Intertwining theory and practice
In doubt, it is the interweaving of practical elements, theoretical background knowledge and self-reflection, which is lacking in many of the specialist schools. This was the reason for Birgit Brombacher to begin his studies.
As a positive, she feels, for example, that you now know exactly what neural processes happen in a child when he / she learns. And it can recognize much better behavioral problems in the workplace and then solve the problem in cooperation with specialists from neighboring disciplines, as explained in two examples.
Recognize special talents
"If I suspect that a child is impaired in their motor or speech development, I can now carry out initial diagnostic tests myself and then ensure in good time that the child is being promoted - for example, by a physiotherapist or speech therapist. Conversely, I can also be highly gifted Better recognize and promote children. "
New media in use
Brombacher is particularly enthusiastic about the potential applications that work with new media such as digital photography and video offer - and for which students in Heidelberg are specially trained in video technology and film editing.
On the one hand, they are able to record their own work on video and then analyze the possibilities of improvement with lecturers and fellow students. On the other hand, the modern technology can be used, above all, in counseling sessions with parents, as the student says from his professional practice:
"Only if we include the parents in the educational work, we can achieve something with the children. So it's handy to be able to film behavioral problems with the child or the interaction between the parent and the child and thus illustrate to the parents what could be done even better. "
Study without detours
Birgit Brombacher would therefore be able to opt for felbi immediately, if she could choose today, without the detour education and psychological studies. There are no drawbacks to the course of studies, on the contrary, although it has already gained a lot of experience, the contents have not overlapped:
"The degree program is so well designed that I never thought 'I already know, I already know'".
