Impact research and sustainability. Mainspring of quality.

If you are one of those people, who would like to know more about the effects of their work, we have something in common!

It is not enough for us either, to “simply” provide support. We continuously evaluate the effectiveness of our concepts and question what has been tried and tested.

This approach is expedient, for “Doubt is the beginning of science. Whoever does not doubt anything, does not examine. Whoever does not examine, does not discover. Whoever does not discover, is blind and remains blind (Chardin, 1881- 1955)”.

Quality by method.

In the face of complex cases and scarce public resources in casework it is fundamental, to provide effective help right from the start.

To reach this goal, “Projekt PETRA” has developed a research strategy, which generates the necessary knowledge empirically.

In a multi-modal approach case-related data is aggregated from admission up to three years after completion of the support and evaluated according to strict scientific criteria.

The goal is: recording of impact indicators as well as the consistent implementation of the knowledge gained in professional practice.

Using knowledge. Achieving goals.

Based on data analyses “Projekt PETRA” is drawing conclusions for optimizing support processes.

This way it can be proven, that pedagogical-therapeutic support is much more sustainable than support without therapeutic care. We have also succeeded in developing a carefully graded aftercare program that enables most of our addressees to manage their live without further support.

Systematic practical research also generates important secondary effects. Due to the low rate of connection-support of “Projekt PETRA” the statutory agencies for example achieve considerable savings in follow-up costs.
