He briefed students about therapeutic approaches, various intelligence tests and introduced the concept of learning disabilities (LD). Later the students visited ‘Urja Counselling Clinic’ run by Mrs. Bhavna Raja. She discussed various career opportunities and advised students to take up internship and focus on the smaller details like the importance of ambience and comfort to establish a fruitful rapport with the clients.
