About Anthroposophic Health and Social Care

Anthroposophic Medicine is an established integrative medical approach which is holistic and salutogenic in its approach, taking "a whole human being" view into the method, diagnosis and therapeutic approach. It gives equal importance to the physical body, the soul/emotional life of the patient, and the individuality/spirituality of the person at the centre of the diagnostic and therapeutic approach. A wide range of professional disciplines have developed within Anthroposophic Health (anthrohealth) and Social Care.  The anthrohealth and Social Care practitioners within our movement come from a range of professional groups.  For a number of these groups their anthro-training is a post-graduate training  which builds on and extends their conventional training e.g. doctors, nurses, pharmacists.
