Seminar with Judith Kröll

In this seminar Judith Kroell will discuss the methods she uses when working with severely disabled people and her current project with the Tomatis® Method. Tomatis® is a listening method that stimulates the brain and progressively helps it analyse sensory messages more effectively. She will talk about a pilot project with six people who have multiple disabilities caused by Prader-Willi-Syndrome and traumatic brain injury. In this interdisciplinary approach Tomatis® listening sessions are combined with regular interactive work using a Forbrain® device and also certain kinaesthetic techniques.

Judith Kroell is a sociologist and a Tomatis®Consultant based in Vienna. She is a lecturer at the department of Science and Technology Studies, University of Vienna and she is a member of the research / art group Shared Inc. which has a long-term project about people in vegetative state.


In the context of ‘doing research’ ‘in the field’(/wild) and ‘writing/producing a research report’ in the ‘Caring. Enactments of Heterogeneous Relationships’ annual project, we would like to look at different methods of research used in fieldwork and writing. Through inviting guests to share their working processes with us, we will ask how these methods relate to what is observed, how they construct the entities produced and determine what we can know.
