stage is a venue for exploring internal
conflicts and acting out unresolved issues that hamper the psychological growth
of an individual, this leads to psychological catharsis and resolution. In the end,
moments of clarity and insight will empower the clients to make changes in their
lives and relationships. This exciting workshop introduces the basic concepts
and principles of psychodrama, a form of expressive therapy. The participants
will be led to different techniques and methods proposed by Z. Moreno (1959),
Weiner and Sacks (1969), and Blatner (1973, 1988). Lecture, structured learning
exercises, group discussion, and video presentation will be utilized in the
workshop. All participants are highly encouraged to join the activities. At the
end, the aspiring psychologist will be able to apply these techniques in doing
clinical intervention in the future.

                                  Psychological Assessment Center
Vision Boards are a simple but powerful tool for gaining clarity in one’s life. You
wouldn't drive a long distance without a map, would you? A vision board is a
visual map for your life's journey. In this workshop, you become clear about all
the things you want in life - career success, a house, a baby, romantic love, to
become someone, or whatever you may want to be. This will be initiated through
a relaxing process of guided mental imagery. Then the fun part begins in
gathering images. You will choose images that resonate with you and your
desires. Next, you will sort and adhere the images to a poster board and then add
any embellishments as you wish. These are the things you want to manifest.
Finally, you will reflect about the process and the items on your board. Concepts
and creative techniques on self-exploration through expressive arts will be

                          Medical Center/Solace Consulting Group, Inc.
The workshop aims to introduce and apply basic concepts and techniques of
Reality Therapy (Glasser & Wubbolding) and Choice Theory (Glasser) in the
context of real life cases encountered in the practice of counseling psychology.
After the participants’ brief introduction and expectation setting, volunteers will
role play sample cases, such as those related to school, work and family concerns,
relationships, marriage, sexual molestation, and suicidal tendencies, using
current methods of counseling they know of or that they practice. The outcome
will then be analyzed by the rest of the group. Then, Choice Theory and Reality
Therapy will be discussed. After which, participants in dyads or small groups will
role play the above cases and some common concerns using Reality Therapy. An
evaluation of the new technique will follow and it will be compared and
contrasted with the participants’ existing counselling approaches.

  Workshop         Psychological First Aid (PFA): A Basic Disaster Response
     13                               Siegfred F. Gamueda
                               De La Salle University-Dasmariñas
The workshop aims to introduce the basic concepts of psychological first aid as
an intervention in the aftermath of a disaster. Specifically, it tackles the roles that
participants can perform at the site, help that they can do being part of a team,
and other practical assistance or information that can help survivors. The scope
of the workshop includes the guidelines of PFA, professional behaviours
expected for a community/disaster worker, “Do’s” and “Dont’s” and the core
actions of PFA. Salient to the discussion is the idea that participants don’t need to
conduct counselling or offer any psychological intervention if they don’t have
skills yet because there are other things that they can do when they follow the
core actions of PFA. Activities will evolve in experiencing the core actions of PFA.
Also, power point presentations about the experiences of the presenter will be
shared. Participants need two bond paper and pencil or crayons.

assessment; setting of goals and objectives; content designing; use of mixed
communication methodologies; use of training and digital tools; logistical
support; evaluation and follow-ups; and staffing and costing. Target participants
are undergraduate psychology students who wish to make a career in human
resource training and development.

  Workshop              “Ready, Fire, Aim”: Using Intuition as a Tool in
     15                             Understanding Oneself
                                      Mariflor J. Gatchalian
                       Palawan State University/Ateneo de Manila University
Experimental Phenomenology is a one of the fastest and most interesting field in
Psychology. As such, new ways of assessing individuals by the use of projective
tests have also been innovated by the use of intuition and quantitative analysis
(factor analysis). This is an exploratory stage on the new way (bagong daan) as
conceptualized by Fr. Jaime Bulatao by using the draw-a-person (DAP) and
house-tree-person (HTP) as tools in analyzing and assessing, this time letting go
of the manuals but using a psychologist’s intuition as another way (a guide) in
knowing “what else is in” our clients. This is especially useful for victims of
abuse and violence who are less likely to share their real emotions and repress
their real self. The workshop explores the use of intuition that will enable us to
get within our client’s inner self thus enabling us to focus on their real needs and
understanding their dynamics.

