Training in the field of curative education and social therapy based on anthroposophy can be undertaken in many countries. Depending on the country where the training is undertaken, it leads to a variety of occupational titles: in Germany it is “Heilpädagoge” or “Heilerziehungspfleger”, in Switzerland “Heilpädagoge” or “Sozialpädagoge”, and other titles in other countries.
Common to all such training is the “triple method”, the combination of knowledge, practice and art, because the training is seen as a path to

  • acquiring understanding for the child, the young person or adult
  • offering him or her what he or she needs and
  • acting creatively in each situation
