Anyone watching the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 or the Wimbledon Men’s Final 2019 will know what pressure games are like! As a member of the audience, we got hooked to the proceedings on the field. We jumped in our seats, sweated and at the end, were either elated or disheartened. Now imagine what the situation was on the ground for these sportsperson? They were playing a game with millions of fans hanging onto everything they do. A mistake and everything would be lost. 

Sports psychologists

If you thought that this pressure was meant only for high profile sportsperson, you cannot be farther from the truth. Any youngster playing the sport today, at any level, is subject to scrutiny. For them, the expectations of fans may not be there, but the weight of proving themselves is surely there. There are overbearing parents waiting for them to succeed, the players have high demands from their own skills and there is competition from peers to take the pedestal to the next step. All of this can be quite daunting. 

Any sportsperson wilting under pressure is bound to falter. This is where sports psychologists come into the picture. Earlier on this Moner Alo blog, we had talked about how sports psychologists can help. The demand for trained and professional sports psychologist in Kolkata is getting denser by the day. Sports aren’t just fun and games anymore, after all. It is a career option and unless youngsters settle their mental issues first, they are not going anywhere forward. Teams are hiring sports psychologists for mental conditioning. If professional sportsperson need psychological counselling, you can only imagine what rookies will need. 

What is the job of a sports psychologist? To put it simply, all they do is to help you turn your negative emotions of fear and anxiety into hope and tenacity. Fear of failure, for example, can be quite a challenge. If you convert this fear into energy to perform better, you will be a better player. A sports psychologist can help you achieve that. A sports psychologist in Kolkata will help you understand yourself better, in turn helping the process of preparing for a match and staying stable through it.

Why-Parents-Of-Teenagers-Need-Counselling-1.png
18/Jul/2019

The educational scene of Kolkata is vitiated because of the shocking suicide of a teen-aged school girl in the school premises. We wrote about this earlier in a blog post as to how teenagers need psychological counselling in order to deal with stress in school, and beyond. Of late, the school in question, along with several other schools in Kolkata has engaged trained psychologists to speak to the children enrolled with them. However, the general consensus is that the buck cannot stop with psychological counselling only for the kids. The parents of these teenagers should be kept in the loop as well. 

Many parents of Kolkata schools are writing to school authorities to get access to the psychological counselling sessions that are arranged by the school. Their view is that parents have a right to know what is going on in the minds of their children. While this is important, it is also crucial that children get a platform to share their concerns and fears without parental interference. More often than not, the parents themselves are the cause of the child’s worry and anxiety! That is why they will not be able to open up their minds and hearts when parents are around during counselling or therapy sessions. 

Parents have to take care of their psychological counselling needs on their own, separate from what the schools are doing. They should get in touch with the best psychological counselling institute in Kolkata, MonerAlo.com. Parents have to discuss a variety of topics that affect their teenaged children. For example, lack of adjustment between parents or violence, be it physical or emotional, can have a strong effect on the child. Parents have to be aware of how they are behaving around children in order to stop any negative impact. 

What has really shone through after psychological counselling sessions with parents and children is the lack of time that parents devote for family bonding. Buying expensive gifts and goodies for children to compensate for lack of time is not an option. Most children get frustrated because their dad or mom is seldom around. It’s true that they have the compulsions of modern life that keep them away. But psychologists advice to strike a balance. Neglect can play havoc with the minds of children.

Do-Toddlers-get-Depression_.png
18/Jul/2019

It was only in the late 1980s that the topic of depression among toddlers first came into the picture. Earlier, just as most people today, depression among toddlers was unheard of, primarily because no one bothered to evaluate. With modern psychologists expanding the ambit of their study, and interest, toddlers are now diagnosed with depression and even bipolar disorders. So, if your toddler looks depressed, like an adult would look when they are feeling down, there are chances that your toddler is actually suffering from depression. 

There are different types of depression that can happen to very young children:

  • Seasonal Affective Disorder: This is linked to daylight. During winter, when daylight goes away quicker, children can get depressed. 
  • Dysthymia: In this condition, depression is not quite strong but the problem can be quite persistent. Dysthymia can lead to a full-blown depression if not treated at the right time. 
  • Adjustment Disorder: This kind of depression sets in when a child loses a particularly favourite family member or friend. It can also happen if the child is uprooted from a particular location when the family moves homes. 
  • Bipolar Disorder: As in adults, bipolar disorders make children swing from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. Sometimes the child is happy while at other times, they are sad. This kind of depression is rare, though. 

The question now arises, how do you get help for your depressed child? The first job is to take the child to a professionally trained psychologist. Only such a professional can say for sure if your child is depressed or there is some other issue. Through individual sessions, a psychologist can take a peep into the child’s mind. Sometimes, studying the behavior of a child, or asking them to answer questionnaires, can open up the mind to the psychologist. Treatment usually is free of medication because the child is too young. 

Therapy sessions, individual and group, are the way to take your child on the path of recovery. Because there cannot be any particular cause for depression among toddlers, addressing individual cases is the only way forward.

Signs of child abuse may not be obvious in most of the cases. This is because children may feel afraid or ashamed to tell anyone about it. They might feel that no one would believe them or they might be scared of the abuser. Many times, the child even doesn’t realise that he/she’s being abused. World Health Organisation reveals that 20% of women and about 5 to 10% of men accepted being sexually abused as children. While 25-50% of people accepted of being physically abused as children.

How can you tell whether a child is been abused? Check for these warning signs:

1. Change in Behaviour

Has the child turned hostile lately? Is he or she showing aggression or hyperactivity? Does the child lack social skills and develops poor bonding with parents? If yes, then it can be a sign of child abuse.

2. Depression and Loss of Interest

Does the child withdraw from activities that once gave him/her pleasure? Does he/she refuse to meet friends? Have they begun to lose confidence in whatever they do and suffer from anxiety?

3. Reluctance

Abused children often avoid places where they are likely to confront their abuser. Did you notice similar reluctance in any child around you? Does he/she refuse to go to school, board the school bus, return home or visit a particular relative’s place? Is he/she reluctant in sharing information?

4. Trouble Sleeping

Does the child face difficulty in sleeping? Does he/she constantly wet or soil the bed? Do they have nightmares and other sleep problems that are beyond explanation? These can be signs of possible child abuse.

5. Self-Injury and Substance abuse

Bruises and burns are early signs of child abuse. Children might harm themselves (by cutting or burning) to relieve the emotional pain. They might even begin drinking at a very young age. If you have noticed unexplained wounds in your child’s body then don’t ignore it.

Child abuse can leave permanent scars on a child’s mind and if neglected, this can result in impaired mental or physical health. Children can forget the pain afflicted due to abuse and live a normal and healthy life, which is why it’s important to immediately consult a psychologist.
