Accommodation of transgender people in housing facilities of social services
Kreisslová, Adéla ; Cidlinská, Kateřina (advisor) ; Formánková, Lenka (referee)
This bachelor's thesis studies how transgender people are accommodated in housing facilities of social services. The thesis aims to find out in which ways housing facilities of social services meet and in which ways do not meet the needs of transgender people in the process of accommodation. As the number of people who openly identify as transgender continues to increase, it is a realistic assumption that the number of openly transgender users of residential social services will be increasing as well. It is therefore necessary to consider the possibilities and ways in which the provision of residential services can be adapted to meet the client's needs without compromising their identity. At present, users of most housing facilities of social services are accommodated based on the gender indicated on their identity cards. However, this type of accommodation may not be in line with the client's perception of self and may therefore represent a barrier to meeting their needs. This is also problematic given that the use of these services may be a response to leaving an environment that was hostile to transgender people. In this thesis, I focus on the experiences of transgender people who have been clients of residential social services. The theoretical part introduces fundamental concepts related to...

A resocialization programme for drivers who have committed a crime behind the wheel: a subjective evaluation of the programme by its graduates
Portová, Leona ; Cidlinská, Kateřina (advisor) ; Špejra, Michal (referee)
(in English): The thesis is focused on a resocialization programme for drivers implemented by a Programme Center under Probation and Mediation Service. The programme is intended for persons who have committed criminal offences in traffic. It is a relatively new institution, both in the field of social work and criminal justice. For this reason, the subjective evaluation of the programme by its graduates, based on semi-structured interviews, became the key for this thesis. The research questions focused on participants' opinions and attitudes towards the programme, suggested changes and the benefits to themselves. The results of the research show a difference in attitudes at the moment of entering and during the programme, while also demonstrating the key role of the group format of the programme. The thesis demonstrated that the programme is at least partially fulfilling its ambition to change participants' attitudes towards risky behaviour and traffic behaviour, suggesting the potential of the programme to enhance prevention and protect society from re-offending. In particular, the programme would benefit in the future from expanding its participants (clientele) and conducting a recidivism survey of end- users of the programme.

Specifically, the thesis will map how are used the biography and the data obtained through the client biography model. The aim will be achieved through a qualitative study, which will consist of two main parts: 1) semi-structured interviews with social workers in residential facilities for the elderly; 2) analysis of individual care plans and client biographies. The analysis shows that the Psychobiographical Model of Care is reflected in all areas of care. Its use opens up new possibilities for the care provided, building on the client's abilities and possibilities based on his/her life story. However, this potential relies primarily on a proactive approach by staff to use the model. In practice, there are also links between the Psychobiographical Model and palliative care. Through more targeted activation, clients can regain a sense of purpose in their lives. The research findings also suggest...
