- Observation as a method of studying the development of an infant in the home a naturalistic setting as against the usual practice of studying the infant in a laboratory or clinical setting. Again the focus of the observation was the experience of close emotional interaction between the mother and child. The observation of students is thus exposed to a whole range of emotions, including some painful feelings. Understanding his or her own experience and reflecting on them is what forms the core of this experiential learning. This method differs fundamentally from the reading of text-books on children development. Observations are encouraged to see and feel rather than simply to learn and attempt to apply theory.
- These seminar's aim is to enable the training to apply observation skills and theoretical concepts that are gain from the study to their current work situation. Trainees can bring accounts of their existing work from a variety of setting including working as counselor at schools/ colleges, working as a teacher, working with deprived children in children’s homes, or working with special groups of children such as hearing or visually impaired children, street children, children in slums and physically and mentally challenge children. These seminars provide an opportunity to understand at greater depth, the various interactions that take place in working situation. These interactions include interactions with the client group and also our relationship with our colleagues and the management of the organization work situation raises various anxieties in us of many different kinds. There is often little opportunity in the place of work to feel supported to bear these situations. Discussions in peer group settings in these seminars are often found to be a valuable in way of sharing and understanding our worries. This in turn, can lead to an enhancement of the personal growth and carrier development of the trainee.
