If you want to educate others, you yourself need to be educated. If you want to have any kind of influence on young people, you yourself need to stay young and continuously work on yourself.

Destroyed Soul Landscapes

What began with a football World Cup in 2006 and Waldorf Youth Festival in Stuttgart ended for some in the Lebanon war. A group of students could not travel back to their home country. This was the birth of Waldorf Education as Emergency Padagogy, which was cofounded by Bernd Ruf, director of the Parzival Centre in Karlsruhe. Since then, emergency pedagogues have been trained and deployed extensively throughout the world. The latest mission was carried out after the fire at Grenfell Tower in London. In this article Ruf describes the central elements of Emergency Pedagogy: the self-healing powers of the traumatically afflicted child are to be stimulated by means of Waldorf education-oriented interventions and the body and soul qualities are to be harmonized again. Far away from war-torn countries, trauma pedagogy can also be an important companion, even in apparently safe places such as a Swiss classroom, for example in cases of death in the family, domestic violence or frequent relocations.

Time and again, children and young people experience the incomprehensible. They suffer the loss of  the ones they trust,  get pulled into grave accidents or have to undergo serious medical procedures due to illness. They are victims of natural disasters, wars, torture, flight and displacement. Millions of children are neglected, sexually abused and abused by the ones they trust (1). When the inconceivable occurs, the lives of these children and young people are permanently changed. The consequences of the experiences are all the more serious, the younger the child is and "the closer the relationship to the  perpetrator" (2).


In the case of children,  the  experiences need not be  quite so extreme to nevertheless elicit   penetrating  persistently painful symptoms. Children experience and evaluate experiences differently than adults (3). The death of a pet, separation experiences  from  loved ones or a move can have a traumatic effect (4). Media consumption can also traumatise children (5).


Psychotraumatization: When psychological wounds occur 

Traumatic experiences are  experiences where the people affected feel existentially threatened and   their inner resilience has not yet grown strong enough  to process the experience. “Trauma” means “injury and lasting damage to an existing organism"(6). Psychotraumas are externally-caused psychological injuries. As most physical wounds heal after a time, psychological wounds caused by stressful experiences can also heal. However, there may be scars which can break open when subjected to stress again (7). In rare cases, the consequences of a trauma only become apparent many years later. Similar to physical wounds, severe  psychological infections can occur as a result of inadequate wound care, which can  even lead to death.


After a severe trauma, nothing is as it once was. Traumas change lives (4). In addition to a variety of psychosomatic reactions, such as headaches and abdominal pains or indigestion and eating disorders, the affected children and youth suffer from terrible memories, which forcefully take a hold of them and can instil fear of death through so-called flashbacks. Flashbacks are no ordinary memories of completed events that one can look back on  from the security of the here and now. The victims  of a flashback feel that they are back in the middle of the catastrophe and  will exhibit the corresponding symptoms and reactions. For others, the experiences are so unbearable that they suppress the events into the unconscious and cannot remember them at all, which is referred to as amnesia.


Concentration- and sleep-disorders are just as much signs of traumatic over-stimulation as  are anxiety, fear and panic attacks. Rhythm disturbances of any kind can also occur after traumatisation. Many children and adolescents are sad, depressed and appear as if paralyzed after traumatic experiences. The shock has literally gone into their limbs. Others show symptoms such as hyperactivity and lack of impulse control.  In the case of  young children suffering relational traumas, dissociative symptoms usually occur. The children withdraw from their bodies and from what is happening to them. In the midst of the catastrophe, an inner numbness prevails  and  deathlike quiet. Later on, these children and youth often show self-harming behaviour. They cut themselves to experience that they are still alive through physical pain. In children, developmentally regressive behaviour also frequently occurs. They try to save themselves through a retreat to "safe islands of previous experiences" (7), which manifests in bed-wetting, thumb sucking, baby talk or separation anxiety. One can understand that children try to avoid triggers that could cause flashbacks to the trauma. Triggers can be images, odours, noises, colours, movements, etc. Avoidance strategies can also lead to emotional numbness that together with irrational feelings of shame and guilt can put a strain on everyday life and relationships.


