Neumannová, Petra ; Kodymová, Pavla (advisor) ; Matulayová, Tatiana (referee)
The Diploma Thesis is divided into a theoretical and an empirical part. The theoretical part describes the self-care of social workers with an emphasis on the engagement of educators in social work. In the practical part, a qualitative analysis of the documents, i.e. the curricula of universities and higher professional schools, is performed through the content analysis. The aim is to describe how the educators prepare social workers to perform their professional practice in the context of professional self-care. The conclusions from the research can serve as a basis for identifying current forms of self-care education. The research findings can be useful for educators, professional organisations and associations which can change the content of education and make the concept of self-care relevant. The thesis reveals the themes that should be addressed in future research studies. The thesis also contributes to raising awareness of self-care and contributing to its justification in the professional field.

Goláň, Matěj ; Kodymová, Pavla (advisor) ; Novotná, Alena (referee)
(english) This thesis focuses on the use of the principles and methods of Critical Social Work in the practice of social workers in Czech context. It is a concept based on critical social science and social work approaches. It has been influenced mainly by Marxism, Feminism, Postmodernism or the Critical Theory perspective. It differs from traditional social work in its emphasis on the structural analysis of individual problems, its critique of social inequalities, various forms of domination or oppression, and its efforts to achieve social change. The causes of homelessness not only in the Czech Republic are directly related to the mechanism of global capitalism. Therefore the tradition of Critical Social Work provides an important framework and tools for social work, which is concerned with the solution of homelessness. The aim of my research is to find out how the principles of this concept are applied in Czech context in social work with homeless people. The research is based on thematic analysis of semi-structured interviews with social workers. Within the research, I reconstruct the participants' attitudes towards the causes and solutions to homelessness, the role of social work, the participation of service users or their values.
