Discipline: Education



Fifty one seminarians, nine formators/priests, four

counselors and 29 parents reviewed the existing set up of

the Divine Word Formation Center-Davao (DWFC-D).

The Edwards Personal Preference Schedule and Problem Experiences

Checklist were used to identify the seminarians’ needs and problems.

The seminarians favorably perceived the specific features of DWFC-D

but the counselors and formators perceived them as available

but inadequate. The parents showed inadequate orientation but

generally positive attitude towards the guidance program. The top

three problems centered on goals, peers and emotional concerns.
