Promoted by the Guidance Office for Counseling, Assessment, Research, & Evaluation (GOCARE), the first February Mind Matters session entitled “Understanding the Feelings of Others” was conducted on February 10.
The main flow of the session was a question and answer between the host and participants. As an introduction, the facilitator asked the question, “What motivated you to join in this particular topic?” The participants’ responses leaned towards personal reasons like self-improvement, increase emotional intelligence, etc.
After observing, the host asked the participants to reflect on their understanding and how they were moved by the videos they watched through the modules published on Canvas. The facilitator then discussed about how they should give empathy toward others as part of their social life.
Being the main subject matter of the session, ways to empathize and manipulate expectations of others, and how one should change their perspective to learn and understand how others feel about themselves and the people around them were expounded. This topic was important in helping students to know how to change their negative feelings and habits to understand the feelings of others.
GOCARE conducted this Mind Matters session as a way to counsel students and enlighten them on how to understand the feelings others and themselves.