  Workshop               Solution-Focused Brief Therapy for Filipinos
     16                               Rowena S. Guiang
                                  Ateneo de Manila University
The workshop introduces participants to Solution-Focused Brief Therapy. The
background of SFBT as well as the description in doing therapy will be
presented. Solution Focused Brief Therapy is a short- term goal -focused way of
doing therapy and is particularly suited to the Filipino setting. It makes use of a
person’s strengths, resources and abilities. The focus is on solutions rather than
problems and in building and in establishing goals. It is future rather than past
oriented. SFBT encourages the clients to do more of what works rather than on
what does not. Solution building is the goal. SFBT can be an addition to
traditional ways of doing therapy. This workshop also provides the participants
opportunity to try out SFBT.

  Workshop                Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD):
     17                             Process and Techniques
                          Virginia Tan- Sanfilip and Rowena Heradura
                                De La Salle University-Dasmariñas
Debriefing is a specific technique designed to assist individuals in dealing with
the physical or psychological symptoms that are generally associated with
trauma exposure. Debriefing allows those involved with the incident to process
the event and reflect on its impact. Defusing, another component of CISD, allows
for the ventilation of thoughts and emotions associated with the crisis event. This
will help the victims discuss their feelings and reactions to reduce the stress that
results from exposure to critical incidents (Joseph Davis, 1998). CISD is given to
clients who are traumatized as a result of natural calamities, rape, sexual,
physical or verbal abuse, crime, accidents and sudden deaths. This technique will
be introduced and discussed thoroughly to the students to enable them to apply
this whenever they encounter clients who had a highly-stressful or traumatic
situation either through direct experience or as a witness of it. This workshop-
seminar will help the students be familiarized with and be equipped in providing
CISD whenever needed by a client through a brief introduction on PSTD;
discussion of the CISD process; and a dyad activity of the participants that will
highlight the application of the technique. The whole process will then be
supervised by the facilitators.

                                      Mind Matters, Inc.

of communication, and not the “whats” and “whys.” It will provide a clear picture
of an interpersonal as well as intra-personal communication model for those
who believe that they have the power to influence others positively. It will also
show that it is POSSIBLE to integrate our conscious and unconscious minds as
needed, thus providing us with limitless possibilities. Topics include: the NLP
Communication Model, sensory acuity, presuppositions, use of metaphors, and
other basic NLP techniques. Demonstrations and hands-on experiences will be
included. This workshop serves as an introduction to NLP Practitioner
Certification Training, recognized by the American Board of Neurolinguistic

  Workshop                               Style Flex

                  Miriam College/DBP Service Corporation/Manila Observatory
At home or at work, persons achieve certain targets, largely on their ability to
deal with others. To do so, it is often important to understand and manage
themselves first before they get to understand and work well with others. This
approach to interpersonal relationship is an adaptation of the work of human
resource management experts Robert Bolton and Dorothy Grover Bolton.
Through this workshop, participants will be able to recognize their personal and
management style, as well as the predominant style of others, not with the use of
a paper and pen, but through keen observation and evaluation of particular
styles. As a result, reactions to certain situations can be anticipated and managed
by flexing one’s style. This workshop aims to impart a skill‐based interpersonal
process, which is ideal for managers, business negotiators, customer service
agents, counselors, teachers, and everyone who wishes to build a more cordial
and lasting relationship.

                              De La Salle University-Dasmariñas
One of the areas in HR is recruitment, and this is where the interview is treated
as a critical component because organizations want to see and interact with
future employees and colleagues (Stewart & Cash, 2008). In the Philippines, a
large fraction of Psychology and/or Behavioral Science fresh graduates have
decided to join industries. Most of them are designated to positions in OD, ER,
CompBen, L&D, and of course, Recruitment. However, only a few companies
provide rudimentary training in the interview. This workshop will provide the
participants with: (1) trends and case-based competency-based interview, (2)
the proper structure, conduct, and assessment of a competency-based interview,
(3) and, pitfalls of traditional recruitment interview. The first part of the
workshop will be delivered in discussion format, giving participants the liberty
to interact. The second half will execute a demo and practice on competency-
based interview to be conducted in dyads.

interact with the world is contingent in large part on your personality style. And
that is going to have an enormous impact on your health. This workshop will
give the participants information on stress, type of personality, and its impact to
their health. A hands-on interpretation of their personality will also be

This workshop will get to the heart of your clothing and shopping issues. It
explores the things that you keep in your closet and what it reveals about your
inner self. Through fun and revealing quizzes, the workshop will help you
understand your attitudes and beliefs about clothes and shopping, discover your
fashion persona, and dress for your fashion persona. You will also learn how to
build your wardrobe, make every item in your closet work for you, and
eventually make your closet in harmony with your life.

