Role of yoga to develop positive self-concept in juvenile delinquents
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sunil Kumar Deshmukh
The development of self-concept starts from the childhood of the person. The environment begins to develop self-concept as a result of its own interaction. That is the interaction of person and environment leads to the development of self-concept. Juvenile delinquents are neglected due to the negative self-concept. He begins to feel isolated from society. This negligence leads to antisocial behavior. The necessity is to change his negative perception. Self-concept is a set of qualities of a person by which he expresses himself. Psychologist Murphy (1947) defines it as, individual as known to the individual. According to Saraswat and Gaur (1981), self-perception is the path to see oneself. According to Symonds (1951), self-assertion is a reaction to oneself. This reaction is understood by four facts. First, how does he see himself? How does he think about himself? How does he give value to himself? And what does he try to protect and develop him? In the context of this problem, Pandya Dr. Pranav (2002) accepts Yoga as a preventive medicine. According to Saraswati Dr. Karmananda and Swami Satyananda (1994) - We can teach a lot of juvenile delinquent children by compound techniques (combination of Karma-Bhakti-Gyana Yoga), with their physical side and mental and emotional side. According to Köstler Geraldine (1974) Yoga is a practical method of mental and emotional development. According to Dalal (1992) Yoga is the only means to remove the negative emotions and develop divine qualities.
