University lead collaborative interventions in a school with high school dropouts: school based community work

Increasing number of practitioners recognize the importance of viewing families and schools as open systems in constant interrelationship with each other. Family and school are the most influential systems affecting an individual’s development. While securely attached children are able to explore the world more freely and feel the constant support of their parents when they need it, insecure children are less autonomous and more likely to have problems at school. Whether the school and the family agree on what causes the problem, they tend to be united in recognizing the problem of the child. The project presented in this paper is led by Maltepe University Research and Application Centre for Street Involved Children (SOYAÇ) in partnership with the district education directorate, the district health directorate and the district social services directorate. The project aims to facilitate communication and ensure collaboration between school, staff and family members for the development of trust between them that is essential for the child to feel safe. The project has been carried out in a school with high school dropouts in one of the most deprived neighbourhood of Istanbul where the parents expect the children to work on the streets. Our intervention aims to bring the family and school systems together as part of a therapeutic strategy to support children in school. An ongoing school-based intervention has helped school staff develop skills to contain the problem in the school. The relationship between family and school systems and the implications for therapeutic interventions will be discussed in the framework of socioemotional learning with a systemic perspective.
