Understanding these contributors to happiness will improve happiness and offer some potential levers for improving happiness at work.

Description:

Research has shown that self-compassion is associated with positive emotional well-being, the ability to cope with life challenges, lower levels of anxiety and depression, healthy habits like diet and exercise, and more satisfying personal relationships. Self-compassion entails treating ourselves kindly. Instead of judging ourselves, it allows us to realistically regard ourselves, and to understand that despite our inadequacies and mistakes, we are worthy of love and respect. It allows us to feel connected to others when we suffer, rather than feeling isolated. With it, we overcome challenges with greater ease, and are motivated to make much-needed improvements in our lives.

Description:

The sexual behavior of Filipino youth is getting hotter and wilder. Many of them are engaging in risky sexual activities at an early age without thinking about the possible negative consequences of their behavior. This is a major contributing factor to the drastic increase of new HIV infections in the country. In order to achieve a change among youth’s sexual behavior, an important step is to improve their knowledge concerning their sexual health. Therefore, young advocates must be empowered and equipped with the necessary knowledge and skills to help their peers/other young people reduce their risky sexual behavior and promote good decision making. Likewise, this workshop is geared towards enhancement of participants’ knowledge, skills, and attitudes in providing sexual health and HIV information to promote positive behavioral change. More than this, they will be introduced to basic counseling skills necessary to implement the key practices of HIV Counseling including risk assessment, disclosure, and harm reduction.

Description:

Mental health professionals are individuals responsible for promoting and offering mental health awareness and services. All mental health professionals offer different services for people’s psychological well-being. Richards, Campenni, and Muse-Burke (2010) said that counselor’s responsibilities, which are to do no harm, to benefit others, and pursue excellence in their profession, are part of the core ethical principles of counseling. That is why mental health professionals tend to be vulnerable that leads to impairment in their professional lives and weaken their therapeutic efficacy. Experts find that they are susceptible to vicarious trauma, substance abuse, relational difficulties, and depression. Thus, to remain to their ethical principles, it is essential that counselors engage in self-care to decrease the possibility of impairment and improve their well-being as well. Pope and Vasquez (2013) said that disregarding self-care can contribute to negative effects such as being able to drain the enthusiasm, joy, resilience, and meaning out of a career. It can hurt the capability to practice ethically and can sink in discouragement, compassion fatigue, and burnout.


Reminders:

This workshop/seminar will enlighten the students of psychology about the importance of self-care in their future field of work. This will also let the students learn more about the different experiences in the various field of works in psychology. This will enhance their knowledge about the ethical concerns of self-care in order to lessen the effects of burnout, especially in the field of psychology.
