In Practical Social Pedagogy, Jan Storø shows the reader how the theories and practices of social pedagogy work together. He combines social pedagogy theories, psychology, sociology, and social work with a social constructionist perspective to help practitioners guide children and young people to cope better with the challenges they face as they grow up. Using many practical examples, he emphasizes the crucial meeting between practitioner and client as the space where the actualities of practice are determined.
Trude Løkholm, University College of Harstad, Norway
"In this book, the reader is presented with a realistic, practice-related picture of modern social pedagogy. Through pointing out the various possibilities and different paths to follow in working with children and families within this tradition, the author is at all times very clear about his own position and views."
