Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: explain new social principals applied in anthroposophical and Camphill communities and apply these principles more consciously in their life and work.

This course is offered in a retreat format. Participants explore, in an artistic and humanistic framework, the work in anthroposophic curative education that grows out of a universal impulse of striving for the humanity in each individual and for creating conditions in the social context and in the environment to support and enhance its unfolding. Participants are introduced to innovative social ideals pursued in the anthroposophical movement including the Camphill impulse. Through linking the participants to the roots of this impulse, they take ownership in a different way and their professional work can become more fully effective.
