Speak Up in Assertiveness Seminar

By:   Ms. Ma. Laarni V. Dolor

2nd year Guidance Counselor


The College Guidance and Counseling Center held a seminar-workshop entitled “Assertiveness: Let Your Voices Be Heard” last February 05, 2007 at the Little Theater of the International Center.

            Based on the interviews and psychological tests conducted by LCCM counselors, most of the LCCM students have an average level of assertiveness and generally do not understand the meaning of the word.  Ms. Christine Garinganao, 3rd Year Counselor, proposed a program that will help the students know more about being assertive, as well as learn specific techniques on how to express themselves in front of other people.

            Ms. Annie T. Mendoza, a professor from University of Asia and Pacific, was invited to share her knowledge and expertise on the said topic.  She discussed about different techniques and methods on how to freely express their ideas and thought and ways on how to handle bullies without being emotionally hurt.  The said seminar also facilitates learning among students on how to confidently communicate their feelings in a non-passive or non-aggressive way.

      The seminar was attended by students under Dean Farida B. Brillantes (School of Nursing), Dean Ruby Senatin (School of Arts and Sciences), Dean Ronald Pastrana (School of HRM & Tourism) and some members of the faculty.
