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.

Collated by Irene Groh and Mona Ruef. Part of the Persephone series published by the Medical Section, in response to world wide demand for more indications for observations and interventions when working with children. The book quotes therapeutic indications given by Rudolf Steiner for School Doctors and Teachers in Waldorf Schools. The range given is very wide, including classic issues such as poor memory, gifted memory, epileptic, goody-goodies (!), enunciation and many more valuable areas of concern.The book is a soft cover, blue, with a photo on the font, a 12 page inserted index and the text is 112 pages.
