The Department of Student Affair Counselling Guidance Unit organised the Counselling Wellness Week (CWW) 2018 at Sungai Long Campus from 12-14 June 2018. The event featured exhibitions, relevant games, activities and talks. Themed ‘Living in Gratitude: A Journey of Healing’, the event aimed to spread the awareness of feeling grateful in life and also to set a platform for students to acquire skills that would enable them to live better.

Ng explaining the personality test analysis
Professional writer Ma Long presented a talk titled “The Power of Thank You: Can Change Your Life”. The talk focused on the power of gratitude and explained how the word, “thank you” can change one’s life. In his talk, he advised students to appreciate the little things in life, to focus their attention on what is pleasurable rather than distressing themselves over little issues. He also provided the participants with information and knowledge that could help them realise their strength in facing life challenges. He said, “The same fact can be very different when you see it from another perspective. Sometimes we just need a different angle to help us see things as they really are.” He also shared with the audience about the water molecule experiment, which was done by Japanese scientist Dr Masaru Emoto, in order to highlight the importance of positive thinking and to show the great power of thoughts and emotions.

Ma delivering his talk
The second talk, titled “Four Colours Personality Analysis: Knowing Self, Understanding Other”, saw Focus Personality Analysis (Malaysia) Ng Chian Jean using the colour personality test to assess and help participants to know more about themselves and why people react to certain situations in a certain way. In relation to the colour red, blue, yellow and green, Ng shared about the four basic personality types and analysed each of its strength while giving insight into the potential downsides of each type. He added, “It is perfectly normal if you have more than one colour. Some people might have bits of each colour personality, although some colours may be more predominant than the rest.”
Vincent Leong from Plato Experiential Consultancy conducted a workshop titled, “Keep Calm and Rasakan Gratitude”. He shared on ways to experience and show gratitude in life. Some of the highlights he mentioned in the workshop were self-reflection, self-acknowledgement and self-worth. He said, “We must remember that the only person who can help us is ourselves. We have to cultivate the best in ourselves. We have to accept our good and ugly sides to acknowledge ourselves.”

Good Thought, Good Feeling

Mental health awareness campaign

An awareness campaign was organised by the Department of Student Affairs (DSA) Counselling and Guidance Unit at Sungai Long Campus from 22 to 23 January 2018.
The theme of the campaign was “In-motion: Walk with Emotion”. It was held with the objectives of promoting the importance of emotional health among students as well as helping them to manage their emotions properly.
The campaign saw a series of the talks which was presented by invited speakers Lily Wong, Liang Yaw Wen, Ma Long and Lee Shae Nee. The topics covered during the talk were “Anger Management for Students”, “Hypnosis: Managing Emotion at the Subconscious Level”, “Good Thought, Good Feeling” and “Emotional Blackmail”.
During the talk, Wong shared some tips to the audience on how to control their emotions. She urged the participants to recognise the reasons behind the anger and figure out some healthy ways to manage it. She advised the audience not to suppress the feelings of anger but rather to de-escalate the emotions by diverting the negative energy through certain activities.
Liang explaining the definition of hypnosis to audience
In Liang's talk, he spoke on topics such as the concepts and myths of hypnosis, alpha and beta state of mind, and managing emotions through hypnosis. “Through hypnosis, we are able to calm ourselves down to realise and understand the current situation and solve issues in a rational way,” he said. He also provided some experiential learning for the participants to experience hypnosis and to learn how to perform hypnosis individually.
 Ma pointing out that different people see things in different way
On the other hand, Ma said, “Our thoughts will determine our feeling, and our feeling will influence our judgments and decisions, which in turn, influence our destiny.” He mentioned that negative thoughts could lead people to experience the negative emotions of sadness and depression. This leads to further negative thinking and suicidal mindset. Therefore, he encouraged the audience to maintain a good thinking and good emotion in their daily life.
Lee pointing out the signs of emotional blackmail
With her talk titled “Emotional Blackmail”, Lee gave a comprehensive definition to make the audience understand on this novel type of emotional abuse. She taught the audience to understand the different type of emotional blackmails and guided them to recognise the signs of emotional blackmail as well as to understand what to do in the event of a given circumstance.  
“In order for emotional blackmail to work, there has to be a willing victim. Knowing what emotional blackmail looks like and understanding how to deal with them, will prevent you or someone you know to fall victim to an abusive or manipulative person,” said Lee.

