(Now what?)
Šťastná, Kateřina ; Chamonikolasová, Kaliopi (referee) ; Gabriel, Michal (advisor)
The topic of the bachelor thesis is touch. The work builds on the fascination with touch, analyzes how different contents can be associated with a gesture that symbolizes something very subtle, fleeting and even fleeting, but at the same time can elicit a very intense and calmly long-lasting response. The output of the bachelor's thesis is a figural sculpture, the prototype of which is the author herself at the age of ten. By depicting a girl's body at an age when it is physically beginning to transform into a woman's body, I ephasizis the touch in its inconsistency, perhaps subtly uncertain the audience and raise questions focused on what the touch means to us.

Title: Self-harm in children Abstract This thesis deals with the topic of self-injury of adolescents. Its goal is to analyze the adolescents' view of self-injury, how the youth themselves define self-injury and what they perceive to be self-injurious behavior. The work is divided into two core parts. The first section focuses on the definition of the self-injury and reviews both current Czech and international literature. Particular attention is devoted to the inconsistent terminology, definitions and presentation of the recent classification system of self- injury. The second part is devoted to the research of explorative character. The data have been collected through a survey using anonymous self report questionnaire from 73 pupils between the ages of 13-15 and they were analysed using categorization and the method of factor and cluster analysis. Factor analysis extracted ten factors which served as the meaningful units and can be interpreted as adolescents' viewpoints of self- injury.

The objective of the thesis was to analyze the novel of Robert Musil "The Confusions of Young Törless" in context of behaviour models and the role of sensuality in the development of adolescent personality from the viewpoint of rational reasoning of own thinking processes. The analysis stresses the importance of the motive of young man's solitude, furthermore the motive of violence, the role of sensual cognition in adolescence as well as the role of these factors during determination of preferred relationships that might, however, come into contrast with the contemporary taboos and become "forbidden". "The Confusions" of the main character may so be structured and interpreted on several levels.

The first chapter of the theoretical part explains the origins of special education, its development and benefits, its historical stages, as well as behavioral disorders in general. The second chapter focuses on behavioral disorders in childhood and adolescence, their classification, causes, diagnostic criteria, prevention and remedies. The third chapter discusses values and value orientation, their classification, organisation and division. It also includes attitudes, persuasion and preferences of values in adolescents.
