Profile

Did my masters in clinical psychology from Delhi University and then PhD in attachment theory from USA. Then did a course for world leaders working in mental health from Harvard University. Worked in different areas. First with a rehabilitation center for mentally ill young people for fourteen years. Work involved restoring them to normal life and getting them back to reality. It was followed by work in Delhi’s Tihar jail with violent offenders and doing grief work with prisoners that helped them to become calm and less violent. I worked with terrorists, sexual offenders and different issues that arose for the prisoners from time to time. It could be suicide, death sentence, or harsh sentence passed on to anyone. Worked with survivors and victims of heinous crimes and helped them to testify in courts, specially survivors of sexual assault. I also testified as a psychologist on a large number of issues from malingering to assault. It was followed by work with human rights defenders across Asia who were survivors of torture and atrocities and presenting their cases for justice. It involved providing them with psychological support.
