Manodaya – The Psychology Clinic
Centre for Psychological Enhancement
In simple English, Manodaya means — Uplifting of the Mind. At Manodaya, thus, human mind has a special place, based on the belief that Mind is Man. It is in the mind that the individual is made or marred. The aim, therefore, is to help people to keep the mind-space as uncluttered as possible, which appears particularly difficult in the complexity of modern life. Despite this, if the individual gets appropriate expert support, he, or she, can keep the mind-space clean and free for creative, meaningful pursuits that ultimately give the person a sense of attainment.
Therapy and Counseling
Manodaya – The Centre for Psychological Enhancement is busy providing to the needy, various psychological services such as psychometric testing including assessments of Intelligence, Personality, Learning Disorders , Aptitude , plus many other clinical tests.
Manodaya also offers psychotherapy and counselling for a variety of mental health related issues.
Study Classes for Children with Learning Difficulties
Regular classes are held for children with difficulties in reading, writing, spelling, grammar, memorizing, languages, arithmetic, and concentration. The classes are for children from Std 2 to Std 6. The program aims to train the child through special methods to bridge the gap between his intellectual potential and his academic achievement and to become self reliant. It aims to develop attention, memory and to discipline the child in good study habits and a love for learning.
Another core competency available at Manodaya is self-growth and Personality Development Training programmes (PDP) for children, youths and adults, and Human Resource Development (HRD) programmes with behavioural inputs for corporate sector executives.
Social Work Projects
