  • Isaac Thomas

    CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY

    "Before I even got to know about the subject of Psychology, I was always deeply fascinated by the intricacies of human behaviour. Falling hopelessly in love with the field in my Bachelors, it was apparent for me to take up Clinical Psychology for my Masters. It was the easiest decision I’ve taken in my life, for Clinical Psychology is the deepest and broadest subfield of Psychology which can satiate my incessant curiosity about the mind and its prowess. Taking the field as my passion & profession was inevitable; it keeps me updated and encourages me to keep amassing new knowledge. "

  • Sharvi Bhansali

    NEURO-PSYCHOLOGY

    "When I first heard about psychology in 10th grade, two things fascinated me. One, that psychology is the study of minds and two, that was that I can choose psychology over my most dreaded subject, maths. Eventually, I realised we are still debating whether or not the brain and mind are individual entities and that psychology being considered a science is heavily dependent on empirical methods a. k. a. maths. The more paradoxes I came across, the greater the subject attracted me. Perhaps, that’s the reason I ended up in Neuropsychology, a field with great strides and yet unlimited possibilities."

  • Himika Bhasin

    HEALTH PSYCHOLOGY
    "I always wanted to understand the link between physical health and mental health. Many of the chronic illnesses, not only require medication and treatment, but therapy as well, since it can be emotionally very taxing for the individual and the family. Hence, I like to work and contribute in the same field, where mental health isn’t suffering alongside a chronic illness. I believe mental health is as important as physical health. Individuals in history haven’t hesitated consulting a GP for a cough and cold, they shouldn’t hesitate before consulting a mental health professional as well. Therefore, I would like to bridge that gap!"

  • Krupa Nishar

    FORENSIC PSYCHOLOGY

    "Everyone thinks that once you study psychology, you have to become a counsellor. However, I didnt want to choose this path. I'm interested in working with criminals and victims and hence, chose forensic psychology. In India, people are not aware that this field exists and hence, the scope is quite limited. My enthusiasm was often met with scepticism. But I'm happy with my choice...While the scope for forensic psychology may be limited, it is constantly growing-it just takes time."

  • Spreeha Bezbaruah

    COUNSELLING PSYCHOLOGY

    "My interest and passion for Psychology evoked when I started noticing my pet dog’s behaviours and various emotional states. From there on, I started observing the people around me and was deeply amazed at the differing behaviours produced by individuals in various situations. From the very beginning I wanted to work in the field of mental health. I believe mental health is as important as physical health and therefore I want to make therapy more accessible and feasible for people."

  • Sakina Mehta

    SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY
    "I came across the topic of sports psychology during my master's program and immediately got intrigued, although the opportunity and awareness about this subject matter was sparse my love for it only kept increasing throughout my diploma! With my ongoing practice with children and adults having athletes as my clients would be a different experience altogether the best part is the sessions can be at their sport's field. The thought process behind playing a sport and to achieve excellence in it via therapy is amusing!"

“But psychology is a more tricky field, in which even outstanding authorities have been known to run in circles, ‘describing things which everyone knows in language which no one understands’”

2nd October'22- Day 2 Schedule

11:30am- 1:00pm: Art Therapy- An Experiential session

Art may aid us in understanding and healing in a variety of ways, making art therapy a diverse field. Art therapy is defined as “a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary mode of expression and communication”. In essence, it entails occupying the mind and encouraging the flow of creative energy, which supports the patient's therapeutic healing. Art therapy is typically regarded as mind-body psychotherapy since it interacts with the mind, body, and spirit in a way that verbal communication cannot. They are made to make it easier for the mind to modify physiological connections and symptoms. It can be used to build resilience, reduce stress, and enhance social skills. 

What you’ll learn: 

• Introduction to Colours
• Introduction to art journaling
• Practising activities such as mind mapping or group exercises

2:00- 3:30pm: Hypnotherapy- An Experiential session

Hypnotherapy is a method that employs hypnosis in the course of treating some health concerns. Hypnotherapy functions by putting a person into a hypnotic or trance state that enables them to concentrate on their inner experiences. A focused state of attention is what is referred to as a trance state. The most common comparison is with daydreaming or "losing oneself" in a book or movie. Despite being fully conscious, a person may tune out some of the external stimuli. The interaction between the conscious and subconscious minds serves as the fundamental foundation for trance state application. Because it lacks the ability to think, the subconscious mind accepts and follows any advice supplied by the conscious mind. Nevertheless, the subject's sense of security endures throughout the experiment. The subject's willingness to participate is crucial. The patient must be willing to comply with any requests made of him by the hypnotist.

What you’ll learn: 

• Introduction to theory of mind and process of hypnotherapy
• Overview of applications of hypnotherapy
• Group Demonstration of Hypnotherapy

3:30- 5:00pm: Intermodal Dance Movement Therapy

Dance movement therapy is the psychotherapeutic use of dance to support an individual's integration of their emotional, social, cognitive, and physical selves with the aim of enhancing their health and well-being. It is founded on the experimentally supported concept that mind, body, and spirit are interdependent and inseparable- changes in the body mirror changes in the mind, and the reverse also holds true. Dance movement therapists employ body movement, the essential element of dance, as the main entry point into their psychotherapy practice, using these precepts to guide their work. They use verbal and nonverbal communication to plan and implement interventions that address the integration of the emotional, social, physical, and cognitive aspects of their clients' lives in individual, couple, family, and group settings.

What you’ll learn:

• Forming new coping strategies for building resilience. 
• Learning emotional regulation
• Stress management
• Experience catharsis
• Experiencing a safe space for emotional awareness
• Practising Mindfulness

Let's meet the Trainers of Day-2

  • Mausam Nagda

    DANCE MOVEMENT THERAPY
    "Around 8 years back, it was then  when I started developing an interest in Psychology. During my training I realised that this is a broader field and mental health was something I was drawn to. Today, it is a significant part of who I am. As a Mental Health Professional, it gives me satisfaction to do more and work towards the individual and collective wellbeing. Currently working as a counselling psychologist and an expressive art therapy practitioner, I strive to contribute towards mental health awareness and accessibility for communities around me."

  • Simran Wahan

    ART THERAPY
    "I've been a traditional abstract artist for 23 years and work on large canvases & textured paper. I use acrylic paints, watercolours, inks, screen prints & gelli prints to make the base of the abstract painting. My work is inspired by nature, culture, emotion, social observations and spiritual learnings. Textures, layers, patterns, character formation and moderation are the essence of my art form. My Master's in Psychology and decades of experience in art brought me to a curiosity about Art Therapy. I'm a full time therapist and I use art as a medium to heal, create,  experience & communicate."

  • Radhika Goyal

    HYPNOTHERAPY
    "I always heard stories and saw shows which depicted people doing some funny acts after getting “hypnotized” against their will or how it was all about optical illusions. But it was only this one time, around 8 years ago, when I got introduced to Hypnotherapy as a field from a Psychiatrist; and I was amazed. I never knew that this trance like state can be used for healthy living, providing therapy and to cure clinical conditions. Well, that was the start, and there was no going back! After that every second that I spent learning about Hypnosis, I felt that there is still so little I know about it. Now, here I am, to be that person for you who introduces you into this natural psychobiological state which can work magically."
