Post Graduate Diploma in Social Work Counselling would provide both academic learning and professional education and training in counselling, extending beyond theoretical knowledge. This programme is tailored to suit counsellors working in a wide range of organizational and community context as well as individuals in a family. With the fast changing social scenario, the problems being faced by people from across the board are many. Unlike in the western world, counselling services are very inadequate in India. There is a growing demand for counsellors in schools, corporate sector, health care setting, social and welfare sectors, correctional settings etc. However, schools/universities where counselling course/programme are taught in India are very few. There is an urgent need for specially trained counsellors to handle the stress of employees working with call centres, corporate sectors, families, family courts, correctional settings, school, universities and educational institutions, rehabilitation centres, refugee camps, institutions for the differently abled, aged child care and adoption centres, family planning, voluntary counselling and testing centres, rural sectors especially where farmers are drivento commit suicide, de-addiction centres etc. This programrne would enrich the functionaries working in NGOs, welfare agencies as well as in human resources management.
