A sociodramatic investigation in one act: social pedagogy in the service of youth
Today, young people experience challenges of different orders to construct their life’s project and in a particular way; young people from lower social class, exposed to situations of vulnerability, has fewer opportunities to reflect on new social roles present in their personal and professional development process. The objectives of this intervention-research in one act is to understand how young people of the “Programa Ação Jovem”, developed in a city in the countryside of São Paulo, deal with some of these challenges. The working method is characterized as a Sociodrama, based on the theoretical and methodological approach of Jacob Levy Moreno (1889-1974), who, as an action-research precursor, considers every sociodramatic act as an investigation. A Social Pedagogy takes place.
