COUNSELLING FOR ADOLESCENTS: A Learning Manual

The following protocols have been developed to provide counselors with a comprehensive practical guide to address 6 sensitive adolescent health concerns drawn from the national level- Rashtriya Kishor Swasthya Karyakram, namely: relationship concerns, academic concerns, violence, substance abuse, sexual and reproductive health and suicide.

 

These protocols are intended to help counselors in their therapeutic work with clients, specifically the adolescent population. They provide a brief yet in-depth overview of what can be done to help a client in distress that approaches a counselor in the Ujala clinic. Sensitive topics such as breaching confidentiality in certain cases, ensuring the client's safety, dealing with exam anxiety, working with trauma have been described in detail. Additional (yet necessary information that was considered important) information has been provided in the annexures attached with the protocols along with references so that counselors can access these resources whenever possible.
