Workshops for Schools

We conduct workshops and trainings for parents and teachers on how to interact more effectively with their children and students.

We also conduct trainings with shadow teachers who help provide focused attention onto a child.

These trainings and workshops also help parents and teachers focus on their own psychological health as well.

Workshops We Conduct

Parental Counseling

Parental counseling aims to change parenting behaviors and teaching them positive reinforcement methods that they can apply on improving their child’s behaviors. This training is particularly given to the parents of children who show aggression, hyperactivity and have difficulties following directions. Nevertheless, other parents can also benefit from the program so that they are able to avoid or reduce the occurence of friction with their child. The main focus here is providing positive reinforcement where parents learn to reward appropriate behavior through social rewards (smiles, praises) as well as concrete rewards. It also teaches them to set appropriate limits using structured techniques to their child’s negative behavior. Such programs can also be implemented in collaboration with the child’s teacher so that the child’s progress can be monitored in the school setting as well.

Family Therapy

Children learn how to interact and form relationships in their lives from their early experiences of their relationship with their family. Family therapy is a type of psychological counselling that focuses on resolving conflicts within the family by improving communication. It can help deepen family connections and understand each other better. A family therapist looks at the child’s difficulties within the larger context of the family system rather than individual deficits. The therapist tries to observe how the family interacts and understand the family dynamics. Family members are made to work proactively in minimising behaviours that contribute to the child’s unwanted behavior and learn to support the child better.

Shadow Teacher Training

The demand for shadow teachers has grown over the past years, around the globe. A shadow teacher is a facilitator who works with children struggling with emotional and behavioral problems and focusses on the development of their academic, social and behavioral skills. They work closely with other therapists and provide one on one assistance to the child and help him or her perform the task. They adapt and structure the tasks according to the child’s level of performance. Shadow Teacher Training can help students with dyslexia, students with hearing and visual impairment, learning difficulties, physical disabilities and emotional and behavioral problems.

Group Therapy for Parents

Parents of children with different needs are identified as having a greater risk for depression, anxiety and feelings of hopelessness. A group therapy session for parents facing similar issues can enable them to navigate a path to better management of their children’s problems. Seeing their other peers sail through their milestones might worry parents and make them feel alone and confused. Connecting with parents facing similar issues can help parents feel more grounded and less alone in their journey. Along with providing a safe space it can help parents learn new strategies to solve the problems they are facing. Seeing other parents managing better and helping their child achieve their full potential can also instill a sense of hope and inspire parents.

Awareness Programs on LD

Around 5-9% of the population has a learning difficulty and dyslexia is the most common among them. Many of these students often drop out of school even though they are as smart as their peers due to lack of support. Learning difficulties can affect children’s academic performance depending on its severity. Early diagnosis and adequate support and management can help the child achieve their full potential. Learning difficulties impacts the child’s self esteem and instills a fear of failure in them which affects their level of motivation. No two students with LDs are the same and it’s important for teachers to be aware of common warning signs and symptoms. These children can succeed as well as their peers, but they need adequate learning methods and emotional support.

Stress management

These are skills that last a lifetime and can also help your child build more confidence. This will help you be healthier, happier, be more balanced and have a positive outlook to life. There is no parent that doesn’t experience stress while raising their children.
