In my last day of this Cambodia visit I got to observe a Family seminar. It is held by Joseph Keo, who met Finnish church workers while studying in Hong Kong. As a result of that encounter, Joseph is now training Cambodian couples for communication, budgeting and solving out the family issues. Joseph has been training five hundred couples in his three-year career of Family seminar consultant. His training consist of 57 sessions, so it will take about two years for a couple to graduate from this 'course' if you do the exercises every other week.
Today's seminar was about couples supporting each other in their work. Also there was a group exercise about community problems. Each group had to make also a solution for their community's problems. Main problems in Cambodian families in these communities were gambling, drinking, being poor, health issues and violence.