All of these symptoms, which occur after extreme stress, are normal reactions to an abnormal situation. The symptoms are rational. Fear can save from danger and hyper-alertness can warn. When perceiving a danger, the human body is put into an increased state of alertness. However, if extreme stress persists for a long time or occurs again and again, the brain is put into a permanent state of alarm. This overexcited alertness leads ultimately to the perception of dangers that do not even exist (8). The body releases its own substances in order to prepare the body for a confrontation that is not there. “Acute stress is a biologically sensible accommodation  to a dangerous situation. Chronic stress, on the other hand, is a core cause of civilization-wide diseases "(2).


In the first three years, the child's brain is particularly vulnerable (9) to extreme stress experiences. Through the  extreme stress that arises  in the case of abuse, the psyche can suffer wounds that are equivalent to “micro-injuries”, and in children, these can permanently affect the brain and overall physical development (2). In most cases, the children will lack a conscious memory of the trauma. Nevertheless, it will still persist in the body (8) (10) and can, for example, "manifest as a persistent sense of emotional overwhelm or as  diffuse  avoidant  behaviour .”(11).


Long-term Psycho-traumatic Disorders: When psychological wounds infect 

In the acute shock phase after extreme stress experience, children and adolescents are usually " frozen" (7).  They often react  through emotional daze  and chaotic behaviour. This phase only lasts for a few hours and then usually  the phase of post-traumatic stress follows with a wide range of possible symptoms. In about 85% of accident victims and 75% of  earthquake victims, the trauma symptoms subside more and more during this phase and usually disappear completely after six to eight weeks. Rape and war experiences reduce the coping rate to 50%. There is no chance to process relationship trauma in early childhood  without external help. If traumatically-caused symptoms persist even after weeks and months, one speaks of a post-traumatic disorders.  In such cases most frequently a Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is diagnosed. A distinction is made between simple PTSD with a single traumatization (type I trauma) and complex PTSD (12) with multiple and multi-traumatization as well as sequential traumatization and developmental traumas (type II trauma). Complex traumatizations in children are often accompanied by a high number of accompanying illnesses. However, all symptoms that occur in response to traumatic stress can also develop into independent disorders: anxiety disorders, compulsions, depression, etc. (2). Children are often diagnosed with separation anxiety (59%), oppositional defiance (36%), phobias (36%) and ADHD (29%) after traumatisation. All these disturbances belong to the symptoms of a PTSD (13). After extreme stress, chronic post-trauma disorders can lead to persistent identity and personality disorders (23). Those who are affected  all too often cannot  integrate socially and suffer  isolation. They fail in their profession and relationships, and become addicted, delinquent and suicidal. (24)


Emergency Pedagogy: First Aid for the Soul   

Trauma pedagogy is a (curative) pedagogical approach to stabilizing and supporting traumatized children and youth and it is a necessary prerequisite, accompaniment and supplement of an appropriate therapeutic process "(11). Emergency Pedagogy is one aspect of trauma education (25). It starts at the moment that defines whether the trauma itself can be managed or whether a psychotrauma follow-up disorder will develop.   Its focus is not trauma therapy.  Rather, the self-healing powers of the traumatically afflicted child are to be stimulated by means of Waldorf education-oriented interventions. Emergency pedagogical interventions can stabilize traumatized children. They help the child or youth to process the trauma and integrate it into their own biography. Waldorf education methods are used for psychosocial stabilisation in emergency pedagogy. Emergency Padagogy is first-aid for the soul (26). 


Through targeted rhythmic support, the traumatised child's being is to be harmonised again and its self-healing powers are to be  activated.   This process involves, among other things, structured and rhythmic daily routines and regulated eating and sleeping times. Rituals such as  saying grace, and other morning and evening routines provide security, support and new orientation. Movement therapy approaches of eurythmy and Bothmer gymnastics, as well as massages and rhythmic rubs can help to relieve trauma-related cramps (contraction). Artistic activities such as painting, drawing, modelling clay, dancing or making music can help lend creative expression to the indescribable, verbally incommunicable , and thus  offer aide in  the reintegration process.


Experiential pedagogical approaches can rebuild the trust lost through trauma in oneself and others (e.g. through climbing exercises), can help to strengthen the often severely impaired ability to concentrate (e. g. through string games, memory or pick-up sticks), and can playfully compensate for the traumatic loss of social competencies and help develop new social skills. The telling of fairy tales and stories as well puppet shows have also proved to be helpful in the Emergency Pedagogy intervention.


