ROMPIN: Counselling teachers could add further value by volunteering their services to the public, said Deputy Human Resources Minister Datuk Maznah Mazlan.
She proposed that counselling teachers use their abilities to help the local populace, especially families, youths and those with special needs.
“Former drug addicts or HIV-positive individuals can be helped if counselling teachers offer their abilities and lend them their ears.
“Such counselling units and resources are already available. We just need to unify it for maximum impact,” said Maznah after closing a Universiti Tenaga Nasional (Uniten) collaboration meeting with counselling teachers in Muadzam Shah here recently.
Rompin National Counselling Teachers Council chairman Fouzi Singon saidsuch services had been offered to the public but only on an ad hoc basis oron invitation only.
“But we do not highlight it. At our recent annual general meeting, we were informed that 1Malaysia clinics will soon offer counselling services aswell,” he said.
Uniten deputy vice-chancellor Associate Prof Dr Shaari Md Nor said the meeting was to expose counsellors to opportunities for future joint collaborations.
Maznah, who is also the Muadzam Shah assemblywoman, said the meeting would form a positive synergy that would increase the abilities of counselling teachers.
