Dr Bijal Oza, Assistant Professor, Director of Counseling and Coaching Center at SP Jain School of Global Management, writes an article in Shiksha, discussing the importance of building resilience among students in the post-pandemic era, emphasising the challenges they faced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In the article, she highlights the need for society to support students in developing resilience to thrive in a fast-paced, AI-driven world.
“With the increasing focus on mental and emotional stability, it becomes important that we educate the young with the skills they require to be resilient and agile. Creating a safe environment where students can feel comfortable and can express themselves freely, be it at home, or at school or college, is the first step. Empowering students to develop “trust circles” can be helpful in encouraging them to share uncomfortable feelings. The secret to building resilience lies in emotional intelligence; a concept widely known, yet not taken seriously across all domains.” writes Dr Oza.
She further adds, “It is rightly said that as the world evolves, the complexities multiply, and therefore, human begins need to resort to their instinctual abilities of using their emotions as a powerful tool to navigate through these complexities. While the young generation may find it overwhelming to think about the future, the secret lies in focusing on their present moment, since the answer lies in the now.”
