Suneel Vatsyayan Chairperson ,Nada India in conversation with Social work students of Amity Instiute of Social Science NOIDA . The session was moderated by Mr.Prashant R.Chauhan #TobaccoExposedMentor is bacon of light that helps mentee to come out of darkness. Torch is wisdom that mentor is carrying, telling the mentee that if you fall that I am here to pick you up. Mentor has experience which helps the mentee.
- #covid19 Lockdown experience has taught us that we have more time for our families, now we perceive things from different point of view. Our normal behavior has changed and it will further change once the lockdown opens. There is still a chance of falling back in the same pattern of life. What makes us talk about our personal issues? Do you think there is a safe space available with us? Mentor creates a safe space for mentee to come out from his problems and share them as his comfort level.
What is emotional CPR? There is a chance that people feel that we are emotionally dead and we need people to revive us. Through increasing awareness regarding non-verbal communication by connecting deeper to their emotional sense, mentor can give mentee support through E-CPR.Why do we use tobacco and how tobacco industry is using youth to promote tobacco usage?
Since we are vulnerable enough and we do not reach out to our loved once to help us with our problems we resort of tobacco usage. It starts as a habit and then turns into addiction. If they quit, their body will refuse to function how it used to before the usage. Tobacco usage is also connected to our life choices and our social circle. Whenever you have an urge for tobacco usage then have some water or indulge in some activity such as running and be in touch with your feelings and thoughts, share with someone you bank upon.
Q : What complications you faced while giving E-CPR to younger people as compared to the adults? What are the challenges between these two? (Proposed by Ms. Shreya Rao, MSW II Sem)
Ans: “As far as young people are concerned you are disconnected become most of the time what we do is we use our head rather than to use our heart and somehow we lost that art of being emotional and still be in control because we always think that if I am emotional then I become vulnerable, so I don’t want to be emotional, sentimental. It means you are keeping a bomb but you are not aware of that bomb. The bomb can blast at any time and you may think that your head is their but you cannot see from where it can come. You have so much of energy being emotionally charged when you are, so you can do wonders if you are connecting with each other emotionally. But we are lost somewhere because we are using more our head, then our heart. So let us revive that heart but working with yourself as well as by working with others. It is equally challenging if you are not prepared as a supporter of any age you are working with, whether it’s a young child or old.”
Q. Adults are very much manipulative in that case how are we supposed to give E-CPR?
“If you are connecting through head it can be manipulative but if you are connecting through heart then you are very close to the reality. When you create a safe space, he will come out with his real self”
Through this webinar we learned the true meaning of the term “mentoring” and how mentor helps the mentee by connecting to his deeper emotional side. We all know that during this pandemic variety of issues are coming up related to health, depression. As a health advocate we can reach out to the affected people who are facing different problems leading to their disturbing mental health. We learned to use our heart and connect to people’s emotions and give them safe space they require to share their problems.
