Tête-a-Tête with Alumni

Alumni of an institution can play an immense positive role in higher education transformation. Keeping this in mind Tête-a-Tête series with our school Alumni was organized on 19th & 20th July,2022 for students of class XI & XII who have opted for Psychology as an elective subject. The Launchpad in this direction had   been initiated in the month of April when the school planned extensive Career Counselling sessions by our esteemed alumni.

 

Day 1 was taken by our esteemed Alumni, Mr. Siddharth Trigunayat, batch 2017-18 student who is pursuing Masters in Clinical and Counselling Psychology from the prestigious Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai. He completed his B.A Psychology Honours from Ambedkar University. Considering the fact that the world had lately suffered through a pandemic, people have realised the importance of mental health and actually started taking psychotherapies. The stigma around mental health is gradually coming to an end. Mr. Siddharth strongly believes that there’s a wide scope for psychology and there are many budding professions in the field like art, drama and music therapy and consumer behaviour psychology.

 

Day2, was taken by our very enthusiastic alumni, Ms. Garima Sharma, batch 2019-20 student. She is currently in the final semester of B.A Applied Psychology Honours from Delhi University. The alumni shared her experiences of internships in various branches of psychology and encouraged the students to come out of their comfort zones and explore themselves by participating in internships and gaining real time experiences. She spoke in detail about on-field view of psychology and How to do a Research. In her interactive session, she highlighted the role of different psychologist at work and which research work they do. She explained vividly the scope and importance of research work. Both the sessions were a right mix of theory, practical and anecdotes. The students appreciated the alumni for their great presentation style and also discussing about real life examples which made the sessions informative and enjoyable.
