BENGALURU: As part of the ongoing International Conference on Women, Child and Social Welfare (ICWCS-2014) at J N Tata Auditorium, Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Motherhood on Monday conducted a one-day certification programme on ‘Child Abuse and Neglect: Recognising, Reporting, and Responding For Educators.’
Motherhood is a birthing clinic. The workshop touched upon topics like awareness on child safety, psycho-social and psycho-dynamic support for child abuse victims, and child psychology and vulnerability.
The programme saw a session by Maya Menon, founder director of The Teacher Foundation, on ‘Listening to Children’ where she spoke about how to establish a proper listening system in schools to allow a child to express himself.
She told the 100 teachers present at the workshop that “a caring school is a listening school.”
Motherhood neonatologist Dr Prathap Chandrashekar said, “How to keep a child safe, how to help the child through the trauma of rape and how to stop it, these are the things we have tried to highlight through this programme.”
