The convention was inaugurated by Justice Dr. Mrs. Shalini S. Phansalkar Joshi, Judge, Bombay High Court, Mrs. Shailaja Sawant, Principal Judge, Family Court, Pune, Mr. Sudam Gayke, Vice-President, Association Of Marriage Counselors, Family Courts, Maharashtra State, Prof. Dr. Mukund Sarda New Law College, Pune Dean And Principal . The event saw participation from over 100 counselors.

Dr. Mrs. Shalini S. Phansalkar Joshi stated that “Family is an integral system of society. Health of family is important aspect of society. If the spouses stay happy the family becomes happy. Role of Counselors is like the bridge between the courts and litigants. Matrimonial disputes are not just legal dispute but it consists of the emotions and moral issues related to the families. Counselors therefore have to be attached and also should able to detach themselves at times while dealing with matrimonial issues. Counselors should build their own scientific support system mechanism, emotional draining is also important for counselors; the counselors must be patient and have good listening skills. They should not give their own perceptions, assumptions and notions while counseling. They should be free from biased opinion or prejudice.”

Dr. Mukund Sarda elaborated,” Counseling is a complex and demanding job. Counselors should use scientific and innovative methods in there counseling to resolve the disputes. Matrimonial disputes will remain as the two persons having different opinion are bound to live together. The understanding is only the way to resolve disputes between spouses. Nowadays social media is also playing an important role in communications but it is also a culprit which is a cause of matrimonial disputes. Due to over communications the understanding levels within the family is going down. The children are prepared for studies and interviews but they are not given parenting counseling. The parenting counseling is the emerging area which needs to be addressed. The respect for the women should be inculcated during the upbringing of the children.”

    parts’ histories. But the TRUTH is that in the modern India, the woman has
    always been a second grade citizen, no matter what its esteemed leaders have
    said or done. Dr. Mukund did a great job by his motivational discussion with
