Promoting “Buut-therapy” to Babag residents

Faculty, parents, guardians and students spend time with Cebu Technological University extensionists in Babag Elementary School to learn “Buut-therapy.”

Babag Elementary School (BES) in Lapu-lapu City signed the MOA on Monday, agreeing to  CTU’s proposal to  conduct counseling among the former’s constituents.

Students Affairs Dean Vicente Igot  is prepared to share his knowledge on “Buut-therapy” once a week.

‘Buut’,  a Cebuano-Visayan term for behavior, is a distinct style of making an individual understand himself through its formula: will + mind + emotion = courage, truth, love and life.

The therapy is also geared toward aiding individuals who might have encountered problems or issues in life, especially those in the teaching-learning aspect.

“Happy kaayu ku sa opportunity nga gihatag sa DepEd and BES [nga nakiglink sila diri natu] (I am very happy that  DepEd and BES decided to partner with CTU ),” Dr. Igot said.

Dr. Vicente Igot informed Babag Elementary School of Cebu Technological University’s intent to extend help through “Buut-therapy.”

Working closely with Dr. Igot is Dr. Porferio Almerino who has had numerous experiences with augmenting students’ performance in the classroom. 

Having to do with transforming the lives of individuals, CTU College of Education compliments the effort by pledging to  provide profession-related colloquia, research symposia, entrepreneurial workshops, students’ case management and other related services. 

BES, on the other hand, will facilitate the implementation of the agreement to ensure the success of the program.

Residents of Lapu-lapu City themselves, Dr. Igot and Dr. Almerino are  well-acquainted with the people.

Dr. Igot quipped: “We chose BES because it is closer to our heart.”

Schools Division Superintendent Marilyn Andales, LLC District Supervisor Fe Gultiano and BES Principal Melodina Wahing shared the positive response toward Dr. Igot’s group, creating a healthier and more productive environment for everyone involved in a span of one year. UPO
