Interconecting attitudes

Attitudes that play an interconnecting role throughout the competence areas

  • Acceptance is meant as the mental attitude or disposition of making peace with a specific behaviour or situation. For example: the acceptance of ambiguity – as a central attitude for youth workers working in non-formal education and especially in international settings – means that youth workers believe in the fact that things can look very different depending on the perspective they take. They might not understand some behaviours and occurrences but can still accept that they are as they are. Beware: accepting does not necessarily mean to agree.
