The Marte Meo Method helps to improve interactions and social-emotional development.

For the first time, at 12th of June 2014, the Team of Marte Meo Medical International could present the Marte Meo Method at a medical congress in Switzerland:

A presentation with film at the third joint congress of Swiss pediatricians, surgeons for children and juveniles and psychiatrists for children and juveniles that took place on 12th./13th of June 2014 at the Congress Center Basel in Basel, Switzerland.

The following Abstract has been published in the Swiss Medical Weekly, The European Journal of Medical Sciences, Supplementum 203, May 26, 2014, p. 10.

After the congress this Swiss medical scientific Journal was sent to all Swiss medical doctors.
It seems that in Switzerland the Marte Meo Method should now be accepted as a valid scientific method for at least certain medical fields.

[Bergen, 7 & 8-2-2012] The first »International Marte Meo Conference On Dementia Care & Age Psychiatry« was held in Bergen, Norway.
Organisation: Marianne Munch.

At the conference Maria Aarts showed in a dynamic and instructive way the link between babies’ need on emotional and developmental support and the need of persons with dementia to be seen. She explained the importance of »leading« or »following« moments in order to experience coping with everyday challenges and to experience a meaningful communication. (For details concerning the Marte Meo elements, see: Maria Aarts, »Marte Meo – Basic Manual, 2nd ed.«, ISBN 978-90-75455-16-8; in German: »Marte Meo – Ein Handbuch, 3rd ed.«, ISBN 978-90-75455-26-7; in Danish: »Marte Meo – Grundbog, 2nd ed.«, ISBN 978-90-75455-10-6; in Latvian: »Marte Meo – Rokasgramata, 2nd ed.«, ISBN978-9934-8163-0-7. Visit the Marte Meo Meo International Webshop for detailed information; click here).
Several Marte Meo projects were presented:
  • Projects concerning implementation of the Marte Meo Method in nursing homes (Helga Stokka and Inger …).
  • Evaluation of the Marte Meo practitioner course in four nursing homes - part of the Norwegian Health Ministry’s program in Dementia Care (Marianne Munch, Lic. Marte Meo Supervisor; Marte Meo Therapists Raj Gupta, Ingrid Haug Olsen and Leading Nurse Heidi Hansen).
  • Another interesting project, in cooperation with the University College of Molde, was presented by Supervisor May-Britt Storjord.
  • Supervisor Astrid Andersen presented the results of her master’s on Marte Meo, and Rigmor Alnes presented three of her articles being part of her doctorate on the effects of Marte Meo in Dementia Ward.
  • Doctor Ursula Becker, Lic. Marte Meo Supervisor, presented two very interesting presentations. The first on Marte Meo and Autonomy in Dementia Care. The second focused on Marte Meo as Palliative Dementia Care.
  • Finally a model for using Marte Meo in the Specialised Hospital Care was presented and information given regarding the various Marte Meo educations.
The feedback from the participants was very positive. It was so good that we are planning a second conference on Marte Meo On Dementia Care and Elderly Care Psychiatry in 2013. We will keep you informed.

[Trier, 26-09-2014] Start Autumn Season Events

[Eindhoven, 04-10-2014] It’s quite seldom, that I stay at Eindhoven for a long time. Mostly I’m traveling around, because that belongs the work. But this summer period I was at home for over 2 months. Of course not just free wheeling, always enough work around. But the pace is different, with time for nice things, like staying in the beautiful baroque city of Lecce/Puglia, Italy. At the end of August, closing in much quicker then I thought, the first Marte Meo Course at my international Marte Meo Centre, Eindhoven, was held. And then the roller coaster took off:
Marte Meo events in Croatia (Silvija Phillips Reichherzer),
Bergen (Marte Meo Medical & Marte Meo Nordic Congress),
Bielefeld (ILK),
Warendorf (Caritas; with Michael Hipp),
Osnabrück (Marte Meo Bewegung Germany Symposium & Yearly meeting Supervisors),
Trier (Caritas),
Ludwigshafen (LuZi, City Ludwigshafen),
Saarbrücken/Bexbach (Community Family Centre),
Groningen (Zorggroep Groningen, in-company).
While all the events were fully booked or nearly sold out, people hopped from congress to congress to get last seats, some even mailing me for advocacy.
Now that September came to an end it feels so good to see Marte Meo professionals working so hard on interesting subjects, helping out people, learning every day and showing new possibilities. Seeing so many getting energy from each other and their daily successful efforts to set them going on with their important work, it feels wonderful. And there are so many stimulating moments coming, I’m sure of that.
I wish you all a nice October period.

