We are conducting online sessions for children who feel stuck and confined at home during this lockdown. Many reports say that children could get bored, exhausted and sometimes even depressed during this lockdown. Psychiatrist Diego Figuera, Madrid also says that there is a big risk of boredom to turn into apathy as there is lack of physical movement and varieties in the day to day activities among the children. 

To help the children connect to their problems, give voice to their emotions, and to learn techniques to heal we are organizing these sessions. Main focus is on to help the children engage during lock-down, behavior management, relationship issues, improve concentration /focus, anger and aggression management, goal setting, increasing social skills and increasing self esteem.
