To train the counsellors and the workers of PSDF’s Family Counselling Centre in counselling skills Since 2007, PSDF has a counselling centre aimed mostly at women but open to all. Around 500 women every year seek counsel from PSDF through their counselling centre. The Family Counselling Centre (FCC) seeks to prepare individuals and families for meeting a spectrum of life changes and difficulties. It offers counsel to women in order to empower them and contribute to their social development. To achieve these objectives, it offers services aimed at preventing and resolving problems and crises, strengthening family coping skills and locating accessible resource networks. The majority of the FCC's cases concern the following issues: dowry demands, marital maladjustment with spouse and/or in-laws, domestic violence and spousal conflicts due to personality differences, interference of in-laws, extra-marital relationships and/or alcohol or drug addictions or financial problems. PSDF's Self Help Groups also meet with the FCC on the 3rd Saturday of every month to discuss issues covering the subjects listed below with PSDF staff: alcohol abuse, domestic violence, extra-marital relationships and problems in relationships with in-laws (especially property disputes). However, it is not really acceptable in Indian culture to talk about family problems and the FCC is having a hard time really reaching out to the community. The FCC workers do not have any former training in counselling. They are mostly trained social workers. They would like to know how to identify the problem of their beneficiaries and to solve their family problems in a more efficient way. They are multiple unspoken signs which can be taken as signs of ongoing problems. Therefore, it would really help them if they could identify problems through analysing these unspoken signs and without relying only on their beneficiaries telling them there is one. Specialized trainings in family counselling are not easily available in India so PSDF would like some support to train their staff in this field.