Traumas fixate victims on the past and block their access to the future. Prospects for the future must first be reclaimed. This  work can be conducted  through joint planning and implementation of projects such as a  cooking a joint meal or  planning and going on a field trip. In this way, traumatic feelings of powerlessness and helplessness are overcome, new skills are acquired and experiences of self-efficacy are established.


After psychotraumatisation, children and youth need competent and immediate human aid and safety. Not only do they need to be safe in the real world, they also have to feel safe, because without this experience of safety, the psychological wound cannot heal. The experienced loss of security in the outer world as a 'safe place' permanently destroys the perception of an inner sense of security of the individual self "(11). “Safe places” can be educational facilities, emergency tents in refugee camps or simply marked open spaces in ruins (14). Children and youth should be provided with educational support in these structured, safe child protection canters. “The pedagogical place as an external safe place offers clear structures and sets rules and consequences for (...) children"(13). This process reduces the internal chaos caused by the trauma. The boundary gives new footing.


The most important factor for healing traumatizations is the  formation of relationship (15). It can lead to a strengthening of the trauma patient's personality (12). Neurobiological research shows that the correction  after the "violation of basic trust" (16) through the offering  of new,  dependable relationships can be the most powerful path to trauma processing (9).


Waldorf education as emergency pedagogical crisis intervention                             

The damaging effects of traumatisation vary depending on the stages of childhood development (7). The resources for coping with trauma are also age-dependent (17). The following explanations are based on sketches offered by the Israeli physician Meron Barak (18):


During the first seven years, trauma has a damaging effect on the connection between the vital organism (etheric body) and the body (physical body). The metabolic - limb system is particularly affected. Rhythms must be nurtured and the basic senses  must be strengthened. The children should be  guided in their doing through imitation.  


In the second seven–year cycle, trauma mainly damages the relationship between vital organisms (etheric body) and  the psyche (astral body) as well as in the rhythmic system. Visual artistic instruction as well as eurythmy, painting and music are healing.


In the third seven–year cycle, in the period of puberty, adolescence and coming of age, psychotraumatisation mainly disrupts the relationship between the psyche (astral body) and the self (ego) as well as the  nerve-sense system. There is then the danger that the astral body will either connect too deeply or not deeply enough with the metabolic-limb system (physical body). That is why it is beneficial to encourage social activities, to pay attention to clear thinking and to offer the young person opportunities to engage with ideals by means of biographies.  


Waldorf education defines itself as  a pedagogy  grounded in a spiritually expanded, holistic view of humanity (19). Man is understood as a being   that  already exists before birth and will live on after death. One of the specific tasks of Waldorf education is to support and promote the incarnation process of the child, i.e. the phase-specific connection of the spiritual dimension with its physical foundations, by means of pedagogical interventions.


In Anthroposophical terms, a psychotrauma can be understood as a state of shock (20). In this shock process, the "essential bodies” (21) (19) of man torn from their normal functional structure. This excarnation process can lead to near-death experiences. It is possible that the partially detached, "dislodged" structures of the essential bodies no longer work together in an orderly  harmonic manner. These states of dislocation can lead to psychopathological symptoms (ibid.)


It is the task of Waldorf Education-Oriented Emergency Pedagogy to aide in the restoration of the harmony among the different bodies  after trauma. Waldorf education,  which understands itself as an  aide to a child and youth’s  incarnation,  is  in a singular fashion well suited to offer its contribution to the healing process through Emergency Pedagogy.



Bernd Ruf was co-founder of and a teacher at the Waldorf School Karlsruhe for more than 20 years. Bernd Ruf's activities spread worldwide with the growing Waldorf school movement, especially in socially under resourced and crisis areas. Since 1990, he has been the managing director of the Friends of Waldorf Education. Bernd Ruf also co-founded the Parzival School Center in Karlsruhe in 1999. Today the Center is comprised of six schools: a special education and counselling centre (SBBZ), the Karl-Stockmeyer Waldorf School, refugee classes (VAB-O) and vocational preparation classes (VAB). In addition, there is a children's home that includes a child day care facility, a nursery, and a special needs kindergarten. In addition, there is a zoo and a school farm on the grounds of the Parzival School Centre, along with a social therapy and an outpatient clinic for Emergency Pedagogy, as well as a center offering youth services. In 2006 Bernd Ruf discovered another field of work: Emergency Pedagogy. He is also a member of the International Conference of the Waldorf Education Movement (Haager Kreis) and holds regular lectures and seminars on Waldorf and Emergency Pedagogy in Germany and around the world.
