Dr med Michaela Glöckler will speak about the challenges today’s children in developing their full potential. Specifically in relation to the increased demand on the child’s attention and changes in family life and social cohesion. How does the educational setting look like that can adequately respond to these challenges and enable rather than hinder the process of incarnation? Many children present with difficulties in concentration and attention as well as physical abilities at a young age. Dr Glöckler will discern how such difficulties can be met with the right understanding of the child’s developmental needs.

Dear teachers, doctors and therapists,
School is a place of learning. It is also a place where development happens. The child not only learns content and knowledge but also experiences life with their body and soul. How well the child’s developmental and individual needs are met at school not only strengthens or weakens their resilience to adverse life events but also determines how well they do at school. A healthy child learns better. Understanding and meeting the child’s needs for healthy development by following Salutogenetic principles is a win-win for learning and health outcomes. Out of this insight, the Steiner Waldorf curriculum and teaching didactic is founded on the question: what exactly strengthens or weakens physical, mental and spiritual health? Everything we do with our children and young adults, the ways in which they have to respond to our requests become embodied into the child and their being. This realisation leads to the question: How does education and teaching influence long term sustainable health and prevent physical and mental illness? What are the institutional conditions of the education setting that enable age appropriate and healthy development? International experts of education today suggest a new concept (which is close to Steiner Waldorf education) that can focus on the needs of each child with the help of a multi-professional team. In Steiner Waldorf education, this is traditionally provided by a team supporting the teacher consisting of school doctors, special educational needs teachers, speech, music and movement therapists, a pastoral care team and other external support. This weekend will focus on the particular conditions that an educational setting can provide in order to meet the individual children in today’s world which will foster educational outcomes, resilience and long term health.
We look forward to seeing you on February 28th at 7:30pm and/or 29th 9am.
Dr Hedda Joyce and Chia-Li Blackett
