Abstract

UNICEF defined life skills as “a behaviour or behaviour development approach designed to address a balance of three areas: knowledge, attitude and skills”. Life skills include psychological competencies and interpersonal skill that help adolescence to make decisions, solve problems, think critically, communicate effectively, build healthy relationships, empathize with others, and cope with managing their lives in a healthy and productive manner. Life Skill Education helps the student to enter into a healthy relationship with the society and also helps in various skills like choosing friends, carrier developing, leadership, responsibility, making relationships, following discipline, effective communication, interpersonal skill, understanding one’s needs, solving problems etc. Adolescence, the transition between childhood and adult life, is one of the most dynamic stages of human development which go with physical, mental and emotional changes. Hence, the investigator finds it an immense and immediate necessity to empower high school children studying at Government and private schools in Imphal City, Manipur, India with Life Skill Education as a part of her Ph. D research work.
