On 28th January 2023, Niraivagam Psychological Services began the first session of the eighty-hour hands-on experience certificate workshop on Counselling and psychotherapy. 30 participants are to be trained in this workshop. Dr. H. Charles was the chief guest for the programme (TNSDC). Rev. Dr. Joseph Jeyaraj SDB, director of the Niraivagam is the resource person for this 8-month long workshop. Fr. Ravi, assistant director and Mrs. Viola Charles are organizing it capably.
Participants will be trained in two important therapies namely, Person-Centred Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. Mental health professionals, students of psychology and MSW, and few others who have completed their post-graduation in other fields are participating in this programme. It is an enticing learning experience which all have enjoyed.
We thank our Assistant Director, Fr. Ravi and Mrs. Viola for assisting our Director in organizing this 8-month long workshop
