Bringing Conductive…

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.