Big Smile,
MARIA AARTS

Eindhoven (27-08-2014): Supervisors Course

Eindhoven, Marte Meo International: At the 27th of August, 2014, the Autumn Season started with the first the of the Marte Meo Supervisor Course. It was lovely to meet the Marte Meo professionals bringing in their fresh idea and their deeper insiight into several subjects during the two days at Eindhoven. Summer lasted quite a long time for me, over 2 months staying in The Nethterlands was a new experience to me. Now, with the start off of the Supervisor Course the next trips into Europe are at hand: Croatia, Norway, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Ireland. Before we know, Christmas time is coming!
I wish all of you a good and fresh start into the  season to come.

A BIG SMILE,
MARIA

About this publication:

Children often reveal through their interaction that they are in need of extra support in their development. Teachers are fully aware of this and when they see that, for example, a child has difficulties being together with others, they will try to help that child. If, despite their experience and knowledge, the situation remains unresolved, then it is logical to seek extra help. This is what this manual is all about: an attempt to provide help to support children who need it.

Four Swedish School Leaders

[Haslum, 13-5-2012] We received from Sissel Holten the following mail concerning certification of 4 Swedish school leaders:

Hello Maria,

At the Marte Meo Nordic Congress, Nyborg (Denmark, 1/3-5-2012) I promised to send you some words about my four Swedish school leaders who I've been training for two years now. They all received their Marte Certification during the latest Marte Meo Nordic Congress.

They find Marte Meo a very good help during their work as leaders, because they learn to see the teacher in an exact way by means of the films. Marte Meo also give them a good opportunity to help the

help the teachers with the leading skills at their classroom and so being more aware of the power of good relations with their pupils during teaching.
By the way: Your website is very informing! I tell everyone to take a look so they can be inspired!
Big smile,

Sissel

Marte Meo-Methode auf Jahresempfang der Alten- ...

[Hanau, 09.03.12] Das Motto des diesjährigen Jahresempfangs der Alten- und Pflegezentren des Main-Kinzig-Kreises lautete »…aus eigener Kraft«. Was sich dahinter verbirgt, ist eine Methode, mit der es gelingen kann, Beziehung unter ungleichen Ausgangsvoraussetzungen herzustellen. Die »Marte Meo-Methode« wurde von keiner Geringeren als der Begründerin selbst, der Hölländerin Maria Aarts, vorgestellt. Gemeinsam mit Geschäftsführer Dieter Bien, begrüßte der Aufsichtsratsvorsitzende des kreiseigenen Unternehmens, Dr. André Kavai, zum »Treffpunkt Alter 2012« im Blauen Saal des Hanauer Wohnstifts die weit über 250 Gäste. Unter der Moderation von Tim Frühling vom Hessischen Rundfunk gab es neben fachlichen Themen aber auch viel Unterhaltung.

