The Development and Implementation of a Psycho-Social and Cultural Intervention for Cross-region Brides of Rural Haryana
The present study reports the development and effectiveness of a Psycho-social and Cultural intervention that was designed to enhance the well-being of cross-region brides of rural Haryana. It aimed at increasing their familiarity with Haryanvi cultural values and tradition (language, food habits, and dressing style), and their awareness of their strengths and potential, thereby enhancing their well-being levels. This was a seven-day intervention with individual and group activities, educational and entertainment sessions. The study was conducted in two phases, with a pilot (n=20) followed by the main study (n=47). The results showed a statistically significant impact of the intervention on life satisfaction (t= -2.37; p<.01), quality of life (t= 4.39; p<.01), happiness (t= -2.74; p<.01), and on the cultural (t= -2.75; p<.01) and social dimension (t= 3.00; p<.01) of well-being of the participants.
