The Group uses the power of mindfulness to facilitate mental well-being for those experiencing frustration; tiredness, negative thinking, overthinking and restlessness or are experiencing burn out and are finding it difficult to destress even when taking a break.
The Group is about Mindfulness which is our ability to experience and respond to the real world as perceived through our 5 senses. The aim of the mindfulness practices is to deal with stressors, manage overwhelming emotions, increase motivation, bring focus and eliminate dysfunctional patterns.
We are two psychotherapists who have been practicing in the varying capacities of a mental health professional within the purview of clinical psychology. We are both undergraduates from DU and postgraduates with Mphil degrees from TISS. Our current project is motivated by the psychotherapeutic groups that we co facilitated together in our time working within hospital based psychiatric OPDs. We didn’t just find our work meaningful and impactful; rather we found that these groups were instrumental in helping us navigate the philosophies that guide our current initiative.
We believe our lives are constantly “under construction” and life is lived at its most when we truly engage with this process. We understand everyone’s life as a unique experience placed in the larger context of their surroundings. We believe that who we are is as much a part of the larger social system as it is a part of us. Anchoring our practice within these philosophies we believe in providing a therapeutic space that not only moves one in their preferred direction but also one that encourages us to relate with care and concern towards others.
Unheard Sagas is a platform intended to make Mental Health Care accessible and affordable by creating a community of support for achieving well being.
We believe everyone’s life is a unique experience placed in the larger context of their surroundings. Anchoring our practice within this philosophy we are providing group therapeutic spaces to encourage one another to relate with care and concern towards others.
We are consistently driven to work within the framework of our core values and principles. These are reflected not just in our facilitation process within group therapy but are also values we use to work with each other and as well as others. We are guided by the APA guidelines of ethics and use these to anchor our work.
Beneficence and Non-maleficence.
Our constant endeavor is to protect the rights and welfare of those with whom we work professionally. In order to achieve this we often encourage and keep each other in check to ensure that we are always working towards reducing our own biases as well as prejudices to provide an affirmative and safe space for all.
Fidelity and Responsibility.
We believe in making all our work accountable. All our groups include two facilitators, we encourage clients to provide us with feedback and we consistently work towards reducing any ethical dilemmas that may arise in our work.
Integrity and justice:
We are always in the process of creating open and honest lines of communication with those involved in our work. Furthermore, we ensure quality work by keeping ourselves updated, informed and well versed with the latest advances in the field and try to use the benefits of the same with all our clients.
Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity Our work is respectful of everyone’s right to dignity, privacy, and confidentiality.
We also keep ourselves well versed with concerns of various vulnerable and minority populations and are open and honest to learning more each step of the way. Through this we ensure that we are respectful as well as affirmative of the lived experiences of those with whom we work professionally as well personally.
They should also strive to minimize their own biases as well as be aware of issues related to diversity and the concerns of particular populations.
