An emotion is a complex psychological state that unites three distinct conditions—a subjective experience, a physiological response and a behavioural or expressive response. Emotions seem to rule our daily lives. Focus and dedication on the mental health and wellbeing of Teachers is just as important as taking precautions against the virus. Keeping in mind the ongoing need to coach teachers for emotional health at the time of the pandemic, sessions for all the teaching staff of Unity College were organized by the Aseema Charitable Trust from 17th to 19th January, 2022 via a digital platform, which was facilitated by Ms. Kausar Shaikh and Ms. Sharmeen Shah.
