Collaborative Case Studies in AM:
A 48 year-old male patient with Depression, Fatigue, and Spiritual Despair (Burnout)
This series of webinars will work through one of the classic case histories described by Rudolf Steiner and Ita Wegman in their book Fundamentals of Therapy. The four webinar sessions are open to doctors, nurses and therapists. Each session will include several short teaching presentations, plus time for break-out discussion groups, arranged for either interdisciplinary discussions (October and January) or profession/modality-specific discussions (November and December).
We look forward to collaboratively deepening our own knowledge, and fruitful sharing between the many different kinds of Anthroposophic practitioners that make up our therapeutic community.
