An Introduction to Emergency Pedagogy by Franka Henn (May 5, 2023)

How can we use pedagogy to deal with the consequences of war and trauma?

At the Rudolf Steiner House on May 910, there will be a double lecture and seminar with Berndt Ruf. Ruf is well known as a doctor in anthroposophical emergency and trauma education which he advocates for with the initiative ‹Emergency Education Without Borders›. In two seminars on Tuesday evening from 6 pm, he will be speaking about trauma caused by war, and fleeing from it, and then about the possibilities offered by emergency pedagogy. The following morning from 10 a.m., the seminar will focus on dealing with traumatised children and young people. Open to everyone, the events are primarily intended as an introduction to people working with traumatised children and youth. The event is organised by MenschMusik Hamburg and Gesundheit Aktiv Nord.
