Think before you 'like' a photo on Facebook

Social media is steadily playing a major role in break-ups because it does not allow privacy.

AN ELF CALLED SELFIE

Are we so enchanted by our own reflection than reality itself that we are ushering in our catastrophe? Or is this self-preaching a way to rebuild identities in a world of anodyne flatness, asks Rinku Ghosh...

Psychologist Rippan Sippy attributes the renewed interest in photography to this changed mindset. “Today, a photo is more about showing off and influencing others than seeking remembrance. Rather than obsession, I would describe the selfie revolution as more of social intimidation and high self-branding. People can take a snap without seeking help from others whenever they feel the moment is opportune and they are looking good. The pleasure of your inner self is more important than locating yourself in the context of a social occasion. This is because social approval of selfies ultimately leads to inner pleasure.”...

Experts warn of the ill effects of the blame game as the demand for marriage counsellors reaches an all-time high. Nona Walia finds out more...

Says clinical psychologist and special educator Dr Ripan Sippy, "Technology and the liberalisation of social mores have changed the pattern of relationships. Couples now meet on the internet, and come to us for pre-marital counselling. People even Skype or chat with therapists online. Issues range from extra-marital affairs, ego issues to differences on how to bring up a child. Couples have far more access to professional help, but life doesn't always have a one-word answer to problems. There is no quick fix to emotional issues.People need to understand that."...

According to psychologist Dr. Rippan Sippy, who runs a clinic in Rajender Nagar in Delhi, in the past couple of months, many aspirants have come in reporting cases of emotional breakdown and anxiety. “Preparing for civil services affects the students physically, emotionally, socially and psychologically as they are disconnected from the outside world… many of them turn to heavy drinking and smoking,” said Dr. Sippy. “In the last one month, I have seen nearly 20 cases of anxiety and depression among these aspirants who come from the age group of 22-28 years.”..

Let your child earn their pocket money

Parents can shape their children to be better savers – by encouraging them to earn their pocket money. For those of you, who motivates your child to take up part time job, is in reality enabling them to understand the real value of money.

“Children should earn their pocket money. Then they realize the value and hence spend sensibly,” said Dr. Ripan Sippy, Clinical Psychologist and Special Educator. While this practice is common in the West, in India the concept is yet to gain popularity – due to the presence of social stigma. Working before the completion of studies is not encouraged and those opting for earning their pocket money are looked with suspicion...... Read More

According to a report by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB), problems within the nuptial knot are risking lives of many Indian men and women.

Reasoning westernisation as one of the major reasons for aggressive diversion in Indian couples and thus resulting into suicidal tendencies, Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “Many couples enter into marriage with high expectations and when they don’t happen it leads to clashes and breakdown.”......

However, Ripan Sippy, a child psychologist in Delhi, said that using tablets and PCs is proving to have several advantages as educational tools. The expert says that these are far more "interactive and innovative" mediums than textbooks, which stimulate several senses like sight, hearing and touch. "Ultimately, it is the way to the future," he said. "The child doesn't get bored. There is better concentration and retention." ...... Read More



Rising concern over sexual crime against children in India!

Even as Indians debate over a University of Chicago student’s account of how unsafe India is for women, the controversy surrounding self-styled spiritual guru Asaram Bapu’s alleged involvement in the rape of a 16-year-old minor girl at his Jodhpur Ashram will only strengthen her narrative. In April, Delhi still recovering from the Nirbhaya gang-rape case experienced the rape of a five-year-old girl kept as hostage by her neighbour at his flat for three days.

Explaining the psychological aspects of child sex abuse, Dr Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “From my clinical experience I have observed that individuals, who somehow fail to show their power and sexual ability in their peer group, choose children to prove their aggression.”.....

Suicide rate among employed higher than jobless: NCRB report

It is often believed that economic instability and unemployment may push men and women towards committing suicide. The general perception, however, seems to be wrong. As per the latest National Crime Records Bureau-2012 (NCRB) report, jobless men and women are less likely to commit suicide than their salaried and self-employed counterparts.

Reasoning excessive pressure and competition in the job market for increasing number of suicides amongst employed people, Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “Office politics, hectic lifestyle, professional competitions and increasing standard of living are giving rise to social isolation amongst employed people in India. When you lack social bonds and leisure your mental imbalance forces you to kill yourself and end all the complications from your life. “..... Read More



More children are now in conflict with law!

Posing a threat to the nation’s ethos and socialization, criminal activities involving children are steadily rising in India. According to the latest edition of “Crime in India-2012” released by National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) on June 12, 2013, crimes involving children have increased from 1.9 per cent in 2010 to 2.3 per cent in 2012.

Talking about the increasing level of violent behavior amongst teenagers, Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “The rebellion tendencies amongst the teenagers are so high in the recent times that I nearly have to handle four cases in a day where a teenager is involved in various instances of conduct disorders.”.....

Shifting to isolation

Govind used to plough his land in Bhind, Madhya Pradesh an year ago when he decided to leave farming as he could barely make ends meet. He migrated to Delhi and now pulls a rickshaw. It fetches him just enough to fill his stomach twice a day as he has to send a major portion of his earnings to his family back home.

