JPIP is one of the few institutes in India devoted to applied research in Psychology. Savitribai Phule Pune University recognizes the institute as Research and Ph. D. centre since 1980. As an extension and application of research, academic activities are undertaken.In the post-independence period, our country faced many challenges related to education. After globalization, problems in the educational field took a new turn. As an attempt to intervene in this, with vast research experience in the areas of psychology and education, JPIP initially started the Post Graduate Diploma in School Psychology in 1993. This is one of the rarest courses in School Psychology. It not only focuses the remedial or curative work with students but aims all-round development and well-being of students. As a part of this, life skills development, thinking skills development, self-study skills development is also focused upon. The course is a one-year full-time diploma that is recognized by Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU). It aims at developing trained personnel in the field of School Psychology. Over 400 students have completed this practically orientated, immensely useful course. They are contributing to the area in the capacity of Principals, Counselors, School Psychologists and Consultants.

The CAPEP Programmes (modules and activities) is entirely focused on children that gave a glimpse of their physical, intellectual and psychological development. It also introduced various developmental and psychological obstacles children may face. Assignments, Training sessions and activities were case study and experiential learning oriented. Faculty and course coordinator are knowledgeable and very supportive. I had enrolled in this course to learn about the essentials of growth and development of children during their important year. This course will definitely aid me to understand the changes in children’s inner world as my son steps in to adolescents (so called “Teenage”). Moreover, this introductory course has generated enthusiasm in me to learn more about child psychology. This course is valuable for both parents and professionals who are in day-to-day contact with children. The information could be used to identify and issues in children’s growth years.
