  1.  Introduction to Basic  Counselling Skills,
  2.   Child  and Adolescent Counselling,

Mrs. Nyende Sarah, the Uganda Union Education Director, in closing the training requested the participants to go out and “save” the collapsing families. She noted the rate at which divorces are taking place and requested them to be change agents.