  Workshop                    Selling Your Skills in Job Interviews

                                    Ateneo de Manila University
At the end of the workshop, the participants will have had the opportunity to: (1)
identify the skills that they have; (2) generate the appropriate answers to the
different types of job interview questions; and (3) demonstrate on how to make a
good story about themselves. Going to the workplace straight from the classroom
could be one of the toughest acts for fresh graduates. It takes a lot of preparation
for one to finally let go of the more relaxed college attitude to begin life in the
workplace. One of the preparations that need to be done is preparing for job
interviews. How does one actually make one’s skills highly appealing to
employers especially during interviews? Job interviews measure the skills that
the applicants have. Thus, there is a need to acquaint oneself with one’s
transferable skills. These are the skills that have been developed or harnessed
throughout one’s student life.

  Workshop             Teaching Yourself to be Emotionally Intelligent

                                 Eastside Preparatory School
Life after college is an emotional roller coaster. You get rejected, you don’t feel
right in your career path and you just can’t figure out how to function as well
with all the different emotions bombarding you from all sides. Although
emotions help us in our survival and are vital in our everyday lives, it is also a
poor decision-maker. What’s worse, emotions can actually get in the way with
how we make decisions in the present that can greatly affect our future. The
workshop will discuss the use and power of emotions and will provide a practical
approach on how to deal with emotions like rejection, fear, anger, etc. The
workshop will use focus group discussions (FGDs) and survey questionnaires
and will have a reflective journal as an output. Participants will be encouraged to
share real life situations where they were able to deal with and overcome
emotional turmoil. A notebook and a pen are required from the participants.

  Workshop               Problem-Focused Brief Therapy for Filipinos

                                 Ateneo de Manila University
The workshop introduces participants to Problem-Focused Brief Therapy. The
background of PFBT as well as the description in doing therapy will be
presented. Problem-Focused Brief Therapy believes in clearly identifying the
problem, the context for the problem, setting clear goals and identifying
strategies to make lasting changes. It believes that families and individuals
possess all the tools necessary to solve their own problems and the role of the
counsellor is to guide and facilitate this process on a short-term basis. The
participants will have a chance to try out PFBT, as well as Solution-Focused Brief
Therapy, through case presentations, dramatizations and mock counselling

  Workshop                           Music and Child Abuse
     32                              Rachel Ann Rosales Parr
                                         Miriam College
Music has been considered to have positive healing properties since the time of
Ancient Greece (Alperson, 1987) and Ancient Egypt (Wilkinson, 1837). The
Egyptians considered the connection between sound and healing as sacred as
they believed that music and medicine were connected (Wilkinson, 1837). With
the contention that psychological healing can begin when traumatized victims
are able to tell their stories, they must first get to the point of knowing the truth
about their experience (Herman, 1997). Healing is also a process facilitated not
only by addressing one’s negative emotions but by drawing strength from the
individual’s positive emotions as well (Linn, 1988). The aim of this workshop is
to explore the power of music in creating awareness and drawing out positive
and negative emotions; and thereby helping people get in touch with their own
emotions. This will be explored by watching and reflecting on music videos
considered to have “child abuse” themes.

  Workshop          Unlearning Fears through Systematic Desensitization

                              De La Salle University-Dasmariñas
Many psychologists say that we are born with only two kinds of fear- fear of
falling and fear of loud sound. All the other fears are learned. Since they are
learned, they can be unlearned. Unreasonable fear not relevant to a given
situation or about objects is a phobia. Systematic desensitization is a type of
behavioral therapy used to help patients successfully conquer phobias and other
anxiety disorders. This treatment is covered in three major steps - Identification,
Relaxation and Desensitisation. The objective of the workshop is to help the
participants learn the basic steps involved in unlearning fears. A short lecture
about systematic desensitization will be provided, followed by identification of
the feared object and creating an anxiety hierarchy. The facilitator will introduce
progressive muscle relaxation technique which the participants will practice as
they visualize their feared object.

