Andrew Hee and I were Resource Persons for the follow-up training on Peer Counseling at Institut Latihan Majlis Kebajikan dan Pembangunan Masyarakat Kebangsaan, Bandar Baru Sentul today. Eight Peer Counselors participated in the one-day event funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency. Kenji Kuno, the JICA Expert/Advisor for this project was with us throughout the entire day. I covered two topics – History of Peer Counseling and The Promises of Peer Counseling. It was a good learning experience, not only for the participants, but for me as the questions posed allowed me to understand Peer Counseling on a deeper level. The next training will be on September.

  1. Hi! Peter
    It is good to know that this course has benefited a large number of people. It’s only through this type of seminar or courses that you can share each others’ positive and negative experiences. Maybe at the end of the day, you and others will be able to establish a closer links and peer support network. Good luck. By the way, I’m just a stranger who regularly read your articles.

    Thank you. I certainly hope something positive will come out of all of this.

  2. Glad everything went well *winkz*

    Yup, it went well all right. 🙂
