Summary Unsere sozialen Interaktionen werden von komplexen biopsychischen Prozessen angetrieben, die dadurch verkompliziert werden, dass der Mensch ein Individuum ist und gleichzeitig Mitglied eines oder mehrerer sozialer Systeme, wie bspw. der Schule. Dieses Buch trägt dazu bei, die sozialen Mechanismen des "Bedürfnisses nach Zugehörigkeit" bei Schüler*innen in Schulkontexten zu erklären. Der theoretische Rahmen basiert auf einem Verständnis von Bedürfnissen als kognitive Mechanismen neuronaler Prozesse, die menschliches Verhalten und Körperwerte regulieren. Die Feldforschung wurde in zwei Sekundarschulen in Österreich und Australien durchgeführt. Handlungsleitlinien, die Schüler*innen dabei helfen sollen, sich zugehörig zu fühlen, werden von den Ergebnissen abgeleitet
