18TH & 19TH OCTOBER 2018
JEEVAN DARSHAN VADODARA
GJYM organised two days workshop from 18th October, 9.00 am to 19th October, 3.00 pm for the youth animators to both - laity and religious - at Jeevan Darshan, Vadodara. Fr. Brian Periera SJ, (Karnataka) was the resource person. The topics we dealt upon are: Rapid increase in the Suicide rate among the youth, Anger, violence, rage, drug addiction, grief and loss, sibling rivalry and the use of genogram to understand the youth and their families.
The topics being so vast and requiring longer duration of participation and reading into it but all of them affecting the situation of the families in various ways, it was really a tedious task to highlight which topic was of greater importance. And yet, at the end of the day, we do feel justice is done to the topic. Thanks to Fr. Brian Pereira for being with us and leading us in in-depth reflection of the current status of youth today. A very big thank you to the 26 youth animators who participated in this workshop. Thanks to Pastoral centre JD for their fraternal care.
