Autogenes Training mit Kindern - Möglichkeiten und Grenzen by Anja Riese

By Anja Riese

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2003 im Fachbereich Psychologie - Beratung, Therapie, be aware: sehr intestine, Universität Trier, three Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Schule battle sicher zu keiner Zeit ein Ort des reinen Vergnügens, wie E.

Doch verschärft wird die Problematik noch dadurch, dass diese Symptome häufig - unterstützt durch Eltern, Lehrer und Ärzte – mit verschiedenen Medikamenten „behandelt“ werden. Diese Tendenz zum „ lockeren Griff zur Tablette“ ist in mehrfacher Hinsicht bedenklich.
