More than 1,000 Pattaya students heard advice on how to control their emotions at the city and the Emotional Health Promotion Club organized a one-day workshop aimed at boosting youths’ “emotional quotient.”
Deputy Mayor Verawat Khakhay and officials from the National Health Security Office’s Pattaya branch hosted the July 12 “Marvels at Conquering Tension” seminar at Pattaya School No. 11. Police Col. Pongsak Tangkhana stood as the featured speaker on ridding feelings of tension, having a positive outlook and building self confidence.

Verawat said the plan was to help kids from Pattaya’s 11 schools to control their emotions, avoid confusion in life situations and better understand others. He said youths face many pressures, whether its due to family finances, safety, ill family members, disasters, alcoholism, and relationships.
Therefore, the deputy mayor said, the city seeks to organize activities that boost students “EQ” as well as their IQ, or intelligence quotient.
