Peer Education

 

Peer Education System (PES) :             

                                 Open Elective Course

 

Acknowledging the impact Peer Educators can have on campus as ambassadors of positive thinking and healthy behaviours, CCHS formulated an open elective course with 2 credit points for training students to serve as ‘Peer Educators’. 

The peer to peer network acts as the first line of support for students. Peer Educators create positive attitudes and permeate a strong and healthy value-base among the youth that they come in contact with.
From 2020-21 academic year, the PES course is offered in all campuses of CHRIST (Deemed to be University). 

Course details
The course is open for II year undergraduate class of all Schools. The course consists of 35 hours of sessions to discuss various topics. This course is designed to be experiential hence there will be no theory classes, topics will be explained based on the experiences of the facilitators and participants.
Topics covered are on life skills such as Self Awareness, Self Esteem, Communication, Assertiveness, Resilience, Nurturing Relationships, Boundaries, Sexuality Education, Orientation, Body Image, Personal Safety, and Substance Abuse.

Advanced Peer Education
The advanced Peer Education Program is offered to students who have successfully completed the foundation peer education programme. 
 

Formal Sessions
As an added influencing step, the Peer Educators create an open platform for students to share their opinions and experiences with regard to a variety of issues, which can thereby influence their health and well-being. This is achieved through 3 Psycho-education Sessions which are conducted in a formal classroom setting. Peer Educators with guidance from counsellors deliver interactive sessions that are relevant and impactful.
 

Valedictory Ceremony 
Students who successfully complete the course are awarded Letters of Appreciation in a ceremony which is presided by the Director, CCHS, Dr Fr Jose CC. The Peer Treasure Magazine is also released on the occasion.
