Abstract: Indian Institute of Science at Bangalore is known for its
Quality of Research and Academic Pursuits worldwide. The students go
through vigorous selection process before they enter this temple of
Excellence. After joining over a period of time, the students experience
some kind of pressure and stress for varied reasons as Academic Pressure,
poor intra and inter-personal relations with friends or faculties; peer
pressure; High achievement motivation, and messed up personal
relationships or friendships. Most of these issues arise out of lack of
awareness poor understanding and or little knowledge on handling or
dealing with them. Inability to cope with distress situations generates
negative emotions in the individuals, pushing them to depressive state.
These situations sometimes become very delicate and sensitive to deal with
for both the students as well as the faculties who have to guide them.
With this background the interactive session on” Research Journey at IISc”
is aimed at giving an understanding of the issues that are most commonly
faced by the students. It is hoped that this session will create an
awareness on Understanding “SELF & ENVIRONMENT”, which is very important
for a progressive and productive career as well as personal life.
The session will be made interesting with a very famous theory of
Psychology, “ Johario’s Window” to understand Self ( I am OK, You are OK)
and through a psychological and Management Principle “Transactional
analysis” to understand the environment and the people around to
experience a“ Win-Win” situation for achieving the end result for which
one joins the institute.
