Dr. Jiji Harner and her husband Rick have developed this seminar to address the need to integrate emotional health with our spiritual lives. Many people hold to a faith that teaches to love God and love others. However, we find ourselves struggling in our relationships with the people closest to us. Why? Because our emotions influence our decisions and actions in ways that are counterproductive to our relationships. We will be looking at 6 principles of Emotional Health that cover such topics as:
- Dealing with the pain and hurt of our past
- What should we do with “negative” emotions like fear, grief and anger
- Learning to listen attentively under stress
- How can vulnerability help my relationships
- Boundaries and how they work
- How seeking approval can destroy my relationships
This seminar is experiential and reflective. You will be given time to journal and discuss your responses to the material presented and the activities. It is ideal to come with a friend or spouse. This seminar will take your relationships to a new level in knowing and understanding yourself and others.

Rick & Jiji Harner are missionaries with New Life Fellowship (Queens, NY) serving in Cebu since 2006.

I had an opportunity to get a quick picture with Dr. Miriam Cue, Chairman of the Board of the Professional Regulation Commission of Psychologists at the recent Oath-Taking of Psychometricians and Psychologists in Cebu at the University of San Carlos Talamban.
After several years of working out educational equivalencies between my American training and the requirements of the Professional Regulation Commission here in the Philippines, I am now a registered Psychologist here in the Philippines.
Before the oath-taking, I met up with some friends: Dr Lemuel Sagaral, Dr Ching Olasiman and some other colleagues.
There were only 5 psychologists confirmed
standing in contrast to more than a hundred psychometricians who took their oath.
After Dr. Cue shared about the changing status of psychology in the Philippines and Asia, Dr. Glenn Garino of University of San Carlos encouraged us with a short message.
Here I am taking my oath
After the ceremony, I ran into Sir Vince Thomas Evangelista . He taught the class at University of San Jose Recoletas that I needed to take to earn my equivalency.
The pinning was done an individual basis. Rick put my pin on after the ceremony
