Abstract and Keywords

Every year, secondary schools face large numbers of drop-outs. To approach the inherent social and educational challenges, this two-year study applied a multidisciplinary understanding to the aspect of ‘individual learning’—in particular, on how current and past life experiences affect a young person’s capacity to learn, understand, communicate, and relate. In this study, three different semistructured ‘movement’-oriented interventions were offered to twenty-six ‘difficult’ pupils of an eighth grade at a German Hauptschule, their teachers, and their families. The results of the research project were very promising. All pupils passed their examinations and were able to continue with further education or training.

Keywords: early school leavers, open-dialogue approach, trauma, learning, movement
