Based on many years of medical, artistic, therapeutic, and anthroposophic experience, the author presents a concentrated foundation for the development of artistic therapy and the training of therapists. Although written with painting therapists in mind, this clearly formulated book—a fundamental work in this field—will be of interest to anyone involved in other forms of therapeutic work, as well as all serious students of Anthroposophy.

Fundamentals of Artistic Therapy includes fifty full-color examples from Hauschka's course at the School for Artistic Therapy.

Margarethe Hauschka

Margarethe Hauschka (1896-1980) studied Medicine in Munich and worked as a doctor at the Ita Wegman Clinic, where she had responsibility for artistic therapy and helped develop Rhythmical Einreibungen, a method of rhythmical massage. After marrying Rudolf Hauschka, she worked at the Biologischen Hospital in Höllriegelskreuth. From 1950, she devoted herself to course and seminar activity, and in 1962 she founded the School for Artistic Therapy and Massage in Boll, Germany.
