GUWAHATI, April 12 � FAsCE India, a North-east-based NGO, organised a training programme for teachers on school counselling skills at its head-office at Narengi here from April 8 to 10, said a delayed press statement.
Twenty-eight teachers from 21 schools across North-east India participated in the training. Aimed at empowering teachers to provide quality attention to every child, the sessions familiarised them with knowledge of child rights and sensitised them on various child right violations happening all around.
The programme equipped the participants with necessary counselling skills so that they can make meaningful and quality interventions in the lives of students struggling to keep pace with the demands of the times.
Dr Philip Thomas, a famous psychotherapist and counsellor from the National Vocational Service Centre (NVSC) Pune, conducted the training and accompanied the participants through various practical sessions, equipping them with necessary skills to enable their students to deal with struggles and make way forward.
Initiating the trainees into the world of psychotherapy through introductory theoretical sessions, the trainer led them to a genuine one-to-one hands-on experience of counselling.
The trained teachers are expected to share their know-how with other staff of their given schools and help the students in coping with problems of day-to-day life. FAsCE India will be accompanying them through the accomplishment of the goal of the training, the statement added.
FAsCE India works for the social and educational uplift of the people of the North-east, especially women, children and youths.
