Psyke 1 may well be the first of its kind in Philippines academic history. This publication project of the Department of Psychology, Ateneo de Manila University, aims to serve the general reader by translating the technical language of theses and dissertations into reader-friendly versions. The Psyke series will cover the different areas of concentration if the discipline of Psychology. This volume, in particular, features selected theses and dissertations in Counseling Psychology. The focal point of Psyke 1 is on wellness, rather than illness; on mental health, rather than psychopathology. This perspective is deliberately taken. In Philippines society today, there is a pervading climate of pessimism and negativism. It takes courage, a strong will and determination to go against the tide of self-effacement and criticism that has become fashionable. This volume, it is hoped, contributes toward a sense of optimism and psychological well-being.
