I am Indrė Steponavičiūtė-Kupčinskė – psychologist working with youth and their families. In 2017, I graduated in BSc Health Psychology from Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, and in 2019 received a Master’s degree in Educational Psychology from Vytautas Magnus University.
In my practice, I provide workshops and seminars on a variety of psychology topics for students from different age groups in the Gymnasium of Lithuanian University of Health Sciences, Aušra Gymnasium and Vilnius Martynas Mažvydas Progymnasium. I have also provided emotional support for young people over the phone at the Lithuanian Youth Line, concluded a plan to strengthen psychological resilience and contributed to the psychological assessment of children aged 9-13 at the Psychological Support and Counselling Center, and contributed to the programme of a camp for the 12th-grade students organized by Viva Psychology (led discussions, art therapy classes, interactive relationship workshops, self-education seminars, improvement activities). In my professional research, I have examined relationship satisfaction among young adults, a link between the use of social networking sites in the classroom and academic and social school adjustment in 9th and 10th-grade pupils.
Currently, I conduct group activities for youth with special needs and gifted children in non-formal art school Amici Art, provide emotional support for children and psychoeducation for parents, and create educational activities in school-kindergarten Gilė. I also host group and individual sessions, consultations with youth and their parents in the Children Day Care Centre in Vilkija.
