  • Pre- Primary Teacher Training at Gopal Sharma Group of Schools.

    Trijog conducted a power-packed interactive session on Identification and Remediation of learning and behavioural concerns for the pre-primary teachers of Gopal Sharma International School, Powai.
    One of the beautiful highlights of this session was how the crowd was extremely interactive and the way our therapists who facilitated the session- Mrs. Madhura Patwardhan and Ms. Isha Haria seamlessly handled queries from the participants. Kicking off the session by diving into mindfulness, the therapists presented definitions of mental health, various statistics, human development, the difference between difficulty and disability and how important it is to identify learning and behavioural concerns as early as possible.
    The entire session while mainly focusing upon common yet less understood concerns like Autism, Specific Learning concerns like Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Intellectual concerns and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) also provided practical and useful strategies to deal with the wide spectrum of concerns for the utmost benefit of the child. For instance, Signs to identify ADHD like the child failing to complete his homework, making careless errors and getting distracted easily were explained.
    Integrating explanations with exciting activities is what Trijog does the best! With the participants performing multiple activities like reading a foreign language and sentences spaced haphazardly, they gained a personal understanding of what the child might be going through. Thus the importance of patience, of being more supportive, of guiding rather than "telling" was highlighted.
    An instance of management strategies provided to teachers for Autism included dividing the classroom into smaller groups during lessons and use a lot of encouragement and specific reinforcements.
    Many such positive and applicable strategies like "praise them and raise them", assign a buddy, and creating a calm and nurturing environment were given to equip the teachers better.
    All in all, it was brilliant session which not just gifted the participants a heightened sense of empathy for their students and a large amount of valuable information but gave Trijog an amazing memory to carry back from the session.



  • Let’s Play- Trijog @ SNDT College

    “We are never more fully alive, more completely ourselves, or more deeply engrossed in anything than when we are playing.” –Charles Schaefer
    Trijog held an enriching workshop on Play Therapy for the Post-Graduate Psychology students of SNDT College, Mumbai by our Founder/Director and renowned Clinical Psychologist Mrs.Anureet Sethi and Counselling Psychologist Ms.Revati Raja. With the content for the session being picked from the textbooks of SNDT College itself, it was made all the more relatable to students even as interactive activities kept the energy high.
    Focussing on the tenets of play therapy and building it around interactive activities, the session by our psychologists was indeed an interesting and informative one.
    The session started off with the popular childhood game that each of us cherish: Name, Place, Animal Thing. Brings a smile doesn’t it? The participants played this game and late analysed their thoughts and feelings while the engaged in it, whether it took them back to their childhood and whether there was anyone not having fun?
    While the unanimous and enthusiastic answer was that everyone enjoyed it for it helped them forget their problems and stressors, the point emphasized was that it wasn’t always necessary that people or children need to enjoy a game. There might be someone who might not have fun which needs to be considered too.
    Elaborating upon Play Therapy, they explained what procedures it involves and how it guides the adult to view the world from a child's perspective when with the child. For instance, as a part of play therapy, a child while playing with dolls might speak about how the mother (doll) dies. Through this enactment, the child communicates his concerns with the therapist.
    Play therapy is a natural tool to make the child comfortable but it is highly essential to have "therapy goals". Each session designed should seek a goal that is to be met. It could be understanding the child better or gauging his emotions better, etc.
    Various types of Play Therapy like Child Directed Play Therapy, Therapist Directed Play Therapy, Collaborative Play Therapy and their sub-types were also explained.
    That all therapies have their core values and shortcomings was also stressed upon. For instance, in child-directed play therapy, the child's interpretations of situations that they have experienced might need further help.
    Why does Play Therapy work? It helps bonding with the child, establishing a comfortable connection in an environment that the child adapts to easily. It doesn't a fixed approach, for it is tailored to suit each child's needs.
    Towards the end, the participants were divided into groups and given case studies based on which they had come up with a session plan and role play them. Each group was highly enthusiastic and put up interesting acts. Mrs.Anureet Sethi then provided some valuable insights as to where the plans could have been better and offered alternative solutions.
    With the wealth of information and the amount of practical knowledge gained, the participants had a lot to take back from the session!


  • International Women’s Day at WhiteCrow Research

    Organizations form the Crux of a nation's economy and people or employees form the core of that organization.
    Doesn't the emotional and mental wellness of employees become all the more important?
    Our Founder, Ms. Arushi Sethi conducted a motivational session at WhiteCrow Research on the occasion of International Women's Day, March 8th 2019.
    - BEYOND ROLES AND TITLES
    She started off by introducing herself not as an entrepreneur but as a human being, devoid of any titles or roles, in turn asking the members to introduce themselves in a similar manner. Thus establishing a safe and comfortable space for each individual to participate in, she spoke of her journey and how we need to appreciate and live the moments, the life we have been so beautifully blessed with. For this moment is truly all that matters.

    - PURPOSE-EXISTENCE-CELEBRATION Focussing her session on "Purpose-Existence-Celebration", she spoke of how above all that we assume ourselves to be, we need to understand who we truly are and why we do what we do.
    She helped every soul look beyond the outer coverings of conditioned roles into the depths where nothing but happiness resides. That something is Consciousness, the very core of every human being.

    - PURPOSE AND EXISTENCE Our purpose lies not in ambitions, which doesn’t belittle them. Ambitions are important. But our purpose lies in what we to become as human beings - Compassionate? Peaceful? That is for us to decide. Often we end up confusing our ambitions with who we truly want to be. She also pointed out the importance of putting presence and compassion into our actions and commitments.

