Abstract

The pedagogist is a social professional with an ancient history that re-emerged in the 20th century after the Sozialpädagogik and other contemporary developments, like other professions that had their scientific foundation in the 19th century and settled socially in the following century. Among the fields in which the pedagogist is called to practice professionally, there are the health and the psyche, in which he can effectively lend his active cooperation at the highest level with medical surgeons, psychiatrists, psychoanalysts and other psychotherapists and with other professionals in the domain. In this paper, the specificity of the pedagogy and the pedagogist is rigorously outlined in order to prevent possible confusion and overlap in professional practice. Some of the physical and mental health problems that can effectively exemplify such professional cooperation are also examined. A brief reflection on health prevention, and medical pedagogy, completes the essay.
