Social educational work within mental health

March 2017 AIEJI published a report that sheds light on how social educators can improve the lives and situations of persons with a mental illness. AIEJI members have contributed with qualitative interviews from seven countries: Brazil, Denmark, Italy, Norway, Russia, Spain and Switzerland. The social educators interviewed work within the social psychiatry as well as the treatment psychiatry. Theoretical and empirical perspectives have been incorporated into the delineation of good practices for social educational work within the field of mental health.

Social Educational work with refugee minor asylum seekers
June 2015 AIEJI finished a report about this very important global issue. Members of AIEJI contributed by participating in a survey about the target group in 16 countries. And in 4 countries (Italy, Spain, Israel and Denmark) social educators were interviewed about their work with the group, and In Italy and Denmark 7 unaccompanied refugee minors were interviewed about their life situation. The report reflects on both empirical and theoretical issues and ends by giving messages about social educational work that benefits the refugee minors and messages to the political level about political priorities concerning the the unaccompanied refugee minors.

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and Social Education
In September 2012 AIEJI held a seminar to discuss the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child in relation to placed children. The seminar focused on how national legislations mention placed children and their rights and the role of social educators as guarantors of their rights.

The result is the paper “The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and Social Education – children placed outside the home” which we hope will be used at relevant workplaces, authorities and institutions to discuss how the rights of placed children can be ensured.

The profession of social education in Europe                                                                                    December 2011 a comparative survey concerning the profession of social education was published. It was initiated by the Sanish AIEJI member organisation CGEES. The survey underlines a European variation regarding the different educations and understandings of the profession and terminologies where different historical, cultural and social factors play a role. The survey gives a needed overview of the profession in Europe and a platform to discuss and promote the profession in the context of The European Union.

The professional competences of social educators
In 2006, the board of AIEJI decided to create a document that would stand as a common professional framework for social educators all over the world. The result was the document The Professional Competences of Social Educators – a conceptual framework. The purpose of this document is not to come up with a final definition of social education but to give inspiration both to the individual social educator and the social educational work places at a national level in order to develop and discuss the profession.

  • PORTUGUESE TRANSLATION NOTE:

    In the portuguese translation of “Working with persons with developmental disabilities” the Einar Skjæraasen’s poem has translation problems. I asked Dea in last year’s Barcelona meeting about some translation doubts, but I lost the notes I took then.
    The portuguese translation was made by me and Paula Vianna – board member of AEESSP – São Paulo State Social Educator’s Association.
