Wofoo Joseph Lee Consulting and Counselling Psychology Research Centre is officially open
Thanks to a generous donation by social entrepreneur Dr Joseph LEE, Wofoo Joseph Lee Consulting and Counselling Psychology Research Centre in the Department of Applied Psychology of Lingnan University is now officially open to develop consulting and counselling psychology researches and associated services.
Located on the second floor of B.Y. Lam Building at Lingnan University, the Centre not only conducts research projects, but also offers psychological consulting and counselling services to students and psychological counselling courses to teachers and parents in the district. Since last September, the Research Centre has been partnering with seven schools in Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai and Tuen Mun to organise regular training courses on counselling tactics for teachers and parents.
In recognition of Dr Joseph LEE’s generosity, the Student Activity Centre, a venue for all-weather sports and recreational activities located in the Multi-purpose Outdoor Sports Ground of Lingnan University, is named Wofoo Joseph Lee Student Activity Centre.
A naming and opening ceremony was organised by the University on 9 April and it was officiated by Prof Sophia CHAN Siu-Chee, Secretary for Food and Health, Dr Joseph LEE, Chairman of Wofoo Foundation, Mr IP Shing Hing, Deputy Chairman of the Council of Lingnan University and president Prof Leonard K CHENG.
President CHENG believes the new consulting and counselling centre will serve the community, promote mental wellness and make positive impact on the society through knowledge transfer. “In the future, the Centre will facilitate research works in the fields of consulting and counselling psychology with an innovative approach. Through active collaborations with schools, hospitals and other non-governmental organisations, it serves to raise public awareness towards children and adolescent mental health."
