Awakening to Child Health

Awakening to Child Health is a resource for developing a sensitive understanding of children. It is a resource for childcare professionals and parents who wish to follow their own intuition and sensibility for children's health.

The book addresses such questions as: How can we deepen our insights regarding children through personal experience? How can we better nurture, protect, and enhance our children's well being and care?

Drawing on Rudolf Steiner's understanding of child development, health, and holistic medicine, the author provides a comprehensive account of child and adolescent development, and informed by embryology and spiritual psychology.
