Rassegna Bibliografica 3/2011 - Community educator

In Rassegna bibliografica 3/2011, the bibliographic review, written by Monica Pedrazza, Associate Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Verona, focuses on the role of educators in child care communities. The author outlines the specific professional role of such educators, as well as the problems due to the lack of national provisions officially establishing this figure. At the same time, she also highlights some specific and typical features, above all the educational relationship, the instrument which the educator uses every day to bring about a change.

The filmography review, written by Fabrizio Colamartino, focuses on figures of institutional educators (social workers, teachers, monks), as well as on very anomalous figures of improvised educators, i.e. people who are forced by fate or necessity to look after children and adolescents in trouble. This analysis highlights that the educational relationship is almost never a one-way relationship, but that it is rather based on mutual exchange – as emphasized in film narration.
