Tackling the research question “How to filter and categorize socio-pedagogical intentions of minors at high risk situations using outdoor pedagogic offers and the category screen by Mollenhauer and Uhlendorff?“ this bachelor thesis builds upon an experiment conducted by Mollenhauer and Uhlendorff (1992). In their book 'Sozialpädagogische Diagnosen I' documented an attempt to collect data concerning the adolescents’ lives by conducting narrative interviews and consequently find suitable experimental educational intentions.
For this purpose Mollenhauer and Uhlendorff created a category screen in order to facilitate the implementation of skill-promoting activities. Our research group has expanded this category screen by including additional activities and intentions to foster its practical applicability. The selected activities were taken from relevant literature concerning experiential pedagogic and arranged according to suitable categories. Furthermore various terms that are relevant to this subject area were defined.
In the empirically oriented part of our work we have constructed an introductory manual to outdoor pedagogy aimed at social workers that are dealing with relocated minors.
This manual was peer-reviewed and evaluated by experts in the field of socio and experiential pedagogic. Their feedback lead to a significant improvement in the user friendliness of our manual, which has now been deemed fit for use in socio-pedagogical fieldwork.
