Anthroposophical Social Therapy
Anthroposophical Social Therapy has to do with adults who for cognitive, psychological and/or physical reasons have a special need for support. In such cases it offers its help. Social Therapy has as its essential foundation the anthroposophy of Rudolf Steiner and endeavors to achieve a deeper understanding of man’s being. The starting point for this is the anthroposophical image of man. It understands every human individual as a person with a healthy, indestructible spiritual essence and whose dignity is inviolable.
