Dealing with mental illness in children, adolescents and adults with dual diagnosis
Accompanying people in need of assistance who also develop or have developed a mental illness is a great challenge. It is often difficult to even determine that, in addition to a cognitive impairment, there is also a mental disorder, or that a child with an mental disorder also has a cognitive impairment.
Professional support requires specialist competencies and special relationship skills. A new open training concept in anthroposophical social care aims to sensitize and qualify professionals accordingly.
