Welcome to the Developmental Concept

Our approach offers a unique view of development, presenting a practical model combining both Eastern and Western knowledge and understanding.

Developmental Concept

In the first year of life, an important development window occurs, as key sensory-motor milestones and our emerging meridian blueprint start to lay the foundations for future development.

The Developmental Concept aims to bring the Western knowledge of neuroscience, developmental physiology and psychology into alignment with the knowledge and experience of Eastern Medicine and meridian theory.
When viewed together as a holistic concept, we can also gain insights into themes which link our early development to topics and presentations in our later school years or adult life. As such, the topics of development forms a concept for the whole-of-life.

The Developmental Concept is the result of many years of research and clinical experience by Karin Kalbantner-Wernicke and Dr. Thomas Wernicke. When not working in their paediatric clinic in Germany they are teaching their work internationally and at university.
This website brings the Developmental Concept into the online space for the first time, and here you will find information and links to courses with our partners.

Because wherever you are in the world, you will always find babies and parents, and our future generations developing.
