The unspeakable happens every day. Afer that, nothing is as it was. Every day, children are traumatized by violence, abuse, war, expulsion, accidents, medical interventions or natural disasters. The younger the victim is, the longer and more intense the traumatic event continues, and the closer the relationship between the trauma victim and the perpetrator, the more lasting the traumatic shock becomes.
Dealing with Trauma
Psycho-traumas are psychological wounds that can lead to life-threatening complications if inadequately treated. If children and adolescents do not succeed in coping with their stressful events, various trauma sequel disorders can occur, which can eventually lead to a biographical break in the event of a severe continuing chronic process.
Often victims then become perpetrators. Waldorf education as emergency pedagogy is a partial aspect of an overall trauma pedagogy concept that is based on a four-phase trauma progression model. Emergency pedagogy is not trauma therapy. It is an attempt to stabilize traumatized children and young people by means of pedagogical interventions, to activate their self-healing powers and to support them in the processing and the biographical integration of their traumatic experiences.
