Abstract

Starting from the consideration that social workers, in doing their work, necessarily meeting Other, the article proposes a reflection on how the trespass in the Other’s life can be considered a good way to help. The principles networking, recognition and participation are the basis of good practices of trespass that promote respectful encounter with the Other and the establishment of effective helping relationships. The authentic encounter among social workers and people in need produces a mutual trespass and contamination of powers between the social workers’ technical knowledge and the experiential knowledge of people. Promoting practices in the name of participation and relatedness can not remain the sole responsibility of the single social worker; Organizations are calling to redefine its boundaries as a result of the opening to the Other, recognizing the contamination of skills as practice for the construction of effective pathways capable of renewing aid in keeping social issues.
