The fact that a flight and her preceding experiences don’t pass by a child’s or a growing’s mind without a trace probably lets surmise itself. However, the magnitude of such traumatic experiences is often underestimated. With the refugee’s wave of 2015, many fled adolescents have come to Austria, some of them went through very difficult times and developed a traumatization. Trauma pedagogy should help traumatized children and youngsters to pave the way in a “normal” everyday life. The focus is on unaccompanied minor refugees that (have to) begin a new life in stationary social pedagogy. The challenges they have to face in the everyday life are multifaceted. On the other side there are social pedagogues who often react helplessly to the behavior of their fosterlings. Excessive demand at this point is no rarity, commonly along with less knowledge about the genesis and development of traumatization.
In the present paper with the topic “traumapedagogical concepts with unaccompanied minor refugees in the stationary social pedagogy” the positive effects of trauma pedagogy are thematised and their importance in the pedagogical everyday life is scrutinized.
