A seminar was organized by ICTRC to address the issue of managing behavioral problems in adolescents, on 20th February2019 at India International Centre, New Delhi.
“Youth today love luxury, have bad manners, no respect for older people and talk nonsense when they should be working.”
This was what Shakespeare wrote about adolescents and youth in the 16th century. Even in the 21st century this description seems to fit adolescents as the adults think. While researchers today have dismissed the notion that adolescence is an inherently challenging period of development, educators and parents seem to have retained it.
Despite common notions about adolescents, they are often energetic, thoughtful and idealistic with a deep interest in what is fair and right. The prominent speakers Dr.Ravindran and Prof. Keshav Singh discussed about the behavioral problems in adolescents and
the importance of inclusive set-up in school.
The role of school and a healthy communication between the school and parents nurtured by mutual trust go a long way in managing such issues. The empowerment of teachers to deal with such issues was also stressed upon. The seminar was attended by Ms. Pratibha Upadhaya and Ms. Shalini Gupta.
