Counselling Service in Prison

Jun

(In Basanta’s words) Nepal House Kaski has started to bring counselling to a Youth Prison for the first time. This Juvenile center is on a hill, a little outside from Pokhara. There are 51 teen age boys in the center. Many of them have been involved in murder and rape cases. Very little staff members, police around them makes their life not so easy. I used NHK motorbike to go there. I had an appointment with 6 teen age boys. I met them in a big group few times. Even after meeting them in the group, I had a little nervousness, some excitement and a lot of thoughts all at the same time.

A successful experience running a Children’s Group

We believe learning is a never ending process. Staying in this belief, NHK counselling team decided to run children groups from age 6 – 15. We prepared a manual after some discussions in our team and with our supervisor. We began running the groups with the children and split them in two groups according to their age level. There is special theme in each group. We had challenges working with children where there was a lot bullying happening. One of the group themes was about anti- bullying and we ran that group (we included puppet shows and some stories too with other materials).

We had a very successful AGM last night, we got the chance to honour our volunteers and recognize how far this organization has come. We also had the chance to hear from SFU Professor Dr. Alissa Antle about the research and development they are doing to create software specifically for Nepal House Society. This software can be used by our girls and children in counselling to create better attention capacity and decrease states of agitation or arousal.

A teachers Love

When we started the school we had 12 girls from age 3-6. Their hygiene was so bad – they had sores on their bodies, they were always hungry and dirty and were beaten daily by their parents. It was so hard to control them. They would run from the class and try and run down the street. They hit each other, swore all the time, would bite themselves and others and would get so upset they would pee themselves.
