Diploma in Buddhist Psychotherapy & Counselling(DBPC)
"As a nun, I have many opportunities to apply what I learned in class during one to one befriending sessions with devotees. With practice, training and advices from supervisors, I gained a lot more confidence in helping them and devotees have provided feedback to me that the sessions were helpful for them and I am very happy to see them grow. "
"A course like DBPC is very lacking and very needed in the “market”, not just in Singapore but also the neighbouring countries like Malaysia. It has good integration of counselling knowledge, skills and techniques with the teachings of Buddha."
"In addition to lectures, we practice counselling techniques in the classroom through role play, visit clients to practice counselling in real life, and discuss the cases afterwards during group supervision. To ensure good mental health of the students, the course also arranged for us to meet with certified clinical supervisor.”
“Dr Po is knowledgeable and humorous. He brings the class to a level exceeding all expectation. I feel so lucky to have him as a compassionate and inspired mentor. Mr Sim is an outstanding teacher, by injecting clinical experiences and organizing multiple role play, he not only empowered me with Counselling theory but develop us from the ground up. I have learnt much from his teaching.”
