It is a known fact that human mind is unreadable and human actions are unpredictable. That too the adolescent stage is very dubious and to understand an adolescent is a challenge. Hence Hongirana Independent PU college conducted a workshop on Psychometric Assessment Programme ‘ Sankalpa’ for the students of 1st PU on 17th and 18th of November 2018. The programme was planned and executed by three eminent and experienced doctors and clinical psychiatrist from Aapyam Ayurveda Foundation Sagar – Dr. Niranjan Hegde , Dr. Nikhila Hirematt and Dr. Shriharsha.

On 17/11/2018 each student was interacted personally and separately by the doctors for 10-15 minutes about the response that they have with the questionnaire. The interaction helped the doctors to know the child personally.
