Education – Health for Life
Education and medicine working together for a healthy development
Edited and co-authored by, Dr Michaela Gloeckler, Stefan Langhammer and Christof Weichert.Out of the world wide impulse of the Kolisko conferences 2006, came the request for a conference compendium. The concept of the book developed from one of specific published research to a text which shares the experiences and thoughts of more than 15 individuals well known in their fields. The driving force for this text was Dr Michaela Gloeckler, paediatrician who was also a waldorf teacher. There are 20 chapters, with numerous sub-chapters, the contents of which range from The Task of the School Doctor, Gifted Children, Meditations for Teachers, to Projective Geometry. A particularly moving chapter contains questions from teachers, such as How do I love my children, particularly the difficult ones, and individual support work: what age can this start?Some of our experienced teachers have seen this book and said there is such a depth to the book that they can work with it for years.The books are in A4 format, have 309 pages and a soft cover with fold back fly sheet. They weigh approximately 800 g.AAMA price: $50.00 (discounts available for schools/society members)
