Differently from other professional roles, social educators support people going through problems in their everyday trials and tribulations; they thus pick up on the peculiarities and singularities of the people involved and are at the same time seen by the latter as good people. it is in this concrete dimension that social educators and families can identify a common aim, and starting from this, together define concrete steps that need to be taken for their wellbeing. the social educator's task is therefore on the borderline and often provides them with the opportunity to see things differently form institution sending them into the field: thus, they can become part of the network and encourage empowerment processes, tighter with the child or youth, the parents, the surrounding family and any volunteers involved.
