"Additional to mental/body handicaps lately there are also quite a lot of social disruptions due to wars/other migration or just from conflicts within the surrounding of people" the German art-therapist Marie-Christin Hallier ( Her Website ) stated explaining her additional education for social development therapy.


The socio-emotional profile of the patients is measured and documented over several weeks . Especially focussed are frights, defense mechanisms, chances for social interventions, the individual private reality and the evaluation of the living environment. In Germany the specific courses for teachers are taught in a mix of theory and applied/vocational case-studies and supervision of 48 hours over a period of a year.
