A FEW WORDS ON THE THERAPIES


PHARMACOTHERAPY & PSYCHOLOGICAL THERAPY

Regular Medical Check up (including physical check up) and treatment are carried out. Group and individual counseling sessions and psychological exercises are held keeping in mind the specific ailments and needs of the individuals.

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

This has been planned to aid the patients to achieve greater motor co-ordination and also towards learning crafts which may equip them with the necessary skills to achieve economic sufficiency. Currently apart from domestic skills, vocational skills like sewing, weaving, food processing are undertaken.

COGNITIVE THERAPY

Activities like elementary counting and calculations, use of basic linguistic and communication skills --- structured to bring up the nascent intellectual faculties, which are the pre-requisites for our day to day social interactions.

SOCIAL & CULTURAL THERAPY

Designed to awaken the dormant human capacities of imagination and creativity, and also to help to release constructive emotional feelings through music, art, dancing, meditation, yoga etc.

To develop the social interaction skills, activities like games, outings, picnics, public performances etc. are organized and visits by families from the communities and friends of Paripurnata are encouraged.
