Training & Research

a

The 69 facilities of KRIPA, spread over 12 states in India are manned by peers and professionals in the field of CD and HIV-AIDS care. The activities conducted at these facilities are personnel intensive, and hence adequacy of numbers is essential for smooth functioning. The rapid changes in available information and techniques in care, require periodic upgrading of staff abilities. The limits of the problems seen in CD / HIV-AIDS are not yet fully defined, and hence accurate and meticulous documentation is the need at all the centers.
Kripa Institute of Training, established in August 1999, and located at Kripa Foundation Vasai (W), has a capacity to cater 20-30 students at any given time. It conducts periodic programmes that provide exposure and substantially enhances the information base and technical ability in both therapeutic concepts as well as documentation. These training modules are structured to cater to the specific needs of people working in the field, as well as those referred by other organizations of training and development, such as industry, social groups and educational institutions. Training is also made available to paramedical, social groups, experiential counselor and students, and to graduates and postgraduates working in the field.

Programmes are conducted by Kripa staff and are often facilitated by national and internationally distinguished personalities and resource people. The modalities of training include audio-visual, electronic and text material with additional focus on interactive learning.
Kripa institute of training conducts programmes of different durations, namely, one week, one month, three month & one year diploma courses, on substance abuse and HIV/AIDS counseling. It offers internship and training to students from various organisations like National Institute of Social Defense, Medical Colleges, NGOs working in the field of Substance Abuse & HIV/AIDS & Graduate and Post graduate students of SNDT & Mumbai University.