<那些年> 2018年最让人感动的诗集 <幸福会来临>诗人牧师不平凡的幸福哲学

幸福会来临新书发表会 讲者与观众热情互动

2017年台湾的年度代表字分别是「茫」、「劳」、「忧」,该如何挥别去年负能量的低迷氛围,2018年让自己更加幸福起来呢?透过「幸福会来临」一书或许能得到正解,由明人出版社主办的诗人郑明析新书发表会1月20日在诚品松菸店展[开⭒],幸福来的路-《幸福会来临》新书发表会邀请台湾知名作曲家林纯慧,从音乐人的角度谈诗作之美,以及马来西亚诗人马龙来台分享与作者之间的师徒情谊,现场搭配由诗集中改编的音乐创作,成为一个诗情画意与幸福共赏的夜晚。

幸福会来临新书发表会盛况空前

 向郑明析学习写诗、学习人生的马来西亚诗人马龙,描述他与诗人之间亦师亦友的故事,马龙提到:「作者以着爱神的这份爱,超越肉体地,爱着身边所有的人、万物。他可以把周遭的人事物,看为是那位爱他的神,以着不同形式显现自己眼前,如此感受到爱、生命力。认识他之后,即使我们不同国家、民族、文化背景,我也从他身上,感受这份爱。」针对诗集中最重要的一首诗<幸福来的路>“幸福不会按照你的期盼来临,而是会按照你的行为来临”马龙也形容,创作的历程和幸福的路程,其实蛮相似,无论怎么样形式的创作,创作是从生活经历而来,如同“珍珠是被割伤的蚌壳所生产的;作品是被割伤的生命所生产的”以着同样是诗人的经历,因此对此诗心有同感且印象非常深刻。

透过活力四射的舞蹈表演 带给观众幸福的律动

 文学是一种表达,各样艺术的存在都是一种表达。知名作曲家林纯慧提到:「艺术创作最怕『为赋新词强说愁』为了写而写。诗人郑明析不受所处的环境所限制,他的创作不被格律、形式、内容所限制而写成的自由之诗,我觉得那是真正的幸福。」古典艺术过去有许多的规则与形式,但是到了二十世纪都被打破,成为很自由、前卫的现代文学,郑明析诗人创作中也是充满对信仰、对人生的热爱,呈现很自由的表达,是非常难得一见的现代诗。

 韩国着名诗人郑明析身为韩国诗史100年(1908~2010年)的代表诗人,他有10篇诗作被收录在2011年出刊的「韩国诗大事典」,并在韩国最大书店「教保文库」创下蝉联三个月的文学畅销书排行榜冠军纪录,目前台湾共翻译<诗的女人>、<幸福会来临>两部诗集在台上市,目前全台书店诚品、博客来、金石堂热烈贩售中,欢迎民众多多支持购买。

<好句子> 瞬间捕抓


猎豹、老虎和狮子
会在<瞬间机会的时机>
瞬间判断后敏捷地行动,
所以它们很会狩猎。

祝福各位都如同猎豹、老虎和狮子般,
<瞬间捕抓>到<瞬间机会的时机>
而顺利亨通!

<好句子> 不要让想法沉睡


是由想法吩咐身体去行动的,
因此,不要让想法沉睡,
不然,梦想 、希望与成功也都会沉睡。

也是在想法中感受主 、与主见面的!
因此,不要让想法沉睡,
这样,跟主相通的门就大大地敞开,
爱就会醒过来。
