SUPPORT GROUP FOR PARENTS

PARIVARTHAN is happy to introduce a new service – a SUPPORT GROUP for parents.

A space for parents to interact

Being aware of the issues and concerns that parents bring to Parivarthan both in our Training Programmes and through our client work, we felt that there is a need to provide a “space“ for parents to meet and interact and where parenting concerns could be addressed.

This Support Group will be held once a month for 3 hours. The maximum number would be limited to 14 participants and the Session would have 2 Counsellors/Trainers from Parivarthan as Facilitators.

Who can participate?

This will be an OPEN Group i.e. anyone who is a parent can register to attend the monthly session.

What will be shared in this space?

This space will be used to discuss and learn more about becoming sensitive and effective parents. We hope to provide a safe place to share concerns about children / adolescents – with the possibility of finding one’s own, best way of dealing with issues.

Learn more

If you wish to be informed of the dates/times of the PARENTS SUPPORT GROUP each month, please do get back to us by email at parivarthanblr@gmail.com.

The next session will be held on March 26, 2014. The fee is Rs. 500/- per participant.

In Memory of Dr. Raj Bammi

Dr. Raj Bammi who was the President of Parivarthan’s Executive Committee since we began in 1995, passed away suddenly on Saturday, December 15, 2012.

He was a great support and was the guiding force behind Parivarthan all these years and we are going to miss him terribly.

About Parivarthan

Parivarthan (Sanskrit for transformation) is a counselling, training and research centre dedicated to promoting positive change in the individual.

Counselling as a ‘profession’ is still very new in India. In fact there is no parent body or Accreditation Association in the country which results in a kind of “free for all’’ scenario both in the practice of counselling and in the training of counsellors.

Counselling as a professional service needs to be practiced by trained counsellors because, to quote Dr. Shekhar Seshadri, Professor, Department of Psychiatry, NIMHANS, “in the field of Counselling, good intentions are not enough; to be trained is essential”.

It was with this premise, that Parivarthan was started in 1995 to provide counselling by trained counsellors to individuals, couples and families in emotional distress and to offer a comprehensive one year training in both the theories and skills of counselling.

What makes the Parivarthan experience different is the respect that we have for the confidentiality of our clients, our belief that it is extremely important for our counsellors to be in ongoing counselling themselves and that supervision is an essential part of the practice of counselling.
