Background

Every year, millions of children experience traumatic events. Most of them have to cope with their experiences and memories on their own. Even after years have passed, such unresolved traumata can evoke symptoms that profoundly disturb the development of children and adolescents.

By providing stabilizing actions on the basis of Waldorf education, emergency pedagogy tries to aid traumatized children and adolescents in war zones and disaster areas, by providing ways to process the traumatizing experiences. At long sight, these emergency pedagogic interventions help prevent potential long-term post-traumatic stress disorders. Find out more about our work in emergency pedagogic interventions on the following pages.
