Students of Class XII Humanities stream from Birla Bharati School were hosted at Ummeed as part of their educational visit. Their interaction with Ummeed counselors gave them a glimpse into application of positive psychology in the real world as a strength based approach to help individuals with social and emotional well being.

They gained exposure from case studies that address adolescent issues, play therapy and the use of projective techniques as means to provide direction in individual counseling. Team Ummeed wishes this vibrant bunch of young learners all the very best in their future endeavours.


Reflection of the Participants:-


  • "It was a very enlightening experience for us as psychology students to know so much more about counseling. We were at first given an introduction about counseling and we discussed about counseling and we discussed about the myths related to it. Then we dealt with a case study about an adolescent who faces from parental pressure for higher academic performance, after that we discussed about the interventions and solutions as counselors. We also saw a presentation on the play therapy and we actually saw or observed a child for minute or so. Our friend also acted as a subject so that we could get a better understanding about the therapy. It was a really wonderful experience for me personally as I would like to pursue psychology further. Thank you all the teachers." - Shreyanka Chowdhury
  • "It was overall a very good experience. The play therapy was something that grabbed my attention. It was an experience that i am going to remember. The play room where two of my friends portrait as the player we observed them and then conclusions were drawn. I would like to bring my younger brother who is very close to me for the play therapy once. The experience we had was a remarkable one. 'Ummeed' as the name says ray of hope is actually one ray of hope. The best experience i have had as a psychology student." - Palak Chandak
