    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.

    Here you find the published Abstract:

    Does the Marte Meo Method (MMM) improve parental skills in challenging situations such as premature, handicapped, emotionally stressed children?

    First results of an evaluation after a three-week intervention »training with MMM« at the German parent-child rehabilitation Fachklinik Bromerhof are shown. The study focus is interaction improvement parent-child with a sample of approximately 50 and a control group of about 200 families. An international working group of doctors, nurses and therapists (Austria, Croatia, Germany, Nordic countries, Switzerland) use MMM in different medical fields to improve interaction-moments between professionals, patients and relatives and thus to enable social and emotional child development.

    MMM is a video supported mikro-communicational method developed in the seventies in the Netherlands by Maria Aarts.
    German and Swiss professionals of this international medical group present with films the method and case studies of premature born, emotionally distressed and handicapped children/juveniles.
