Czech alcohol policy and alcohol's impact on families
Holá, Martina ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Angelovská, Olga (referee)
This master thesis focuses on the impact of alcohol on families if one of the parents is addicted looking through the lens of the theoretical concept of AHTO. To fulfil the research goal I chose a literature review then followed up qualitative interviews with experts from the ranks of social and health services workers and OSPOD. According to the interviewed experts, forms of AHTO appear in families as follows - relationship problems, psychological damage (distrust, feeling helpless, low self-confidence, guilt, shame, rejection or not acknowledging the seriousness of the situation), financial difficulties, domestic violence. Then, in the case of children, mental harm, attention deficit disorders, parentification, worsened academic results, relationship problems, parental or alcohol rejection. Experts most often encounter solutions strategies such as control, negotiation or playing on emotions, threats, trying to help, trying to solve the situation of an addict, downplaying the situation, hiding the situation, rejecting a person. Experts recommend other evidence-based strategies for family members to deal with the situation and what I can do, not make false promises, reject alcohol but not a person, set boundaries and barriers, understanding addiction as a disease, offering help to an addict.

The image of alcohol in the Czech TV as a public service broadcaster
Burdová, Karolína ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Kotherová, Zuzana (referee)
This diploma thesis deals with the media representation of alcohol and its excessive consumption on Czech Television as a public service broadcaster. It also focuses on ways to regulate alcohol in the form of behavioural nudges which can be used both within alcohol policy of the Czech Republic in general and the broadcasting of Czech Television. The thesis identifies not only possibilities of using the nudge theory, which can have a beneficial effect on human decision making, but also interprets media framing used for representation of alcohol on Czech Television. Alcohol is portrayed within Czech Television programmes as well as within TV commercials, therefore a case study dealing with alcohol advertising broadcasted on Czech Television was added to the analysis. The analytical part of the thesis was created on the basis of a qualitative framing analysis and with the aid of desk research I revealed the possibilities of nudging both in alcohol policy and in the Czech Television broadcasting. Above all, this thesis emphasises the fact that the framing process has a significant position in human decision making, and that is why it's necessary to pay adequate attention to this process in alcohol policy making.
Comparison of social policy in relation to informal caregivers of the elderly in the Czech and Slovak Republics
Rizikyová, Tímea ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Čampulková, Jitka (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the comparison of social policies in relation to informal caregivers of seniors in two countries - the Czech and Slovak Republics. At the beginning, the author brings a current view of the aging population, with which the demand for long- term care is constantly increasing. The author further focuses mainly on the description and subsequent comparison of policy design in relation to family carers in both republics, while looking at the whole issue by applying the theoretical concept of social constructions of target populations. The author identified and placed great emphasis on two target populations, namely the informal carers and the seniors who are dependent on care. Both target populations have a certain political power and social construct in the compared countries, which further influences their position in society. With the help of expert interviews, the author also identifies several problem areas that informal carers struggle with on the basis of the current setting of social policies in both countries.
Assisted reproduction from the perspective of the target groups
Lazárková, Gabriela ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Hejzlarová, Eva (referee)
This diploma thesis aims to describe policy design of assisted human reproduction in the Czech Republic in the frame of two examined groups: 1) women undergoing this procedure, 2) service providers. The goals are also to identify the policy framework of assisted human reproduction in the political environment. The theory background is supported by the theory of social construction of the target audience written by the authors Ingram and Schneider and the analysis of the framework by Rein and Schon. The legislation of assisted human reproduction is covered mostly in the period of 2011 - 2021. The analytical part of this work is based on systematic expert surveys, questionnaire surveys and analysis of stenographic records. The benefits and drawbacks arising from the legislations, political power and social constructions in relation to both examined groups are formulated in the paper's results. Furthermore, two competing policy frameworks are identified during the debate of amendments to the Act on Specific health Services and the Act on Public Health Insurance.
Regional conceptions of family policies through the theory of social construction of target populations
Braun, Vojtěch ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Jelínková, Marie (referee)
This work focuses on concepts of family policy on a regional level. Regions are the connecting link between the county level and the state level and have numerous instruments to support families or other social groups within their territory. While on the county level family policy doesn't get much attention, mostly due to lower personal, administrative or financial capacity, regions prepare detailed and wide concepts of family and social policy, in which they outline goals and aspirations, as well as instruments and ways in which to achieve them during a predetermined period. These instruments aim at different target populations. This work will be primarily focusing on the research of these target populations, which will then be analysed through the theory of social constructions of target populations, which was initially developed in 1993 by professors Anne Schneider and Helen Ingram. This theory dwells deeper when it comes to definitions of target populations and divides populations according to their definition, which can be positive or negative, and by their political power, which can be strong or weak. Looking at the numbers of instruments, their character and searching for a reason for this state of affairs, as well as applying the theory of social constructions of target populations, will lead to the...
