The Growing up Years workshop

The Growing up years programme was conducted in the second week of August by a leading psychologist Mrs. Jyotsna Bharadwaj from classes V to XII. She specializes in delivering workshops to adolescents and teenagers on the crucial growing up years where children generally grapple with all kinds of new changes. Separate sessions were conducted for boys and girls of different year groups and were tailored according to the problems experienced by them. The duration of the session was 2 hours each. The session were centered around providing comfort and clarification from confusion that comes along with all the changes that take place in the minds of children from the mental, physical and emotional view point. The sessions throughout were highly interactive and brought a lot of questions to the forefront which the students were hesitant to articulate previously. There was also a follow-up session done by the school counselor to clarify any other concerns.