[…]
Zum fachlichen Höhepunkt der Veranstaltung gehörte unzweifelhaft der Beitrag von Maria Aarts. Sie gab den Gästen einen ersten Einblick in das von ihr entwickelte Konzept, dessen Grundlage die Frage ist, was Menschen mit eingeschränkten Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten im Alltag benötigen, um sich sicher und als Person wahrgenommen zu fühlen und auf dieser Basis ihre noch vorhandenen Fähigkeiten in einem größtmöglichen Maß nutzen zu können. Anders ausgedrückt: Wie kann es gelingen, Beziehung unter sehr ungleichen Ausgangsvoraussetzungen herzustellen? Maria Aarts beantwortete diese Frage aber nicht abstrakt. Sie zeigte vielmehr, wie es mit Hilfe von Videos gelingt, ganz konkret zu erfassen, wo und wie dies im alltäglichen Miteinander möglich ist.
Dabei machte sie deutlich, dass es die einfachen, kleinen, alltäglichen Gesten und Handlungen sind, mit denen Sicherheit und Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten vermittelt werden, die den Betroffen helfen, sich verstanden zu fühlen und die Welt zu verstehen. Durch die Videodarstellung wird dieses – oft intuitiv angewandte – Verhalten bewusst und damit nutzbar gemacht. »Dies stärkt,« so Maria Aarts in ihrem Vortrag, »auch die Selbstwahrnehmung der Bezugspersonen und bietet die Möglichkeit, sich weiterzuentwickeln.« Das Konzept zeichnet sich durch Alltagsbezug, leichte Anwendbarkeit und gute Verständlichkeit aus. Aarts machte auch deutlich, dass auch Angehörigen auf diese Weise ein gutes Bild von den eigenen Fähigkeiten und den Bedürfnissen des Erkrankten vermittelt werden kann.

Marte Meo: Developing Competency - In Children's ...

[Kristiansand, 2-2-2012] Rolf Rohde, Kristiansand, Norway, wrote us:
»Marte Meo As Part Of Developing Competency - In The Best Interest Of Children«
A network project between Western Balkan children’s homes and the University of Agder, Kristiansand, Norway, grounded upon the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
 
The University of Agder was awarded the financial resources necessary to fund a three-year competency-raising project in the Western Balkans. These funds were provided by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs under a program entitled: »Peace, Reconciliation and Democracy in the Western Balkans.«

The project aims to contribute to the establishment of a network between children’s homes. It also aims at raising staff competency levels in order to provide high-quality child care. Work is being completed to achieve these goals through organizational and sustainable staff development.
As a part of this program a groups of selected child care workers has been chosen to participate in the Marte Meo Practitioner education. Each children’s homes was provided a film camera and two colleagues from the same place film each other in daily interaction with children. When we meet for a two days seminar we give feedback on the films. We analyze the films together with the participants and underline the parts containing supportive interactions. The model and way of working in this program has been developed adjusted to local context and in accordance with the standards of Marte Meo International procedures.
The network of children’s homes is from Split in Croatia, Beograd and Uzice in Serbia, Banja Luka, Tuzla and Sarajevo in Bosnia Herzegovina, Ljubljana in Slovenia, Skopje in Macedonia. Until now we have had seminar days in Split and Sarajevo. In May 2012, we will meet in Beograd. In this way of traveling about in the West-Baltic countries we also learn to know and experience the culture and the way of living and upbringing in this part of Europe. The sixteen participants, being children’s nurses as well as psychologists and pedagogues, find it stimulating and challenging to take part in the interaction analyzes.
Traveling the Balkan regions we clearly saw, like one of them said, »the emotional hunger of the child« and the »desire for contact«. Another participant stated: »Now I have been working in this children’s home for so many years, and by working in this way, I have found the enthusiasm I had when I started.«
We as instructors, also see how the candidates achieve new skills in daily interaction moments as they with their children.

»A Spoonful Of Food - A Spoonful Of Love«

[Kristiansand, 1-2-2012] Rolf Rohde (Marte Meo, Kristiansand, Norway) wrote us:

»A Spoonful Of Food - A Spoonful Of Love«
Marte Meo in nursing of orphan infants at Haydom Lutheran Hospital in Tanzania.

