Work-life studies expect from former students not only theoretical know-how but also cultural and interdisciplinary abilities as Marie-Christin Hallier (Photo) explains by her own CV (www.mariechristinhallier.wordpress.com) but working with children in McGregor/South Africa at a German-Russian workshop about Autism and DownSyndrom at the Tretyakov-Gallery in Moscow/Russia.
"We prefere not to speak about people being ill but people being different" she said about her work as an art therapist."At
the Alanus University we learnt to understand ourselves (YouTube) but working with children in McGregor/South Africa (YouTube) or Nairobi/Kenya (YouTube) was to get practical insights into other cultures and social focus points. What is normal can be very different byethnical heritage or by local circumstances."
