A new book on Conductive Education has been published independently by a conductor.

The posting about the book  states:

The Person-focused Rehabilitation, the psychosocial tools of Conductive Education (CE) will be a great interest to clinical psychologists, health psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, counsellors, physicians, rehabilitation nurses and rehabilitation service providers along to CE professionals. Service providers experience how important psychosocial factors are and this book, in part, shed light upon a model which can support the way of rehabilitation of people with physical disabilities and improve patients’ individual well-being and it is signifying to use more emotional intelligence strategies in rehabilitation.

New titles on Conductive Education are few and far between and it will be interesting to find out more about this one.  I am about to order a copy.

Some new books on Conductive Education

I have been building a library of items on Conductive Education for Conduction over the past few years. It is growing nicely now and becoming a respectable collection of books, articles, papers etc both published, and unpublished.

Today I was given two new items to add. The first is a new book in Hungarian published by Pető András Főiskola [Pető András College] in Budapest, entitled:

Tanulmányok a konduktív peadagógia köréből;A Hári Mária-pályázat gyűjteményéből. 

The welcome page of the book [translated for me into English] states:

Hari Maria is a role model for all of us because of her devoted work for sustaining and protecting the Peto method. Therefore it is not accidental that, in recognition and respect of her professional work and humanity we called the first Hari Maria competition.

This book contains papers which were submitted and accepted by professional judges –  and were written by this famous institute’s lecturers, conductors and students.

This collection of papers about Conductive Education and Pető András makes  a substantial book of 446 pages with illustrations, some black and white, some coloured. 

The second, was the abstract book for the 9th World Congress on Conductive Education which was held in Budapest , December 2016.

Other recent additions are Emlékkönyv Dr Hári Mária 1923-2001,

 and

Genesis; bringing Conductive Education to Israel.

This increasing number of books on Conductive Education is good to see after years of very little being published.

Copies of new book, Genesis, now available

After all the celebrations of Christmas and New Year it is now time to get back to reading again! I have some copies of Conductive Education Press’s latest title, Genesis, to dispose of.
This book tells something of what Tsad Kadima has done in Israel, and what this has achieved. It recounts something of the process of creating the ‘Tsad Kadima family’, which has developed over the years in a manner unique within the world of Conductive Education. This includes the vital matter of sustainability, Tsad Kadima demonstrating the potential for national Conductive Education systems to reproduce themselves and evolve for the benefit of generations to come.

The CEP quotationary of Andras Peto and his Conductive Education, first published in 2013,  is now available as a pdf  for £4.00 (no postage!) as well as the traditional book format.

The back cover blurb of the book says :

This quotationary’s 307 quotations contribute some distilled essence, including 48 sayings or reported sayings from the man himself, plus vivid direct reports from friends and associates, and the observations of some of those who have tried to nail his fleeting shadow.

These quotations come from 40 named sources, and are referenced to 15 different texts.

In the summer Conductive Education Press was asked by Tsad Kadima (Israel) if we would publish their story to celebrate 30 years of the organisation. Naturally we agreed, and are very pleased to announce that the book, Genesis, edited by Rony Schenker and published jointly by Conductive Education Press and Tsad Kadima,  is now available. An abstract on the back cover states:

This book tells something of what Tsad Kadima has done in Israel, and what this has achieved. It recounts something of the process of creating the ‘Tsad Kadima family’, which has developed over the years in a manner unique within the world of Conductive Education. This includes the vital matter of sustainability, Tsad Kadima demonstrating the potential for national Conductive Education systems to reproduce themselves and evolve for the benefit of generations to come.

 The book is the result of a lot of hard work by the final year students of the Israeli conductor training course who interviewed the parents and the professionals involved in bringing Conductive Education to Israel. It highlights the unique perspective and determination of Israeli parents 30 years ago, an example to us all.

There is an early bird price for the book  of £5.00 (plus postage and packing) on the occasion of the coming 9th World Congress of Conductive Education in Budapest.

Conductive Education e-books

For some time now I have been getting Google alerts for someone offering free pdf downloads of  Conductive Education e-books.  These titles seem very unlikely candidates for this, as they must still be in copyright with the publishers even though they date from the 1980s, so I assume they are some sort of scam to get access to people’s details. How it works I haven’t a clue!

I am sure most people are ignoring these offers for one reason or another but I suggest that those of you who are tempted, you resist.

E-books are a wonderful thing in the right place and time, but perhaps not for out dated Conductive Education material. Conductive Education Press is considering offering e-versions of some of its books but no decision has been made yet.

If you are interested let us know.

How many recent books on Conductive Education?

Conductive Education Press has another book in the pipeline and that made we wonder just how many books on Conductive Education have been published in the past five years or so. I was surprised to see that there have been quite a few, from a variety of countries – UK, Sweden, Finland, Hong Kong, Hungary, Germany, – in a variety of languages – English, German, Hungarian, Chinese.

World Book Day – hurrah for books, hurrah for Conductive Education books!

Books have always been a very important part of my life and seem to be everywhere in my house. Today is World Book Day and most libraries and book shops will be making a bit of a splash about it. I wonder how much promotion Conductive Education  books will get  in libraries of all kinds, including those holding significant amounts of material, and bookshops.

http://www.worldbookday.com/

Since 2010 nineteen books have been published on CE, with  Conductive Education Press producing seven titles covering various aspects – international development, young conductors going out into the working world, parents experiences, András Pető, and memories of Conductive Education received as a child.

Copies can be ordered by clicking on a title at

There are ideas  for several more and a new publication will come out soon to celebrate the variety of information on the subject.

Get reading!

As you can imagine this was a surprise and very worrying. Details of the book are wrong  and it also gives my name as author.  Totally WRONG. Not only is the information wrong, but the book is not free at all in any shape or form. If you follow through the instructions you will give personal details which will leave your computer,  and you, open to all sorts of hacking and intrusion.

 

Please ignore this  if you get it

 

I have seen items like this in the past for Conductive Education books, e.g. Conductive Education by Hari and Akos, Adult Conductive Education by Brown and Mikula-Toth,  Adult Hemiplegia by Ester Cotton and a part of the Birmingham Research project of 1993. None of these are available either, in fact I am sure there are NO FREE DOWNLOADS of any book on Conductive Education.
