Catalan term or phrase: medi obert
Very specific usage related to sociology abstract concerning work with at-risk children. I am including all contexts:

És una reflexió entorn de la intervenció socioeducativa en medi obert, realitzada a partir d’una avaluació de projectes dins d’un programa territorial de protecció a la Infància.

L’article analitza alguns dels trets conceptuals del medi obert, accentuant la seva pluralitat i la riquesa com a intervenció socioeducativa en el territori.

Proposa el medi obert com un àmbit unitari de les accions i el treball social en un territori, integrant les diverses metodologies a través d’una tasca coordinada i amb uns criteris comuns.

Obviously, this is a rather important point to understand, and I'd like to be sure I get the terminology right. Looking for CA-EN translators, EN-CA translators, or social work professionals who can help! Thanks much.

agree  Veronica Lambert Hall: I agree. As far as I am aware "open environment" is not a specifically sociological term, but I would say that in your abstract it can be taken at face value. It makes complete sense.

agree  Patrick Bones: Me too. I was going to say "probation", which is what I usually go with, but it doesn't sound like these kids have done anything yet. Veronica's eloquent explanation is enough to convince anyone.