    - CELEBRATION Who defines happiness? What are these "parameters"? Who decides what happiness means to you? Happiness could be cooking up a humble meal of Maggi or soaking in the first monsoon rain. It could be anything! Our very essence is happiness. So why not experience and not label it?
    Finally coming to Celebration, Arushi emphasized on how if we truly believe in ourselves, in the beautiful and joyful version of ourselves that we wish to become, the universe no matter what finds its way to fulfil our dreams! For the truest wish of a pure and determined heart never goes unheard. Let us celebrate our dreams, our lives.
    She also stated how this day was actually International Human Beings' Day. Why celebrate ourselves on one single day? Let's celebrate ourselves each day!
    Emphatically she concluded, "Let 2019 be not what you dreamt of. Let 2019 be that year where you'll achieve all that you haven't even dreamt of!"

  • Know Your Mind: An Interactive Session With The Parents

    Trijog conducted a mental health awareness workshop with parents on 9th February 2019, at the Abhay International School. The goal of this workshop was to help parents gain a deeper knowledge of mental health and issues surrounding it as well as knowledge about concerns commonly seen in children and measures to be taken for the same.
    The session began with mindfulness meditation followed by a discussion between with the parents about what is mental health. Our therapists defined mental wellness and how it refers to a broad array of activities directly and indirectly related to mental well-being, prevention of mental health conditions, treatment and rehabilitation.
    They explained what what caused mental health conditions, be it genetic, psychological, social or other causes. Busting some myths like people with mental health issues are violent and dangerous, that mental health conditions can never be treated was highly vital.
    They highlighted how important it is to sit with one's child and understand their issues, give them the freedom to express their emotions and provide a safe and nurturing environment. An example of how if a child is not good academically active then it doesn't mean he's not intelligent was given to explain normality and abnormality. For instance those with an IQ of 90-100 are considered to be "normal" while those with an IQ below 90 or above 100 are considered to be "abnormal" or "specially abled." Simple steps to mental well-being both for ourselves and for others like setting realistic expectations, giving equal importance to both physical and mental health concerns, inculcating good eating and sleeping habits were explained.
    With the parents participating enthusiastically, the session turned out to be an enlightening and informative one.


  • The Mental Health Jam- Mental Health in the Age of Social Media

    After a highly successful inaugural session, the second edition of the Mental Health Jam Series held on 12th February at the SoHo House, Mumbai focussed on “Menta Health in the Age of Social Media”.
    With the aim to champion wellness in and out, this discussion was led by Arushi Sethi- Founder, Trijog, Kakul Faruqi- Our Expert Therapist and The Artidote’s Jova Ferryra.
    The Artidote is a virtual community and space where can story tell, empathise, bond and heal through art. The platform carries a cumulative following of over 3.5 million individuals worldwide.
    As the discussion flagged off, Kakul and Jova spoke of their personal inspiring trysts with mental health, what made join this field, what kind of work they do and why they are here today.
    With social media taking up most of our attention and time in this age, how does it impact our mental health? Is it beneficial or does it end up causing more harm? Like any issue, this one too has two sides: the pros and cons.
    While Kakul spoke of how as a therapist that she thinks social media impacts an individual’s self-image, how it can both help boost it as well as damage it and where we should strike a balance for our well-bring. She elaborated upon how it influences human behaviours and the way we engage in and view our relationships. How for instance uploading an image of a lovely time with friends can help us cherish that moment and re-live, the appreciation of special moments in our lives shouldn’t become based on whether they are Instagram-worthy or not.
    Jova spoke of how what is the importance of social media, how it can positively impact the community and how our interactions on it in our daily life impacts our mental health. As an example, for some looking at the sunrise instead of aimlessly scrolling through their social media feed might be more liberating and refreshing while for someone else, a random dog’s image on Instagram can turn a dull day into a beautiful one!
    Jova also answered questions on how running a successful mental health platform like The Artidote on social media has influenced his opinion of how it can impact the self-worth of a human being and how it offers a common community to people to learn new things and imbibe new practices for their mental and spiritual well-being.
    The conclusion of this insightful session was that social media truly has both tangible and intangible effects, that it impacts our self-image and self-worth depending on our own perceptions, it influences our ideals, our behaviours and our complexities and relationships.
    Thus it ends up impacting our mental health, because our ideals, relationships and behaviours are a by-product of our mental health.

    On 12th January, 2019, greeting a crowd of enthusiastic students at IIT Bombay's Abhyuday Fest, each of them eager to learn more about mental health, Arushi Sethi began with the heart-warming words, "Before all my titles, I am a part of this beautiful creation, a human being. And I belong to you. Each and every one of you."
    With this session, her goal was to go beyond the titles, the faces and names and look within. To create a safe space and haven for all to share their own life experiences. To understand the mind, its feelings and thoughts.
    She spoke of her journey, her own tryst with mental health and the inspiring birth of Trijog.
    She then went on to explain why the mind is important and what is the mind, for isn't the most mysterious and interesting phenomenon? It can go everywhere yet be nowhere, all at the same time!
    With the students completely engaged, she went on to do an activity wherein the students drew what they felt their minds looked like. Some of them shared their reflections where one had drawn a flowerpot and shared as to how her mind felt like one.
    Arushi then spoke of the triangle of thoughts-feelings-actions which end up defining the experiences of our lives.
    With the key message of the session being to understand and accept our thoughts and emotions, she ended the session with a small yet transforming activity titled "The Journey Inwards."
    Everyone was asked to close their eyes and move to soothing music playing in the background. Then they were asked to pose with their eyes closed, with the hidden message that the pose they chose expresses the current state of their minds.
    This session for everyone, was truly a beautiful insight into their own selves, an unwinding time for their minds.
