Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2011
This description of Claus Gollmann's work was prepared when Claus Gollmann was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
Germany’s welfare system treats abused children for the symptoms of their traumas and often sends them through a maze of referrals and insufficient treatment avenues. Claus Gollmann has created an inpatient diagnostic institution—Kind in Düsseldorf—that enables doctors, social pedagogues, therapists, families, and caretakers to build their treatment on a proper assessment of root causes and to work hand in hand with one another. KiD has developed into a knowledge center for all relevant stakeholders in a field seeking creative and practical solutions.