Such loneliness and isolation could give birth to health problems like depression, hypertension and schizophrenia, says Dr. Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist. He says that nearly seven per cent of the migrants who come for treatment, including labourers and students, suffer from schizophrenia...... Read More



Rape offenders weak, frustrated, say psychiatrists

New Delhi, April 20 (IANS) As the nation is gripped with anger following the rape of a five-year-old girl here, psychiatrists believe the offenders of such crimes are usually weak and who harbour anger against the society that usually translates into sexual violence.

Echoing this, clinical psychologist and special educator Sippy Ripan said the culprits are products of the country's socio-economic mismatch and dis-uniformity."Frustration among individuals belonging to socio-economical backward sections, generally translates into sexual violence. There is a strong feeling of control in rape for the offender. Thus they pick up on a soft target where they can exert their domination," said Ripan......

Away from arc lights into the embrace of death!

Bollywood actor Jiah Khan’s sudden end has reinforced the growing trend among women celebrities to commit suicide due to reputation issues rather than either loss of money or failing health.

“Young female celebrities are more vulnerable to suicidal attempts because they have a limited shelf life unlike their male counterparts. The pressure of proving their professional competency is higher, “said Ripan Sippy, clinical psychologist from Delhi. ..... Read More



Why New Gen India is Going Childfree…

Samrat and Debasree Roy are “happily” married for almost five years and both well established in their respective employed life, but are going childless, better to say childfree, thanks to multiple challenges thrown out by the fast urban life in the national capital region.

“The scenario is definitely playing a role towards population control. The young and working couples, leading fast and competitive life in metro cities, are unknowingly helping the cause. But it is not a desirable situation where people are curbing their paternal or maternal instinct. In long term, this can hamper the supply of workforce as is the case in Japan or many European countries. Career ambition is a big factor today as both spouses, especially the women, try to curve out good professional career and as a result they keep delaying child birth,” says Delhi-based psychologist and special educator Ripan Sippy.....

Officials claim steps to make cities safer have been taken, recent incidents prove otherwise

The gang rape of 51-year old Danish woman in the capital has brought back focus on the megacities being the hub of crime against women. This puts to shame official claims in regard to efforts having been made to make these cities safer for women.

Explaining the psychological perspective, Dr Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “From my clinical experience I have observed that individuals, who somehow fail to show their power and sexual ability in their peer group, choose either elderly women or children to prove their aggression.”.....

Suicide a curse of the educated in India

It is often believed that education is the key to happiness and prosperity in everyone’s life. The general perception, however, seems to be wrong. As per the latest National Crime Records Bureau-2012 (NCRB) report, educated men and women are less likely to commit suicide than their non-educated counterparts.

Reasoning excessive pressure and lack of job opportunities for increasing number of suicides amongst educated people, Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “After completion of education when one fails to get a decent job they slip into deep depression and isolation. This is the time when their mental imbalance forces them to kill themselves.” Read More



Suicide rate among employed higher than jobless: NCRB report

As per the latest National Crime Records Bureau-2012 (NCRB) report, jobless men and women are less likely to commit suicide than their salaried and self-employed counterparts.

While 14 per cent self employed people within the 30-44 years of age group committed suicide in 2012, five per cent people in service killed themselves in 2012. Reasoning excessive pressure and competition in the job market for increasing number of suicides amongst employed people, Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “Office politics, hectic lifestyle, professional competitions and increasing standard of living are giving rise to social isolation amongst employed people in India. When you lack social bonds and leisure your mental imbalance forces you to kill yourself and end all the complications from your life.” Read More



Dissatisfaction with Body Image

With reputations being made and shattered on the basis of how one looks, Radhika Bhatnagar finds that the pressure of being picture perfect at all times is driving teenagers and young adults to the point of no return. And though some steps are bringing in change, they might just be too little, too late

"On an average, per month I see at least 5 cases of body image disorders,” states Delhi-based child psychologist Ripan Sippy. “And a majority of them are boys,” he adds. “Most of these teenagers want to be like the models/actors they see in films and on television. When their efforts prove futile, disappointment creeps in leading to inferiority complexes and eventually, depression.” In fact, emphasises Sippy, their pursuit for perfection often leads to what is medically termed as Body Dysmorphic Disorder, wherein there is excessive concern about and preoccupation with a perceived defect of a physical feature. “It may be as ridiculous as a disproportionate eyebrow, size of the eyes, ears, foreheads, etc. Something ordinarily unnoticed is magnified for them,” he continues. While counselling is often prescribed to help change the thought process and help gain back some confidence, to eliminate the problem from its roots, a mass change in popular perceptions seems to be in order.

16 to 18 to 16: Time to settle the debate once and for all!

As the debate over lowering the male juvenile age gets hotter post Parliamentary panel’s recommendation to reduce it to 16 from current level of 18, India runs the risk of not being in sync with global benchmarks, especially the prescribed age limit under the UN Convention.

