Dr. Ric P. Ascano, a visiting professor from the University of North Dakota was the resource speaker for the very first Learning Hub International Seminar Workshop on "Gaining an Edge in Disaster Mental Health Response" last June 3, 2017. This was held at The Feast - Ortigas, Robinsons Galleria, Ortigas Avenue, Quezon City.

The renowned speaker is also the author of "Spiritual Adoption: The Path to Spiritual Maturity" (2011), a book co-authored by his wife S.L. Ascano. He also has an e-book as a follow-up on this entitled "Spiritual Adoption: The Path to Spiritual Maturity Revised and Expanded" (2016). He gifted some of the lucky participants with his first book and autographed these.

Psychologists, counselors, pastoral workers and those in the healing ministries attended to hear Dr. Ascano's lecture on secondary post-traumatic stress disorders, techniques of psychosocial interventions for neuroprotection against traumatic flashback experiences and the integration of spirituality and healing in mental health. The activity featured demonstrations by Dr. Ascano on how to apply the techniques in the counseling and pastoral ministry setting.
