Workshop 3: Emotion Management
Workshop 3: Emotion Management was held on 17th September 2011 (Saturday) at Caritas Jockey Club Lai King Rehabilitation Centre, around 150 students and teachers participated. Dr. Raymond CHAN, Senior Clinical Psychologist of Kwai Chung Hospital, was invited to speak on Emotion Management.
Dr. CHAN utilized self-test, video clips and emotional exercises, guiding students to think what and how to manage emotion.
Students benefited a lot from the workshop; they have learned about basic emotions, the causes, symptoms of emotional problems (e.g. anxiety, depression), emotion management methods and skills. To eliminate students’ misunderstanding on emotional illness, an ex-mentally ill person was invited for case sharing.
To review the effectiveness of workshop, students were invited to fill in questionnaires. According to the results, majority (99.3%) of them agreed the workshop content enriched their mental health knowledge. Moreover, participants learned how to manage own emotion and helping others in solving emotional problems.
