It was a great opportunity to attend SCR workshop for all of us. Initially, I was not ready to attend on reading the notice via email, I thought I won’t be able to complete the 15 SCR correction task as dissertation pressure is on and also I had no interest but 10 days prior workshop, I had prepared my mind that I should also attend this workshop because this is the only platform where we get opportunities to learn and then I started searching SCRs in which I have filled many of the tools, got signed only 3 SCRs 7 days prior to the workshop then I became anxious and started anticipating how I will get SCRs signed by supervisors? But my friends motivated and I started working hard on the inputs and then I got sign on the list within 2-3 days and submitted the list to the SCR supervisors (Dr. Nikunj Jani and Dr. Sachin Junagade). With the feeling state of WON THE VICTORY.
SCR workshop was from 17th April to 19th April. We got the case and whole schedule of all 3 days on the previous night of workshop at 10:30pm. I was just going to sleep, after receiving mail immediately went to library and did the working of directive which was given. At that time didn’t refer any book to read, directly started doing working.
On the 1st day of the workshop, all students were there in auditorium and everyone was looking energetic, enthusiastic and this energy and enthusiasm was till 3rd day. Workshop started with prayer, which also added positive energy within me. Dr. Sunil Bhalinge sir appreciated us for showing interest in workshop and also motivated us for the SCR test. All students were divided into 3 groups with one MO and 2 supervisors to each group. Daily tasks were given to each group which was really a dynamic for me because in small group discussion every group member was allowed to share his / her understanding regarding the task which was given, also learnt how to distribute work in a group, for e.g., if 3 tasks were given at a time to a single group then we can distribute that work in sub-groups so that work can be completed in given time. We used to prepare PPT or word file for every task and every group got chance to present their understanding in large group. Mine was Group A and Dr. Nikunj Jani and Dr. Shama Rao were our supervisors and Dr. Rajesh Yadav was our MO. Supervisors used to guide us where group was stuck and their inputs were very valuable and logical. In large group discussion also inputs given by all supervisors, Dr. Sunil Bhalinge sir, Dr. Bhavik Parekh, Dr. Gayatri Patel, Dr. Nikunj Jani, Dr. Shama Rao, Dr. Sachin Junagade, Dr. Devangini Broker, Dr. Vivek Kadam, were really helpful and guided us very well.
On the 2nd day, Dr. Anand Kapse Sir’s presence was an additional gift to us as first he read the case then saw the presentation and he gave critical inputs on Conceptual Image (CI), Essential Evolutionary Totality (EET) and remedy differentiation.
On 3rd day Dr. Manoj Patel Sir’s and Dr. Bipin Jain Sir’s presence was the icing on the cake. Dr. Patel Sir gave inputs on Therapeutic Problem Definition – Therapeutic Problem Resolution (TPD-TPR) and Dr. Bipin Jain sir gave inputs on follow-up criteria.
Tools taken were on 1st day – PD-PR-IP, SFFT, LST; on 2nd day- MSR, PSPD, EHT, CI, EET, APPROACH, REMEDY DIFFERENTIATION; on 3rd day- PLANNING AND PROGRAMMING, TPD-TPR and FOLLOW-UP CRITERIA AND RREF.
Inputs given by all faculties that I have engraved in me includes:
- During PD PR IP when we understand problem correlation we should form the objectives of the interview plan. That helps in understanding how to go about the case.
- PSPD was a complete new learning for me as being from Paediatric department had never done any PSPD of any case. Learnt about the Freud theory – oral fixation, anal fixation. Defences used and correlation with the breakdown. As it was first time Detailed learning will require repeated practice.
- Understanding anxiety, fastidious a Sycotic by understanding the entire case. One should not jump on miasm without understanding the details. Learnt about fastidious Sycosis as we had little data of not going to toilet for two days if toilet is uncleaned and no other data. Now considering whole as Sycotic to think why person holds for 2 days. So fixity of fastidiousness with few symptoms was learning.
- Learnt the time dimension of EET and understood if one wants to mention ID EGO SUPEREGO then we can add in functional attribute which we use as defense mechanism and not in the area of mind.
- Planning and programming by Dr. Bhalinge Sir was the point where I felt this is the easiest tool but most complex as it requires higher cognition. When Bhalinge Sir explained the state of body as disturbed physical attribute understood we are not using out higher cognition and all of us need to polish it. Nothing is tough. If it goes wrong then RREF is at fault.
- Remedy differentiation by Dr. Bhavik Sir was learnt by me in detail. Going from known to unknown. Understanding core of the remedy and comparing with close coming remedies.
- Basic reading is necessary.
INSIGHT development was the thing that I needed the most which helped in removing myself fixity of not being a part of the workshop and giving less importance to tools like PSPD, P and P, RREF.
The best teachers are those who show you where to look, but don’t tell you what to see. I have learnt where to look, practice will help me in reflecting back to you what I see!
Thank you to all my faculty members for giving this opportunity and a special thanks to Dr. Devangini Broker for taking this case for session and sharing her learning through this case which indirectly gave insight to all of us!
