Nuances of psychotherapy was the theme of the 2nd Conference of the Croatian Union of Associations for Psychotherapy (SPUH), held in the Panorama Hotel in Zagreb on 19 and 20 October 2013. Prof. dr. sc. Gordana Buljan Flander, director of the Child Protection Center of Zagreb, delivered an invited lecture 'Specificities of children involved in cyber-bullying – implications for treatment', presenting the scientific community with research results on the experience and behaviour of children on the Internet and on the social network Facebook.
Regarding numerous patients’ and experts’ inquiries about opening an institution named similar as ours in Osijek, we inform parents and professional community that Child and Youth Protection Center of Zagreb is not associated with opening Child and Youth Protection Center in Osijek in any way – organizational, by program, neither by supervision.
As we were informed, there is a fund-raising campaign for Child and Youth Protection Center in Osijek, that uses our informational video (Child and Youth Protection Center of Zagreb as example of excellence), filmed by Child Protection Hub SEE. That could lead to false conclusions, so we admonish that we are not included in fund-raising for Center in Osijek in any way. Some media report the false information about our director Gordana Buljan Flander being the supervisor of the project. The director is not associated to this project in any way.
In principle we strongly support every center’s work, as long it promotes children rights, helps children and families and we are open for cooperation and support of any type, if agreed on professional level.
