Pastoral Counseling | American Center for Education

Pastoral Counseling

ACE strives to provide holistic care for each student about the 5 aspects of a person - physical, mental, social, emotional, spiritual.


Physical
During the orientation program, ACE reminds students that they need to look after themselves physically - by getting enough exercise and sleep, by not drinking alcohol (excessively), etc.

Mental
The academic programs offered by ACE address this need.
If the students have any difficulties in their academic study, the academic staff and MT members will provide Counseling services to help the students.

Social
ACE creates opportunities for students to come together to join in the school activities. They not only have fun doing so but also learn social skills.

Emotional The emotional aspect is how a person relates to and accepts himself and his situation. In dealing with students who may need Counseling, Student Service Executives and MT members are sensitive to how to address the emotional and social needs of each student who may be lonely or depressed.

Spiritual
ACE arranges for talks conducted by vice-chancellors or school deans from overseas Universities to inspire students as they might struggle against the difficulties and challenges they face.
