A student’s behavior can affect her/his ability to learn as well as other students‘ learning environment. Students who behave disruptively by bullying other students, talking during lectures or by requiring the teacher to interrupt lessons to discipline them can have a negative effect on an entire classroom. Characteristics and behaviors associated with emotional disturbance and behavioral problems may include aggressive or anti-social behavior; inattentiveness; distractibility and impulsiveness; impaired social interactions; a general inability to cope with the routine of daily tasks.
Academic, emotional and behavioral problems can affect a student’s energy level, concentration, dependability, mental ability, and optimism, hindering performance. Research suggests that depression is associated with lower grade point averages and that co-occurring depression and anxiety can increase this association. Proper counseling and psychotherapy services are used to manage academic, emotional and behavioral problems.
For this purpose, Seminar On Awareness and Management of Academic, Emotional & Behavior Problems among University Studentswas conducted on Thursday, 24-10-2019. A huge number of students participated and they learn how they can identify when someone is suffering from Academic, Emotional & Behavior Problems. If they are unable to manage by themselves, they should approach the counselor. Our respected HOC also discussed the counseling services for students in SZABIST Islamabad Campus.
