„What is necessary for a succesfull cooperation between the Wiener Schulsozialarbeit and the Wiener Amt für Jugend und Familie?“ is the title of this Bachelor Thesis.
This paper is an examination of a successful cooperation between the “Wiener Schul-sozialarbeit” and the ”Amt für Jugend und Familie”. In Austria social work at schools are still at the beginning and it has not established as a field of action like it is already in other European countries, yet. This thesis goes into the history of social work at schools in German- speaking countries and gives an overview of standards, actions principles, duties, offers, methods and the target group. This paper treats of general conditions and the organisation. Cooperation is the focal point of the empirical research, which is regarded from experts, who work as social workers at schools and at youth welfare offices. Finally, this obtains a critical view of both institutions and gives basic prerequisites, which are necessary for a successful cooperation between social work at schools and the “Amt für Jugend und Familie”.
