RA9258 posted in anther internet site

One Monday afternoon while in DLSU, I checked my email, and a Filipino PhD in Arizona contacted me about developments in our field of Counseling here in the Philippines. He mentioned that it was through this blog that he got information. I corresponded, and today he wrote that he downloaded RA9258 in . You may actually click it yourself and see that our law is there for others outside the country to read. Thanks Art for this service. Maybe this will be an opportunity for us to have contacts with Counseling as an international profession. Happy reading (well you should have read it yourself already). Just to let us know our law is read internationally. God bless

HELP University College, Malaysia needs help

One of my colleagues, Dr. Susan Estanislao emailed me this article from Dr. Joal Reyes who's currently in Kuala Lumpur who asked her to have the following matter posted in our PACERS website.

Hope many can have access to this opportunity, and in the process lead towards the Reciprocity accords between Malaysia and the Philippines in the near future. Remember RA9258's provision on Reciprocity? See Article IV Section 29 of the Guidance & Counseling Act of 2004 in my Feb 28, 2007 blog here. God bless