Orphan infants in Mbulu and Hanang districts in Northern Tanzania spend their first months in life at the Child Care Unit (CCU) at Haydom Lutheran Hospital (HLH). These vulnerable children are fed and nursed, but get very little emotional and social support. Can Marte Meo offer nurses and assistants at CCU additional the support they need?
This question may become the start of a post doc project conducted by PhD, Marte Meo Therapist Kari Vik and Family Therapist, Marte Meo Licensed Supervisor, Rolf Rohde.We have directly borrowed (or stolen) the beautiful saying of MariaAarts often used, when she’s analysing interaction on film. Looking stepby step for contact moments Maria often says that a child needs »a spoonful of food and a spoonful of love«.
Visiting Haydom (Tanzania) it was clear that our work supplementary needed some knowledge regarding some conditions of cultural and social codes. What are the contents of love, attachment and developmental support in contextual circumstances as we observed them at CCU? So far we think there might be a good possibility of fruitful collaboration. We’re working in between on finding the right administrative routines and a local anchoring. As soon as a working model for this concept has been developed, we will decide the frequency in visiting Tanzania and decide on the duration of the project. So far the preliminary investigations gave us some rough notions; we work on the protocols and at the same time we also still ask a lot of questions, for instance like: Since 2009 orphan infants in the catchment area of HLH are nursed at a special CCU unit. In daily care the orphans get their basic needs such as rest, sleep, food and vaccinations. However, there is little time for the staff to provide the emotional and social support that these orphan infants need to become more resilient. If the Marte Meo Method could be offered to these child nurses and assistants at CCU, followed by research on the working mechanisms of such an intervention, it probably would be possible to make clear if this method can be useful in improving the relation between the nurses/assistants and the infants, and thus the Marte Meo Method might contributes to facilitating a vigorous mental health development as well as enhance the quality of attachment for the babies. Moreover, they will probably be more capable of establishing a secure attachment to their father and family of origin, when they are brought to them or other caretakers when they are dismissed from the CCU.
Therefore we want to examine the Marte Meo Method offered to child nurses and assistants at CCU in order to establish whether this method can be useful, and thus contribute in facilitating a vigorous mental health that can be administrated at a low threshold in the public health system. Furthermore, the results will be important in deciding whether there are any universal working mechanisms of the Marte Meo Method.

What Occupational Therapists Say About Marte Meo

[English translation will follow a.s.a.p.]

Ergotherapeutinnen, tätig in eigener Praxis; Schwerpunkt: Pädiatrie

[Vienna, 19-12-2012] Patricia Eisner, Österreich, transkripierte einige Zitaten »ihrer« Marte Meo Therapeuten. Die österreichischen Therapeuten erzählen davon was ihnen Marte Meo gebracht hat, wieso Marte Meo wichtig für sie geworden ist und/oder ob Marte Meo Änderungen hervor rief:

Karin (Ergotherapeutin):
Was Marte Meo für mich gemacht hat, dass es mich in Beziehung, ins Hier und Jetzt gebracht hat. Es hat mich gelehrt, die Kinder anzusehen und bei ihnen zu sein.

Verena (Ergotherapeutin):
Was mich an Marte Meo neugierig gemacht hat, war eine Aussage von Patricia Eisner, das die Therapiestunde nicht mehr so anstrengend ist; du kommst entspannt aus der Therapiestunde raus. Das wollte ich wissen, ob etwas dran ist. Wäre voll fein, wenn das wirklich so ist.
Vor der Ausbildung zur Marte Meo Therapeutin habe ich mehr Druck gehabt, etwas tun zu müssen um etwas in das Kind rein zu bringen. Mein Wissen als Ergotherapeutin hinein zu bringen. Es war oft frustrierend, weil es nicht so funktioniert hat, wie ich es mir vorgestellt habe. Es war der große Druck da, dass ich etwas raus holen muss. Und jetzt als Marte Meo Therapeutin verstehe ich es, wenn es nicht funktioniert, ich habe nicht mehr das Schuldgefühl  »ich habe etwas falsch gemacht«. Ich kann es viel besser akzeptieren, wenn es in der Therapie nicht weiter geht, weil das Kind einfach noch nicht so weit ist. Das ich einen Schritt weiter zurück gehen muss. Das hat viel mehr Entspannung in die Therapie gebracht, Zufriedenheit in meiner Arbeit, ich sehe jetzt viel mehr kleine Erfolge, ich sehe schon in der Erstbegutachtung die Kinder auf einer anderen Ebene, nicht nur funktionell sondern sehe die Bereitschaft »ist dieses Kind bereit etwas anzunehmen«.

