This thesis deals with the retrospective experience of adolescents and young adults with regard to the accompaniment of a childrens assistance. In addition to introductory theoretical insights into the experience of parental separation, respectively the needs of the children and adolescents concerned and an introduction to the instrument of childrens assistance, the empirical part of the thesis offers relevant insights into the subjective experience of the children and adolescents previously accompanied by a childrens assistance. In particular, the focus is on the experience of helpful or obstructive factors, recognizable long-term effects and the resulting opportunities for further development of the existing work concept of the childrens assistance. Thus, the concrete needs of the young people come to the fore and missing or new findings regarding the work of the childrens assistance can be determined. The findings obtained in the course of the research process were collected using twelve guided interviews with six adolescents and young adults between the ages of 15 and 20. Afterwards they were evaluated using qualitative content analysis.
