• How does it feel to be marked by its environment with a “label”?
  • Why do we inevitably confirm by our behavior what we are held for by our environment?
  • To what extent am I a passive or active part of labeling processes, both in private and professional contexts?
  • How can I use the findings of the LABELING THEORY for the benefit of the children?

“… until one morning the young Bella, her housemate, is found murdered. Police, friends, acquaintances, neighbors, colleagues – they all suspect Ashby. Even his wife. What becomes of a person who is unjustly suspected of murder?” (Teaser text to “Bella’s death” by Georges Simenon) “Now begins a cruel process in which Ashby, fixated on the idea of ​​being held for the murderer become more and more into a behavior that confirms the suspicions.” (Jürg Willi in “The Art of Common Growth”)

We will dig into the depths of the dynamics of this kind of social phenomenons in the seminar, learn about their outstanding importance for early childhood education. We reflect on our personal experience and work out the consequences of LABELING THEORY for working in a day care center.
