Emphasizing the importance of counselling, Mr Owusu Agyei urged participants to consciously identify students with problems and if possible, refer them to the professionals at the Counselling Unit.

The workshop also gave the opportunity for participants to be educated on the intentions of a counsellor; the personality of a departmental counsellor; basic tools for counselling and how to gather bio data from students to know their problems.

The aim of the workshop was to bring together the departmental counsellors and to train them to be very effective in managing the present day students.
