Our Principal, Mrs. Shivani Gupta, attended the National Summit of School Principals at Delhi on February 26, 2020 organised by Institute of Counsellor Training Research and Consultancy (ICTRC). The topic of the leadership summit focused on “Managing Behavior Problems in Adolescents – New Challenges”.
The speaker Dr. V.S.Ravindran is an eminent psychologist and counsellor with a rich experience spanning decades in the field. He stressed upon the need for understanding the adolescents and identifying the root cause behind any kind of deviant behaviour that is observed in students. He also spoke upon the need to understand adolescence as a phase of life that is unique in its challenges and adopting a child-centered approach.
Prof. Keshav Singh, the coordinator for Project Paradigm, a flagship programme of ICTRC, further addressed the gathering and spoke on how to manage adolescents’ problematic behaviour. He talked about teaching children ‘frustration tolerance’ and also building up ‘reciprocal trust-connect’ with them.
There were other speakers from the industry who focused upon some new avenues that are upcoming for the students.
The meet was a learning experience, further enriched by the insights of the pedagogues present.
