Diploma & Certificate

CSRD-ISWR has been conducting two short-term courses leading up to certificates and diplomas since 2010. These courses are conducted full time for shorter duration or part time (evening) for longer duration. Under this programme the following programmes are offered:

Diploma in Disaster Management (Recognised by University of Pune).

Disaster Management is emerging globally as a full-fledged academic discipline. Since disaster response has primarily been a practitioner’s domain, its boundaries have been permeable. People from diverse backgrounds including relief worker, engineers, social scientists or medical professional have worked in disaster management. This has facilitated the growth of disaster management as substantive field. However, as a field of practice, it demands specialization to meet with the dynamic challenges posed by disasters. The Diploma in Disaster Management, offered by the Institute aims at enhancing knowledge, capacities and skills, and perspective on disasters. While enabling an understanding of disasters form the vantage point of science and technology in prediction, mitigation and response, the program will also foster a critical and reflective appreciation of current debates in disaster management within the framework of social and environmental justice, state and civil society dynamics, development conflict and displacement and globalization.

Besides social workers, other professionals providing counselling services include the psychiatrists, psychologists, psychoanalysts, nursing personnel, religious leaders, teachers and other volunteers. Counseling is one of the major tasks of social workers engaged in helping people. Through direct counselling or referral to other services, social workers help people solve a range of personal problems. Counselling and social work are closely connected. Social workers help people by counselling them to cope with issues in their everyday lives, deal with their relationships, and solve personal and family problems. Some social workers provide counselling to clients who face a disability or a life-threatening disease or a social problem, such as unemployment, cancer, HIV/AIDS or substance abuse. Social Workers also counsel families that have serious domestic conflicts, sometimes involving child or spousal abuse. many social workers specialize in serving a particular population or working in a specific setting. They get many opportunities for engaging in their field or practice. Considering the scope and relevance of counseling in social work profession CSRD-ISWR is offering the certificate course in counseling.
