Barefoot Counselling Skills Workshops

held at Ravidas Camp, New Delhi

from 16 Nov. to 14 Dec. 2015.

BCS is a Three-week programme, systematically designed to facilitate participants in gaining a better

insight into themselves and to develop their Communication skills. It helps strengthening their relationship with members

in the family, people at work place and society at a large. Besides, it aims at imparting knowledge and fostering awareness in

the areas of perception, communication, attending and responding, relationships, mental illness, suicide and alcoholism.

This Workshop is held in the month of August every year and is immensely popular.

SANJIVINI is a registered non-profit voluntary organization. It provides free and confidential counselling to people

faced with a situation that causes emotional and mental distress.

The workshops were held in a series of sessions and covered issues of counselling perception,

communication skills, understanding relationship, reproductive health, gender sensitization,

teenager’s issues, alcoholism, awareness about mental issues,
domestic violence, suicide, stress and crisis, etc.

The Workshops were an effort to sensitize people working or intending

to work in communities especially with young children. The need for the workshop at the community

level in the cities arises as we observe tremendous domestic violence in all its forms—drug abuse, alcoholism,

gender biases and crime against women by known and unknown people in the communities.

Acupressure and Sleep

Quality sleep is vital for a person's well-being.

Awareness programme for students on how to beat exam-stress.

Examination time is a time when students face stress, arising out of pressure of increasing competition, and parent's expectation, resulting in anxiety, depression and sleeplessness.  All these can adversely affect their performance in the examination. Acknowledging the significance of exams in lives of youngsters, Sleepwell Foundation, in association with Hindustan Times, launched an awareness drive during exam-time in various schools and colleges by putting posters on ‘How to manage Exam Stress.’

The campaign was well-received by the audience.
