This chapter explores the social construction of traumatised adolescent girls within mental health services. Mental health research indicates that abuse in adolescence is related to a range of psychiatric problems, including self-harming behaviours and emotional dysregulation. Yet, rather than resulting in a sensitising lens for practitioners to use in a flexible way, this knowledge often leads to a deterministic paradigm, in which young women are viewed as powerless victims, who will experience enduring symptoms. The focus on psychiatric symptoms ignores the socio-political issue of gender inequality that actually produces the problem of abuse against young women. Questioning the ethics of diagnostic classification, I put forward the notion of a politics of indeterminability. I draw on qualitative data from research interviews conducted with women who have experienced trauma and social workers situated in adolescent mental health contexts, adopting a poststructural feminist lens to guide my analysis.

There has been a long debate about the effectiveness of single-sex education. Moreover the question has arisen as to whether young women are still interested in such courses.

This debate is very important, since it appears that female students can perform better in single-sex educational programs (Beraud, 2003). The lack of qualified staff in engineering disciplines for demographic reasons is a real challenge for facing governments and industries in European countries. There is a high risk that innovation will decrease as innovation depends on highly-qualified engineers. In technical and natural science disciplines, in which women are extremely under-represented, singlesex education can be a reform vehicle for modernization (Metz-Göckel, 2005). Interdisciplinary, single-sex education and innovative teaching methods can attract more women into engineering courses (Patko et al., 2009).

This paper presents an overview of single sex educative programmes for women in computer science and technology, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and cognate disciplines over the space of ten years. One important part of these programmes is the single sex educative concept of the “informatica feminale Baden- Württemberg” and “meccanica feminale” summer schools. The summer schools consist of a range of parallel lectures in ET (engineering and technology) with additional courses in soft skills and networking opportunities and study information programmes for female pupils.
