Anthroposophical Art Therapy
A form of medicine, Anthroposophy gives a holistic view of the human being, supported by science. It was founded by Rudolph Steiner (1861 – 1925), philosopher, educator and artist, creator of the Waldorf schools, as well as Biodynamic Agriculture, among dozens of programs aimed at the development of the human being, guiding him to connect and take care of his own self nature, in order to communicate firmly and transparently with the world around you. Anthroposophical Art Therapy is a complementary discipline to Anthroposophical medicine, it was developed in Switzerland, around 1925 by Dr. Margareth Hauschka, according to the teachings of Dr. Ita Wegman, recognized collaborator of Rudolph Steiner.
