Manav Samman organised its 3rd meet on 26.5.18. Dr. Priyanka Pandey (clinical psychologist) spoke about the significance and importance of being mentally health and followed this with relevant games and activities.
Activities were as follows –
- ‘Know Yourself’ – each attendee spoke about themselves as well as their qualities.
- ‘Pick up the Token’ – under this activity people randomly picked a token paper which had been marked with an activitiy like song, dance, jokes, advertising etc. and they had to perform accordingly.
- ‘Yoga and meditation’- under this Dr. Priyanka guided them all on a yoga skill to promote basic concentration and followed this with positive affirmations and meditation.
- ‘Playing with Colors’ – in this activity each member of the Samman family put their hands into a colour plate and place it on chart paper with their autograph (see photo).
Playing games or performing certain activities is incredibly important for a personality development – helping to shape key social, creative, language, emotional, cognitive and physical processes. As a result, play therapy can help in a variety of ways, although exactly how will depend greatly on individual needs. The approach is considered particularly important for people who may have difficulty expressing themselves verbally.
Happy to inform you that our next Manav Samman meeting will be held on 30.6.18 timing 4.30 onwards.
