Although its my first time signing up for an online course, I thought I'd give it a try.

I chose to do this course because of a few simple reasons. I have 2 teenage daughters .I thought this course would help me understand them better and hence make me a better and understanding parent. Secondly, it would help me understand my fellow humans better. Which in turn would reduce my frustrations .This course delivered all of this and much more. All along, when friends or family members vent out their frustrations or told me about their problems, I would jump and say " don't worry ,everyone goes through this" , or I would say " Its a matter of time, and everything will be okay". This course taught me that these are the things you never say to someone. You never try to find solutions to others problems. Instead ,you provide a listening ear and an empathizing heart, let them vent out their frustrations and have them come up with steps to resolve their own issues. As for the assessment, its great. The mentors tell us how we could have analyzed the situation better, they give us kudos when we do a good job, remind us of the little points we learnt in previous chapters which we forgot to incorporate etc. This helps us analyse the forthcoming case studies in a better fashion. The most important things I take away from this course , is the fact that we should not discriminate or label people as drunkards, addicts, maniacs etc. The course taught me why people behave the way they do. So instead of getting judgemental, we should show sympathy, empathy and if possible lend a helping hand. In future, if I take up counselling as a profession, the course taught me that I should treat all my subjects equally. I should never turn down any one who comes to me for help without trying my best and giving it my all. I am so glad I did the course. I thank my mentors from the bottom of my heart for all their support. I strongly recommend this course to my family and friends.
