As an academic discipline, Psychology has bright prospects in the contemporary world which is characterized by competition for existence. The need for psychological help in various walks of life, from qualified and professionally trained psychologists and counselors is increasing like never before. Though Psychology emerged as a unique scientific discipline more than a Century ago the progressive application its principles are not yet fully materialized in all sections of the society. However, without the encouragement and recognition of its value psychology would not gain the status it enjoys in other regions today.\ Now psychology has been recognized as crucial for addressing the myriad challenges facing humanity.

Aptitude Testing: Every individual is gifted with certain innate potentials, which, if nourished, can help the person actualize his/her self and thus achieve professional success and personal satisfaction. We, at MAANAS, use certain standardized aptitude test batteries to test the student in different areas to know where his/her potential lies. These tests give us valuable information about what field of study could be chosen so that the student enjoys the learning process. It is a testing programme to identify and guide the child's innate potential to choose a course, a way to identify the gifts that you have!

Career Guidance: Most people are not aware of the diverse fields that are available in terms of graduate and post graduate or diploma courses, as well as in terms of job or career opportunities. Especially important is the need to know oneself as a person and then to find out what kind of job suits one best. We couple aptitude tests with personality tests and prepare a profile of the person considering both. After a week of aptitude testing, we call the parents and students together for career guidance sessions, where we suggest educational and vocational options, depending upon the aptitude test results.

Personal Counseling: We will organize counselors at the centre who can give personalized counseling sessions for a variety of problems, such as anxiety, depression, interpersonal difficulties etc
