The resource person was Ms. USHA ANAND. The workshop aimed at highlighting different aspects of adolescence life which is a distinct period of human growth and development. Each adolescent from 10 to 19 years of age experience rapid and significant changes that are influenced by the physical, social, political and economic events throughout and how we as educators can normalise these changes by creating self-awareness among the adolescents and the people associated with them, about their behaviours and attitudes which are often misunderstood.

                    The workshop began with an interactive session of understanding the biological, physiological and psychological changes adolescents undergo. It also included discussions and activities on rapid physical maturation, puberty, self consciousness, mood swings, impulsive and irresponsible behaviour. Other issues discussed were body shaming, maintaining personal hygiene, body dissatisfaction, difference between sex and gender, gender sensitisation, nutrition and well- being of the adolescents.

                    Day two began with discussion on more serious issues related to adolescents like peer pressure, bullying, types of bullying, drug abuse and sexual orientation. Some of the activities included incorporation of SWOT analysis, Relationship Map and POWER model.

                    Today, 1.2 billion adolescents stand at the crossroads between childhood and the adult world. Around 243 million of them live in India,who account for a quarter of the country’s population. During this transition stage of life, adolescents experience changes in body, behaviour, desires, emotions and ethics, which may result into increased pressure to be in search of their own identity. Academic curriculum needs to be appropriately designed to meet the increasing demands of a changing knowledge society, values and habits.

                    So as educators this workshop helped us in better understanding the adolescence age and how teachers can help them recognise their qualities and build better citizens leading a happy life and making a difference in the world.