However, it is not that there no takers for the age lowering proposition. Ripan Sippy, clinical psychologist from Delhi said, “Every child above 14 years of age develops the maturity level and decision making capacity. The rebellion tendencies amongst the teenagers are so high in the recent times that I nearly have to handle four cases in a day where a teenager is involved in various instances of conduct disorders.” Read More



Kidney Diseases: Y-Gen is on the hit list!

Top doctors in the capital apprehend that the youth in the country are increasingly becoming vulnerable to kidney failure given their liking for a sedentary lifestyle and addiction to smoking and liquor.

The early onset of kidney disorders is taking its toll on the mental well being of youth in India. Reiterating the view, Dr. Ripan Sippy, clinical psychologist, Delhi, says, “Most of the youth suffering from diabetes and other life style disorders deal with weight issues which makes them feel insecure among the peer groups. When you are bound to keep a check on your eating habits, it hits the confidence level which ultimately gives rise to many psychological disorders.” Read More



For urban India, family matters!

Are joint families back in vogue in urban India? That’s what at least the Census 2011 report “House listing and housing report” seems to suggest. In rural areas, in contrast, there is a seeming decline in dwellings with three married couples.

Ripan Sippy, a clinical psychologist from Delhi thinks that more and more working couples are falling back on traditional family structures to prevent alienation of their kids. “Joint family system is getting popular amongst working couples in cities because it helps them avail better socialization and security for their children when they are out for work,” he stresses.

How healthy is your relationship?

Ever had a moment when you looked at that supposedly great guy/ girl in your life and wondered: “What the hell am I doing with this person?”

“Compromise is about willingly doing something for your partner’s sake after which you feel good and happy. However, if you do something only because your partner is dominating, then you feel forced into something you do not like and that disturbs the relationship to a large extent,” cautions Dr. Ripan Sippy, Clinical Psychologist at Delhi’s West Side Clinic.

Swapping, grouping parties are latest fad in Delhi

Couple swapping is the new fad in Delhi's party circuit, sometimes preceded by "groping parties" to familiarise unsure entrants about the "experience" that will follow. The city has its share of "clubs" — a group of people — that organise swinger parties where couples swap partners with complete strangers for a night.

However, Dr Ripan Sippy, a Delhi-based psychologist asserted, "Couples who go for swapping generally lack an emotional connect with their partner and have trust issues in the relationship. In the long run, these people get a feeling of chronic emptiness, which may get them addicted to alcohol or drugs. They may also fall victim to depression. As for couples who are parents, it can be disastrous for their children." Read More

Harmful Social Media Disclosure

Shweta Singh (name changed) rushes out of the chemistry laboratory and heads to the nearest coffee shop with her iPad. Classes over, it's time for Facebook therapy, a few minutes to pour her heart out to the world-anonymously, of course. No names, no pictures. Just confessions and secrets she trusts only her iPad screen and the social media with. "I smoked up today", "I shared my bed with a girl and I think I have feelings for her" read her posts #504 and #506

Across campuses, Young India is baring its soul on Facebook pages, posting hidden emotions and secrets that cannot be shared with families or friends. From venting suppressed emotions to posting the latest campus gossip and even grieving the loss of a loved one, social media is GenNext's pal, therapist and a counsellor all rolled into one. Cheated in the mathematics exam? Have a crush on your senior but too shy to ask him out? Confession sites are the best way to let the world know what you're thinking without having to admit to it openly. Be it heartbreaks, pranks on professors or canteen woes, the deepest and darkest secrets are tumbling out on sites, blogs and pages. "Confessing online can be very real for some people. The Internet affords them a judgment-free medium as well as individual attention. In real life, someone might not hear what you are saying but on the Internet your message is immortalised forever," explains Dr Ripan Sippy, a Delhi-based clinical psychologist. Read More



Unrealistic Cut-offs in College Admission

The Union Human Resource Development Minister, Kapil Sibal, calls the new cut-offs ‘irrational'. At 100 per cent, Sri Ram College of Commerce is literally setting an impossible standard for its applicants, and the other colleges in Delhi University are not far behind. Almost every college in D.U. is playing incredibly hard to get, with cut-offs hiked by anything between eight and 15 per cent. Hindu College has set a near-perfect score as its B.Com. (H) cut-off too, setting it 99 per cent for non-commerce students.

“This kind of unrealistic benchmark only forces the students to set unrealistic goals for themselves. Then, when they do not achieve perfect results, it leads to frustration, disappointment and disillusionment. The results they do achieve give no satisfaction. The process is extremely stressful and can lead to many emotional, mental and physical problems.” says Dr. Ripan Sippy, clinical psychologist and special educator. Read More



Do successful men make lousy husbands?

Albert Einstein’s wives would say, yes, reveals a new biography of the world-famous scientist. Do success and marriage make strange bedfellows, asks Anuradha Varma

A happy and successful marriage is a choice that both partners must make and work on, agrees New Delhi-based psychiatrist Ripan Sippy. “Successful men are perfectionists and often have unrealistic expectations. Wives of such demanding husbands could experience low self-esteem, since they struggle to keep up with their men,” says Sippy, who says his counselling experience has revealed that successful men are more prone to multiple relationships.

Delhi bases Clinical Psychologist Ripan Sippy says, “With the addition of a new member in the family responsibilities increase.
