MARTHALER, Thomas. Social pedagogy as pedagogy in social work? The case of child protection. In Proceedings of the 4th.Congresso Internacional de Pedagogia Social Congresso Internacional de Pedagogia Social, 2012, São Paulo (SP, Brazil) [online]. 2012 [cited 18 May 2024]. Available from: <http://www.proceedings.scielo.br/scielo.php?script=sci_arttext&pid=MSC0000000092012000200035&lng=en&nrm=iso> .

The proposed presentation will treat the questions of the possible meaning of social pedagogy in the context of child protection as a context which is dominated by logics of control and constraints on the one hand and of the possible links to historical and contemporary approaches to a theory of social pedagogy on the other. With reference to empirical research in this field the specific social-pedagogical challenges, needs and possibilities are discussed. The discussion, enlightened by the dichotomy of system and life-world as adapted by German theories of Social Work especially in the 1980s, reveals typical shortcomings of social-pedagogical approaches in organizational contexts. They are characterized as the application of system solutions to life-world problems. These life-world problems constitute the social-pedagogical dilemma in modern societies, and early theoreticians tried to propose adequate life-world solutions to them. In a concluding chapter further 'life-world sensitive' propositions are made for the Brazilian situation, looking at given structures such as the Conselhos in youth welfare as well as new approaches in research and theory.
