Tóthová, Tereza ; Hasmanová Marhánková, Jaroslava (advisor) ; Frunc, Ondřej (referee)
The bachelor's thesis deals with the phenomenon of polyamory, an alternative form of experiencing partner relationships in which it is possible and acceptable to love more than one person simultaneously. This thesis examines how women who have experience with polyamory relationships evaluate this experience, what meanings they attribute to their experiences with polyamory and how polyamory influences their construction of self. The thesis also focuses on the influence of social norms and expectations associated with partnership and female sexuality in Western society. Thus, the goal is to describe how women experience polyamory and to explain to what extent society stigmatizes this relationship arrangement and how polyamorists deal with it.

How Children in Foster Homes Perceive Their Life Situation
In my bachelor's thesis, I deal with the issue of children placed in care institutions. The aim of the work is to find out the current view of children from children's homes, whether they feel their social disadvantage with respect to peers in the school environment, on social networks and during social events. The work is divided into the theoretical and practical part. The theoretical part describes the functioning of the children's home, as a facility for institutional education, the area of social disadvantage and its impact on children at risk, and then discusses the approaches of social work related to the issue. In the practical part, a quantitative research strategy using a method of questioning is applied. The collection of research data took place in August to September 2019 using an anonymous questionnaire, to which 112 children, aged 7-18, from 11 children's homes from the South Bohemian, South Moravian and Moravian-Silesian regions responded. After processing and statistical evaluation of the data by the Chi-square method, applying a test of independence in the contingency table, my hypothesis was not confirmed, as only two out of fifteen questions showed a negative relationship between children's stay in the children's home and the behaviour of the environment. As a result, children from children's homes, in most cases, do not subjectively perceive their social disadvantage. This bachelor's thesis can provide an up to date information material for children's home management and it could also be used as a basis for further research on the subjective perception of children being placed in institutional care.
Supported Employment for People with Mental Disorder
This bachelor thesis deals with the subject of supported employment for people with mental disorders. The main aim of this work was to determine the possibility of employment of people who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses. One of the fractional goals was to find out where clients and employees see obstacles in the project of supported employment. The obstacles are mostly found on the side of the employer and are most often caused by fear of the unknown issue. The other goal was to find out how the stigmatization of people with mental disorders affects their position in the open labor market. The bachelor thesis is divided into two parts. In the theoretical section, the thesis focuses on individual mental disorders and also on the topic of social work and employment of people who are mentally ill. The practical section was aimed at answering the three main questions: How the employment of people with mental disorders is supported. How the stigmatization of those people demonstrates itself in the workplace. And what role a job consultant plays in the project of supported employment by clients. The results show that the project of supported employment is very important for people with mental disorders and that their opportunity of finding a job in the open labor market, without professional help of job consultants, is very small. Clients and employees see a great advantage in the financial contribution which is always the main part of these projects. One of the circumstances which complicates the return to work is stigmatization of those people. I questioned the clients and learned that everyone has already encountered stigmatization in their workplaces or even while searching for a job. Supported employment might be seen as one of the components of the fight against the stigmatization of disabled people. The organization will use my bachelor thesis as a feedback but also as a tool for comparison the provision of supported employment services with the other organizations. The thesis might also help the employers to make their decision while considering the employment of mentally disabled people.
