Psychosocial counseling training

Tarangini Foundation completed a training for psychosocial counselors who are equipped with the skills to improve well-being, alleviate distress and enhance coping skills for individuals, families, and groups. The organization recognizes the unique challenges faced by women in patriarchal societies, where they are constantly under surveillance, leading to high levels of stress, anxiety and other mental health issues. Tarangini’s counselors have already made a positive impact in emergency situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic and flooding in Sindhupalchowk. They have undergone training that not only equips them to heal individuals, but also to understand and apply feminist values in their practice. The 8th batch of trainees have completed two phases of the training, including practical work, and are moving towards the third phase, after which they can officially become psychosocial counselors. Tarangini is excited to welcome these new counselors who are ready to work from a feminist perspective.
