FPCAP Training Team Addresses Addiction Issues

The world of addiction was brought to light by the FPCAP training team last August 22, 2019 with their seminar workshop theme Cascading a Proactive Mental Health Response on Addiction Issues. In consonance with their advocacy on mental health, the training team presented ongoing problems of addiction with emphasis on therapeutic and psycho-educational interventions.

Led by Mr. Rene Arcilla, FPCAP president as resource person on sex addiction, the participants had a great time in learning new knowledge and skills, meeting new friends, and reuniting with their colleagues in this seminar workshop. Ms. Maureen Sandejas led the participants to a journey in the world of shopping addiction while Dr. Pearl Polestico conscientized them to examine their lives if they are hoarders through the topic Hoarding Disorder. Mr. Alfie De Vega held his ground on the common issue of substance addiction that included alcoholism. And to address the most prolific type of addiction today that besets young and adults alike, Mr. Rollie Delos Reyes II talked about gadgets addiction.

The said seminar workshop was held at the F. Benitez Alumni Center in UP Diliman, Quezon City.