Trans people as a target population of Czech public policy
Lacinová, Alexandra ; Hejzlarová, Eva (advisor) ; Dobiášová, Karolína (referee)
The master thesis is focused on policy design identification in relation to trans people in the Czech Republic in the time period 2012 - 2020. The work uses the theory of Social Construction of Target Population (TSKCP) written by authors Schneider and Ingram. The goal of this paper is to describe three main elements of TSKCP: content of public policy, political power of the target population and its social construction. Based on this, the paper aims to classify the target group of trans people according to the typology of the theory used. For the purpose of this paper, five interviews with respondents were conducted and especially statements of experts as well as analysis of public policy documents are the key parts for answering the research question. Next, analysis of more than seventy online articles related to the examined population within the given time frame was conducted, thanks to which the question of how trans people are constructed in the Czech internet media was answered. There were two main kategories as an outcome of this analysis, including a more detailed explanation. The work also brings in its results the identification of benefits and burdens that arise for the examined target population from the legislative setting.
Changes in social construction of the unemployed during COVID - 19 crisis
Schlehrová, Sára-Ráchel ; Dobiášová, Karolína (advisor) ; Tumová, Kateřina (referee)
The bachelor's thesis Changes in social construction of the unemployed during COVID- 19 crisis addresses the shift in public opinion about the target population of unemployed which occurred in the first half of 2020. The dominant public opinion of unemployed shifted from being considered as people who are reluctant to work, and thus not wanting to participate on the labour market, into almost half of the public thinking the unemployed do not work due to the lack of luck in finding new working position. Sudden transformation such as this can be caused by the direct effect of media or changes in the policy design. Therefore the thesis is set on mapping changes in the framing of the unemployed by the media but also on the transformation of policy design. The thesis is based on quantitative and qualitative analysis of the most read Czech journals (both Internet and newspaper articles) supported by the public policy theory of social construction of target populations (SCTP) introduced by Ingram and Schneider. Thematic analysis and frame analysis are used to describe the changes in the construction and framing of the unemployed as well as to characterize how the elements of policy design (such as tools, justifications or policy goals) have transformed during the chosen period of 2017 to 2020. Keywords...
Women's homelessness: the impact of gender and psychosocial aspects on the availability of help for homeless women
Štrobachová, Tereza ; Vlčková, Kamila (advisor) ; Dobiášová, Karolína (referee)
Women's homelessness is a not very well researched and rather neglected topic in the Czech Republic. However, it requires special attention because the number of homeless women is increasing. This thesis focuses on the impact of gender and psychosocial aspects of female homelessness on the availability of assistance for homeless women. The research objectives will identify the specificities of women's homelessness from the perspective of homelessness policy actors, which will be translated into the availability of assistance for homeless women and the actors' perspectives on the availability of housing, services and healthcare for homeless women. In the empirical part, a qualitative methodology is used, where the research instrument is semi-structured interviews with homelessness policy actors followed by qualitative content analysis using deductive and inductive coding. The research conducted identified the specificities of women's homelessness, the areas in which homeless women are identified and how these factors affect their access to housing, services and healthcare. It also resulted in concrete measures proposed by the actors. A secondary finding from the research is how the issue has been affected by the ongoing pandemic of COVID-19.
Relatives foster care from the point of view of social and legal protection workers of children and foster parents
Kabátová, Zuzana ; Angelovská, Olga (advisor) ; Dobiášová, Karolína (referee)
The topic of the diploma thesis is the issue of foster care performed by the relatives of the child from the point of view of social and legal protection workers of children (OSPOD) and foster parents on the basis of the theory of line workers. The work deals with the confrontation of kinship and professional (mediated by the state) foster care, their positives and negatives, both from the perspective of OSPOD professionals who perform this activity directly and from the perspective of foster parents who are related to children and professional foster parents. The aim of the diploma thesis is to find out whether there is a different approach to kinship and professional foster care both in terms of legal grounding and in terms of the practical side of this institute. The work focuses on finding out the needs of foster parents in the performance of foster care and also the needs of workers involved in the implementation of foster care, both in terms of assessing foster care tools, entrusting the child to foster care, implementation of foster care and eventual termination of this care and their possible differences in professional and family care. At the same time, I focus on the reserves in foster care, both related and professional, but also on barriers to the performance of foster care and its...
