Training Module 8 – ”Paramarsh” ”Saamajik evam vyavhaar parivartan sanchaar” ”Swasthya karyakarta prasikshan module shrankhla”

The module deals with effective counselling skills required by health workers while working with adolescent girls and their families. The module discusses menstruation and physical and psychological changes experienced by adolescent girls. It is also explained that discussion on menstruation is often considered a taboo in families and communities. In such a situation the role of health worker becomes critical in helping the adolescent girls. The health workers while counselling the adolescent girls must keep in mind that: • Menstruation is a sensitive subject and girls may not open up on their own and their families may not approve of discussions on menstruation. Therefore, the health workers should create awareness among families and communities on the subject before discussing it with girls. • To understand adolescent girls and their problems, health workers should be sympathetic to them • While discussing adolescent views, problems and reactions on the subject the health workers should remain unbiased • Health workers should be sensitive to adolescent girls and their views • They should maintain confidentiality • They should create a supportive environment for discussion, actively listen to adolescents and encourage them to ask questions and clarify doubts Suggested Audience: Health workers

Effective communication is an important part of behaviour change communication. It helps in winning people’s trust and is useful in discussing even personal and sensitive issues. Similarly active listening also helps in behaviour change. Active listening helps in knowing a person and gathering vital information about him/her and his/her family and community. It further facilitates identification and understanding of a person’s needs, problems and potential challenges to behaviour change. While listening to the person, it is also important to ask questions to gather relevant information about him/her. Asking questions is also an art. A health worker should use open ended questions while communicating with a person. Additionally, questions should be worded in simple language. The health worker should avoid asking many questions at a time and the person must be given sufficient time to answer the questions. Suggested Audience: Health workers
