Schools of therapy/therapeutic approaches at kbo-Kinderzentrum München

Montessori Therapy

This concept was developed into an independent form of therapy on the basis of experiences in integrative education at the Munich Children's Centre. Brigitte Schumann and Lore Anderlik were significant colleagues in this process. An advanced training in Montessori therapy is now offered.

Orff music therapy

Orff music therapy was integrated into the sociopaediatric treatment concept from 1970 onwards in order to support the emotional development of the children. It has its musical roots in the Orff School System. Its application in a sociopaediatric setting led to the development of specific indications and objectives for music therapy and to a focus on the developmental processes of the children affected.
A part-time course in Orff music therapy is offered at the Munich Children's Centre.

The Munich Crying Baby Outpatient Clinic was integrated into the sociopaediatric treatment concept in 1990. This service offers diagnosis and advice to parents of children with early childhood regulation disorders.