  Workshop                            Managing Differences

                                    Ateneo de Manila University
This workshop aims to provide an overview of how differences can be managed
more effectively. Participants will have the opportunity to label their prevailing
behavior response/s when faced with conflict situations. By knowing their own
conflict styles and that of others, the participants will explore various way of
dealing with diversity in the real world of school and work.
  Workshop            The Alternative Approaches in Analyzing Figure
     35                                 Drawings

                                  Bulacan State University
The figure drawing method assumes that how people perform these tasks reflect
some of their basic dispositions and concerns and attitudes towards themselves
and other people (Weiner & Greene, 2008). Moreover, these figures are also the
person’s unconscious manifestations of his or her needs (Furth, 2002).
Traditionally, examiners make use of test manuals or catalogues in evaluating
projective drawings in order to come up with their personal diagnosis about
their client. However, there are still certain elements or limitations that
examiners must take into consideration in evaluating certain figures such as
actions, styles, and symbols.      This workshop will introduce alternative
approaches in analyzing figure drawings: the Jungian and Humanistic
perspectives. The students will have a chance to apply these approaches in DAP,
KFD, and HTP, the most frequently used personality tests in the school setting
(Hogan, 2005). The ideal participants are the graduating students or those who
have taken a course on psychological testing.

Drawing from the art and science of Asian psychotherapy and Western
Transpersonal Psychology. The seminar-workshop will use contextualized
Filipino experiential, multi-sensory awareness-enhancing exercises to enable us
to: reawaken our sleeping beauties; re-conceive the lost dreams of our wounded
hearts; renew the vitality of our bodies; release our minds from denial and fear
to inner power; realign our spirits with the divine purpose for which we were
born. Within these states of consciousness, we shall be empowered to rediscover
and embrace the Beloved more! And by so being, we can all realize we are all a
unique part of one thriving, never-ending Garden of Forever. For maximum
benefit, promptness, presence and participation are needed with everyone
abiding by mutual respect and confidentiality for all the shared experiences.

                          Student Wellness Center, DLSU-Dasmarinas
The workshop intends to expose participants to some of the basic concepts of
expressive movement techniques/dance therapy. It aims to let them experience
how to express, listen and understand their body through movement/dance and
for them to appreciate the therapeutic benefits of such expressive techniques.
The workshop will include activities like warming up (preparing the body
through proper breathing and basic stretching); getting to know one another
through the use of structured and freestyle movements; a brief lecture to
introduce the concept and basic principles of expressive movement
techniques/dance therapy.        Participants will also experience basic
exploration/expression of their body, feelings, and thoughts through
unstructured movement as well as to use movement as a way of being with the
group. Since the activity entails lots of movement, participants are encouraged to
wear comfortable attire.

graduating from college. The first activity will help students identify their
strengths and interests using concepts from positive psychology. The second part
is for identifying possible options/careers that will suit their strengths and
interests. The last part is dedicated for discussion of concepts, sharing of insights
and culmination. At the end of the workshop, the student should have a tentative
choice on what career he or she would pursue after graduation.

                           University of Santo Tomas Guidance Office
College life demands numerous mental activities, which are experienced during
major exams, group projects, reporting and research works. Students sometimes
find it difficult to cope with all these academic requirements most especially
when they are required to attend to extra-curricular activities. These demands
put them into a lot of stress hence making them physically and psychologically
exhausted. Thus, this workshop was designed to provide an alternative way of
reducing academic stress using expressive art therapy. The workshop shall
discuss expressive therapy as a form of reducing stress. Specifically, it shall
utilize creative art materials such as colored papers and old magazines where
students could freely express themselves. They will also be guided on techniques
that deal with academic stress using the said medium Focus group discussion
shall also be facilitated to process the experience of the participants.