Andrea (Ergotherapeutin):
Was ich gelernt habe in der Marte Meo Therapeuten Ausbildung ist ganz viel. Marte Meo hat bei mir ganz viel bewirkt in der Therapiesituation. Ich warte viel mehr ab, übernehme nicht mehr so viel leitende Funktion. Früher habe ich immer Struktur gebraucht. Jetzt ist es so, dass ich mich besser einlassen kann. Reviews sind was Neues für mich. Durch die Anleitung der Eltern profitiere ich viel. Ich brauche mir keinen Kopf mehr machen, welche Spielvorschläge gebe ich ihnen mit. Ich kann den Eltern entspannt kurze Informationen mitgeben, mit denen sie mehr bewirken können als mit Spielvorschlägen.

Michaela (Ergotherapeutin):
Marte Meo ist eine super Methode, die Eltern konkret anzuleiten. Und nicht sämtliche Spielvorschläge mitzugeben, wo die Eltern oft nicht wissen wie sie es umsetzen sollen. Sondern das es einen ganz konkreten Schritt gibt und den man mit den Bildern vom Video gut besprechen kann.
Für mich persönlich war es auch so, in der Therapie nicht so viel zu tun, sondern die Kinder tun lassen.

Helga (Ergotherapeutin):
Jetzt weiß ich was »aus eigener Kraft« heißt. Weil in dem Video viel mehr Marte Meo Elemente drin waren, als ich den Eltern mitgegeben habe. Ich habe viel zu früh eingegriffen, zu viel angeboten, wo das Kind noch gar nicht so weit war; bzw. habe ich nicht so die Chance gegeben, dass sich das Kind das suchen kann, was es auch wirklich haben möchte. Was am Anfang auch schwierig war, war das Benennen, weil ich es als Frage formuliert habe. Jetzt kann ich es als Hauptsatz formulieren. Ich habe selber gelernt, dass ich mit den Kindern und mit den Eltern besser in Kontakt komme.

Julia (Ergotherapeutin):
Was hat sich für mich persönlich mit Marte Meo verändert? Ich habe gelernt abzuwarten und die Initiative des Kindes zu folgen. Das ist mir am Anfang gar nicht so leicht gefallen, weil mein Tempo schneller war als das Tempo der Kinder. Ich benenne vermehrt die Initiativen der Kinder in der Therapie. Ich benenne auch meine Initiativen genauer. Mache mich dadurch vorhersagbar für die Kinder oder im Review für die Eltern. Was sehr hilfreich ist, ist das Review an sich, weil es eine klare Struktur für ein Elterngespräch hat. Das schöne ist, das wir das gleiche Bild sehen und wir uns darüber austauschen können.

Martina (Logopädin):
Was sich für mich in meiner Arbeit als Logopädin verändert hat ist, das die Interaktionsanalyse ein fixer Bestandteil der Diagnostik ist. In der Elternberatung helfen die gleichen Bilder. Ich habe auch ganz gute Erfahrungen machen können in der Vernetzung mit Psychologinnen. Mir gefällt auch der positive Ansatz im Review, weil bei Kindern wo es in der Entwicklung nicht so läuft, schon viel Verunsicherung bei den Eltern da ist, und so die Eltern und die Kinder Sicherheit zurück bekommen, Kompetenz zurück gewinnen. Die Kamera ist bereits fixer Bestandteil des Therapiezimmers geworden und die Scheu vor dem Filmen, die vorher da war, ist ganz verschwunden.

Evelyn (Ergotherapeutin):
Für mich war es jetzt die Möglichkeit in die Kindertherapie einzusteigen. Ich trau mir es jetzt auch zu. Die Kinder dort abzuholen wo sie stehen. Mit der Marte Meo Methode traue ich es mir zu. Und auch in der Angehörigenarbeit habe ich mich weiter entwickeln können.
Ich setze Marte Meo auch in meinem persönlichen Umfeld ein. In der Kommunikation mit meinem Mann oder mit den Kindern. Vor allem mit meinem jüngsten. Ich gehe ganz anders mit ihm um, weil es mir bewusster ist.
