Speaking at the opening ceremony, Prof.Dr Pham Quang Minh recognized the importance of studying health behavior in modern society as the health and good lifestyles of each individual are the leading priority in communities and contribute to the whole well-being of a society. However, as modern society is full of lurking difficulties and uncertainties, each individual cannot fully control his/her behavior; so it is necessary to provide one with psychological counseling on how to fix behaviorial abnormalcies.
