Mrs. Lathika introduced the concept of Decision making - the process of making choices by identifying a decision, gathering information, and assessing alternative resolutions. She stressed on using a step-by-step decision-making process that can help make more deliberate, thoughtful decisions by organizing relevant information and defining alternatives. It is important to be good decision-makers involving others when appropriate and use knowledge, data and opinions to shape the final decisions. It was also mentioned that one should be confident in their decisions and rarely hesitate after reaching conclusions. The Resource person shared an instance where a decision was made out of force and the client couldn’t cope with it and finally had to make a decision for better living. She gave clarity on types of decisions and the importance of thinking divergently for coming up with a wise decision. She also emphasized on taking a stand to make decisions, not allowing anybody else to make choices for them. The session also focused on rational decisions for better living conditions. Several examples were given to brief about rational decisions. Students were made aware about situations where they can go wrong and the decisions that can be rectified. Mrs. Lathika concluded by highlighting the importance of decision making from daily activities to major situations in life.
