Sukrut announces its 7th international conference 2023


Mental health challenges faced by Adolescents in today’s world

16th – 18th February 2023

Sukrut was started in 2008 by a diverse group of professionals, with an aim of developing the potentials of an individual. The term ‘Sukrut’ is made up of two Sanskrit words “Su” which means good and “Krut” means an act. So, at Sukrut we plan activities that bring out the good in individuals and systems.

We advocate a systemic approach to diagnosing and intervening in problems. Harnessing community resources, collaborating with various other healthcare providers to develop a holistic package for each client.

Sukrut has been offering an International Conference of Psychologists every year since 2013. The 6th event in January 2018, in association with Christ University, was “Building Walls: from Neurosis to Psychosis”. The earlier five addressed “Adolescence: Scrabble of Life”, “Applications in Psychotherapy”, “Who Am I? Conflicts of Gender and Culture Constructs in Our Interwoven Identities – A Global View”, “Intimacy and Sexuality: Perspectives from Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy”, and “Workshop on Identity and Authority”.

Psychologists from Sukrut have presented papers at both national and international conferences, the ones organized by
OPUS ( and at Belgirate IV, the last one at OPUS 2018 on “Sex, Power and Money at a Crossroads in India”. At OPUS 2017, Sukrut presented two papers — “G stands for Greed: Psychoanalytic Perspectives of a Fallen Hero” and “Does Sturm und Drang unleash the Self?” The papers are an illustration of the successful experiments that Psychologists in Sukrut are doing to construct meaningful interventions in the marketplace of Indian education, industry, and society.

The conference will provide a unique opportunity to share ideas, initiatives and experiences for making this planet a better place for a healthy and prosperous living.

In continuity of its commitment the conference inspires and encourages all stakeholders to rework and rethink from a global perspective while addressing local issues and challenges.
