When minors are forced to flee their country of origin, they face a special situation. On one hand, they must often leave their familiar surroundings abruptly, and without a guardian. Furthermore, dramatic events may occur in the context of the flight, which are particularly dramatic for minors, who are not fully matured and have age-related needs as well. These aspects can lead to traumatization, which may present itself in many different ways. Therefore, different Social Work - approaches have to be considered. The bachelor thesis at hand aims to describe the scope of possible action and the mandate of Social Work in this context. Suitable methods are outlined, and their respective benefits for unaccompanied minors are explored.
