KUCHING: More than 150 parents and students participated in the annual HELP University signature event, the Mini Psychology Convention, recently.
According to the university on Monday (Oct 17), the event was held at Tunku Putra, HELP International School after a two-year absence due to the pandemic.
Three student workshops featured topics such as ‘Psychology: The New Frontier’ by Dr Victor Goh, ‘Stress and Coping’ by Tan Cher Yi, and ‘Alzheimer’s Disease’ by Tan Ze Wei.
“The first workshop introduced students to what psychology is in general and allowed them to explore the direction of psychology in their future careers. Subsequently, the second workshop talks about what stress is in general.
“The talk expands further into major sources of stress and the potential effects of stress. By the end of the workshop, students are able to learn coping strategies to deal with stress,” the university said.
Meanwhile, the third workshop brought attention to Alzheimer’s Disease, where students get a general overview of the disease and, most importantly, ways to prevent it.
“In addition, Dr Victor Goh also chaired two other workshops, targeting parents, namely ‘Understanding Teenagers’ and ‘Parenting in the 21st Century’.
“Everyone had a fun and fruitful day,” the statement added.