What makes a couple? Is love enough to make a couple? What unconscious
factors draw us to form this special partnership with another person? How does
one grow within this dyadic relationship? What issues do couples face and how
can they surpass them? What does personality have to do with it? This
lecture/workshop explores coupling beyond physical attraction as a showcase of
different theories and concepts will be cohesively presented within a single
framework. Participants are encouraged to share insights and experiences within
the session.
  Workshop           A Glimpse of ASC (Altered State of Consciousness)

                                De La Salle University-Manila
The seminar workshop aims to provide students a two pronged goal of
identifying the psychological nature of altered state of consciousness and
experiencing the phenomena. The workshop includes simple exercises on light
hypnosis, group telepathy sample, and dream interpretation using some Jungian
principles. Beyond the experiential nature of the workshop, it also allows
students to reflect on the transpersonal dimensions of psychology. Students will
be given time to validate their experiences, doubt the process, engage in group
work, interpret their dream, and learn new perspectives. Applications to daily
activities are given consideration.

Psychological tests are extensively used in business and industry to assess an
applicant’s qualifications for jobs/positions as well as for promotions. This
workshop aims to give participants hands-on experience in integrating test
results with interview results and the results of other assessment procedures for
a comprehensive view of an applicant’s fitness for the job. A model/template for
preparing a psychological report useful to HRD will be discussed. Participants
will go through a brief exercise in analyzing and interpreting tests and other
results and coming up with a report and recommendation for hiring or

  Workshop                Looking Through a Biopsychosocial Lens

                                De La Salle University-Manila
A student majoring in Psychology will find him/herself looking though different
theoretical lenses to explain human behaviour. This workshop challenges
students to use/apply an integrative approach- specifically the Biopsychosocial
perspective in explaining mental health conditions. The Biopsychosocial
perspective suggests that mental health conditions have biological, psychological
and social elements that require attention for effective intervention. This
contextual approach also proposes that the three aspects of health and illness
influence each other. The workshop will be divided into three parts: (1) lecture
discussion on the basic concepts/principles of the Biopsychosocial perspective;
(2) filling out a questionnaire (Neukrug, 2007) to assess students’ theoretical
inclination, and (3) analysis of case studies and examples where students will be
asked to offer biospychosocial explanations in understanding as well as treating
certain mental illness. The workshop will end with an evaluation of the
advantages and limitations of the Biopsychosocial perspective.

                                   De La Salle University-Manila
As psychologists, we help many people along the way through various methods,
concepts, theories and strategies. And as we in grow in years and experiences, it
helps to pause, look back and recall exactly what have helped us in our journey in
life. This workshop aims to help participants recall past major difficulties they
have personally encountered in life or experiences shared by the significant
people around them and pinpoint the specific tools that helped them cope with
those experiences. Participants will then be guided to create their own mini LIFE
KIT that would contain simple reminder tools to help them not just to cope with
possible tough times in the future but to enjoy living life. The facilitator will also
share her own LIFE KIT consisting of some of the simple yet most important
lessons and reminders in life.

  Workshop                    Behavior Management Strategies in

knowledge on behaviour management strategies in dealing with children and
their effects and consequences; (2) capability in choosing behaviour
management strategies based on his/her adhered principles; and, (3) skills in
implementing desired strategies. The workshop will focus on child-participant
interaction particularly on behaviour management by introducing methods of
handling different behavioural situations. This involves a comparative analysis of
the desired behaviour vis-a-vis the actual behaviour of a child. Cases to be
presented involve preschool children and teachers but discussions will not be
confined to the preschool setting. Analysis will tackle the socio-emotional
development of children, focusing but not limiting on Erik Erikson’s
Development Theory in the early stages. The workshop will involve (1) a
dialogue on background of the topic and expectations; (2) a presentation of three
cases through video clips followed by role playing and group analysis of each
case; (3) presentation of participants’ cases through role playing followed by
group analysis, and, (4) synthesis and synopsis of what transpired in the
workshop. Participants should have an interest in child development and conflict

                        Saint Mary’s University, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya
 Negative attitudes towards death and dying may be attributed to the lack of
knowledge and understanding of death. The workshop aims to familiarize the
participants with thanatology, in general and to Filipino thanatology, in
particular. Research findings on Filipino adolescents' perceptions, experiences,
and coping responses to death and bereavement shall be discussed. Moreover,
participants shall be exposed to death-related activities to encourage them to
reflect on their attitudes towards death and dying and hopefully, move them to
develop a more positive attitude towards death. Through the workshop,
psychology students are expected to seriously equip themselves in terms of
death education to prepare them to do grief counseling.
