COIMBATORE: A programme to develop life skills and improve the learning experience for students, teachers and parents was launched by ASHA Counselling and Training Services at the 7th Annual Meet on Transactional Analysis and Human Development, which concluded here on Sunday.

The community outreach programme, `Asha Vidya', would shift the focus from the curriculum to the learning experience and development of the student, so that learning became a joyful experience rather than a chore. .

Students, teachers and parents needed to effectively relate to benefactors and colleagues, to reduce the stress generated by education. Launching the programme, Susan George, Dean of Academic Affairs, Women's Christian College, Chennai, shared her experience of using transactional analysis to make learning enjoyable.

Elders should strive to be positive role models, she said.

Launching `Asha Seva', P. Davamani, Vice-President, Kovai Medical Center and Hospital, said that healthcare personnel should develop behavioural skills along with professional expertise. The aim was to improve the quality of medical care and social welfare services.

Asha is the maiden project of the public charitable trust, Centre for Holistic Integrated Learning and Development (CHILD). Phone: 0422-2310520.
