Workshop Report Card in Detail
Day 1 began with introduction of participants. After having warmup on bum game, we started with acceptance and importance of it for a PWS. We learnt bouncing techniques before lunch. We had good round of practice. In the afternoon we learnt prolongation and had very good rounds of practice. Only after we all were comfortable on these two techniques we went to garden to practice voluntary stammering. We stood on a wall and accepted our stammering in public. Some people were watching from far. After this round we talked to these people and explained what we were doing.We had very good participation from public also on this front. At the day 1 end, we had fast round of questions to put a person in a block, but all of us shown smartness and did not had any obvious blocks. We ended day 1 on having dinner by practicing pausing technique.
Day 2, we started with playing the videos of Dr Sachin on bouncing and prolongation. Post this all of us learnt the 3 block correction techniques. In afternoon we went to railway station, where we met one senior PWS who had been to Pune SHG, where he agreed to come to SHG meeting regularly. In station till the train arrives we talked to many people and explained about the stammering. During our train journey we had great time with people as many us were able to connect and make them understand about stammering. Many people took our phone numbers. We also shared our site stammer.in in each meeting. While returning again we had good time to talk to public on station and then in train as well. VOLUNTARY STAMMERING IN TRAIN IS LIKED BY ALL OF US, AS IT HAS HELPED US TO OPEN TO PUBLIC AND ACCEPT STAMMERING.
After returning to workshop hall, we practiced block correction techniques, again.
Cost of the workshop: There was no fees charged to attend the workshop. We spent Rs.300 each on lunch and dinner during the workshop.
