Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, an officer of Nghe An Department of Education and Training, mentioned that according to current statistics in Vietnam, up to 95.2% of homeroom teachers rely on their own experience and personal knowledge to support students but have not been trained in psychological consulting skills or processes.

The training course uses materials compiled by the Ministry of Education and Training in collaboration with the Room to Read Organization to equip participants with some basic psychological consulting skills as well as knowledge of some common psychological counseling areas in high school. Some of the main contents in this training program include counseling on preventing gender-based abuse and school violence; strengthening response and solving problems that arise in relationships with family, teachers, friends, and other social relationships; responding to impacts from social networks...
