Therapy from horse to man in mainbernheim

Can horses give traumatized children new self-confidence?? Can horses help hyperactive children to calm down?? And you can teach perfectionist people to be calm? Tatjana prantl and christine thiergartner are convinced of it. For a good reason: they experience the positive effect of the animals on their predominantly young patients day after day.

The therapiehof am seesteig in mainbernheim has been in existence for 15 years. For three years, the two young women together with nicola prantl offer the so-called horse-supported padagogy and therapy (PPT). Just outside of town and right next to the erich kastner children's village, tatjana prantl has converted a former stable into a cozy house. In the open stable right next to it are ten horses stabled. And they get visits almost every day from children, teenagers and adults.

Christine thiergartner looked after three therapy children, eight to nine a week tatjana prantl. "The youngest was two years old, she tells. Your problem: muscular atrophy. Contact with the horses has helped stabilize the muscles. "But adults also come to us", reports thiergartner.

New application missed

Django asul comes with the last cartridge

Django asul comes with the last cartridge

With the highly topical program "last cartridge" the sharp-tongued cabaret artist django asul makes a guest appearance on friday, 20. October, at 20 o’clock bayreuther "zentrum".
It is better to stop when it is best to stop. And now it is right already. But the beauty of it is: it is actually more difficult than ever. So django asul continues. For peace returns at last. The time of uncertainties is over. The facts are on the table. The federal government has the implosion of germany on the agenda. And even the very last one has understood: europe does not exist.

Into the microcosm

Django asul draws the right conclusion: out of the macrocosm. Into the microcosm.
Where others slip into midlife crisis, django asul strays back into real life. But reality forgives nothing. Every shot has to be right. And at some point you only have one cartridge left. The last cartridge. In focus: the essentials.
But who or what must go under cover? And so it remains to be feared: it will be a furious finale instead of an orderly retreat.
Tickets for this evening of cabaret are available at the usual advance booking offices.

The russian leadership had repeatedly stressed that it would not bow to pressure from the U.S. Political scientist alexei makarkin stressed that russia should continue not to extradite snowden to the u.S. "If u.S. President barack obama does cancel his planned september visit to moscow because of snowden, it would not be a disaster", makarkin told the newspaper "moskovsky komsomolets" (tuesday). "Russia has tried to compromise with an offer of asylum, but it was too little for snowden and too much for the U.S. – this shows that a solution will be very difficult."

In washington, national security council spokeswoman bernadette meehan told the dpa news agency that obama plans to travel to russia in september. Government spokesman jay carney said the u.S.

Jurgen ankenbrand: this year we haven’t had a single incident, but generally it happens once or twice a year. Sometimes we have over 1000 visitors a day, so you can’t keep your eyes everywhere.

Especially during the vacation season, the sinnflut is very busy. Do parents need to worry about their children being sexually abused?
I think not. Our staff is trained to recognize such incidents. In addition, a clear distinction must be made between sexual abuse and sexual harassment, which is also precisely defined by law.
