About the Seminar
Adolescents and Youth today face ever increasing challenges. They have access to better resources, better opportunities in education and employment. They have the support of advanced technology, infinite information at their fingertips and live in an increasingly globalised world. The kind of stress that they face is different and more than that faced by the earlier generation. Stepping out of School and into the world of higher education brings with it its own set of pressures and demands. The pressures of constantly competing, striving to be better than the rest and trying to stay afloat, can all take a toll of the emotional and mental health of individuals. They need ongoing training for Life Skills and for building resilience. In this context, it is important to
- Understand the role of Academic institutions and Professional Counsellors to help reduce the pressures faced by youth today.
- Explore areas that can be developed to provide adequate support systems for our youth.
