Delhi SHG met on 15Jan (Sunday) after a long time. It was the first meeting after the National Conference. There were three new members this time Mukesh, Jitendra and Anshul and the surprise of this meet is the new co-ordinator of TISA, Mr. Jai Prakash Sunda (JP Sir). Except them our old SHG members Dr. Kshitiz, Anup, Harshvir, Sikander, Arun, Abhishek, Saurabh and Pramendra were also present. The activities we did are as follows...
Psychological Test: After a brief introduction of one another we shared our experiences from National Conference to the members who weren't able to attend it. After that Sikander sir conducted a test about the psychological effects of stammering on us. There were 15 wonderful questions to be answered in Yes/No only. All of us have filled them honestly and then we assessed discussed and our psychological problems attached with stammering and how to get over with them. JP sir and Pramendra also discussed their practical aspects in our daily life and talked about the importance of observing your problems objectively.
Stammer Effortlessly: After that we divided us in two groups. One group was of all the new members and JP Sir and the other was of rest of the members. JP Sir described some techniques to our new members which will help them to stammer effortlessly.
Group Discussion: The other group of our old SHG members did a Group Discussion on the topic 'Should India improve our relationships with Pakistan' using 'PAUSING' technique. It was a very healthy discussion. All the members shared their point of views while talking with pauses and most of them were very valid and genuine.
