Zdražilová, Elen ; Novotná, Hana (advisor) ; Presslerová, Pavla (referee)
This work deals with the comparison and in-depth analysis of some psychological aspects (especially problematic of attachment) in children currently living in foster care or adoption with experience in two types of early care - institutional care and foster care for a temporary period during the first year of life. The investigated areas were manifestations of attachment and significant manifestations of behavior, experience and relationality in these children. The aim of the work was to compare the effect of both forms of care on the psyche of the child and the deeper connections between the observed phenomena. The research was conducted in the form of qualitative semi-structured interviews with foster parents or adopters of the children under investigation. The results of the research show that investigated children from the temporary foster care, despite the often unsatisfactory quality of care provided, have more favorable manifestations in most of the investigated areas than children from institutional care, and they retain the ability to establish an intimate relationship with the caregiver. However, children show higher levels of anxiety and uncertainty. The investigated children from institutional care showed signs of impaired emotional attachment and other difficulties in behavior and in...
The Issue of Foster Care from the Perspective of Foster Parents and Accompanying Workers
The bachelor thesis deals with the issue of foster family care from the perspective of foster parents and the accompanying worker. The aim of the thesis was to find out what are the positives and negatives of cooperation between foster parents and accompanying organizations and to describe the experience of cooperation between accompanying workers and foster parents. The bachelor thesis has two parts. The theoretical part explains the basic concepts related to foster family care and its forms with emphasis on foster care. Family, its functions and types of families are defined, the concept of attachment, social and legal protection of children is explained. A relatively large space is devoted to foster care, its types and the process of mediation of FC. The last chapter covers the accompanying organisations for foster families, accompanying workers and the services provided by each organisation. In the practical part, qualitative research was conducted, using a semi-structured interview technique with foster parents and accompanying workers. Subsequently, the interviews are processed according to each communication partner. The research shows that the cooperation of foster parents with the AO is evaluated positively, a big role is played by the person of the accompanying worker, especially his personal qualities, the way of working and the overall approach and treatment with the family, because it is, together with the services provided, a decisive factor for the selection of the AO. In the conclusion of the thesis my main findings and the results I have achieved are summarized. I think that this thesis could be considered as a useful resource or information material that could serve future foster carers, accompanying workers as well as students in the field of social work. It could also be beneficial in improving awareness of foster care and accompanying organisations.

The Limits of Social Work at the Authority for Social and Legal Protection of Children
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to identify the limits of social work at the authority for social and legal protection of children followed up by description of various ways of coping up with these limitations. In order to achieve my set goal, I have made five interviews with people that work at the authority for social and legal protection of children. In terms of anonymity I decided to not state the place where I have made those interviews. Even though these social workers have methodology and are limited by legislation, there is a lot of ways to solve and cope with the limits, which are identified by the research part of this bachelor thesis. Income of this whole thesis can be getting whole new point of view or realizing that there are other options that can be brought to bear. This mentioned income could be proved useful either for informants that I made interviews with or any other professional in the same branch. On top of that I think that it can be even more interesting, seeing different approach from different department and potentially adjust the needed matter. Another fact, that is proving the option to help people, which are in this branch is the fact that I don't rely on numbers or statistics but human side of this job, on foundation which I have gotten by interview with a person that does the job same as a professional that can use this thesis to his advantage.
