Behavioral Science Training for other Institutes at Amity University

The continuously evolving world tends to bring with it changes, both good and bad. More so, in today’s times, stress is experienced in every walk of life, be it physiological, psychological, economic or otherwise. In the process, we tend to lose touch of our own ‘self’. Understanding our self from within, helps us know who we are, where we are presently, and where are we headed to. We can handle such stress by aligning our thoughts, emotions and behaviours in a meaningful and constructive manner.

The course for the subject of Behavioural Science has been created keeping these factors in mind. It thus helps the students understand themselves, and further guides them in enhancing their self-esteem, emotional intelligence, communication, positive attitude, behavioural adjustment, stress management skills, coping strategies, professional competencies etc.

The course is activity-driven, where discussions and creativity are encouraged. Students maintain a journal keeping an account of all these activities, which acts as a catalyst in their progress. They are also encouraged to participate in social activity projects at group level, under the guidance of their faculty hoping to instil in them a sense of responsibility towards the community. The objective is to create mature, understanding citizens for our nation, who are ready for future challenges.
