Raising children in the 21st Century is a great challenge and responsibility, and the challenges facing the modern family in the upbringing of children worry as almost every parent. The challenges and dilemmas about education are numerous, and one of them is how to determine the content and time of use of different media in children.
Professionals from Slovenia (psychologists, social workers, social educators) visited the Child and Youth Protection Centre on 15 September 2017. They participate in the project “Minor’s Counsel – the Voice Of the Child” (in Slovenian: “Zagovornik – glas otroka”) led since 2007 by Tone Dolčić from the Office of Slovenian Children’s Advocate. The aim of the project is developing a network of counsels who would represent children in the society in various circumstances when it is important that children’s voice be heard.
Dr sc. Bruna Profaca, the Head of diagnostics and treatment in our Centre, presented our multidisciplinary approach in working with traumatised children, youth and their families, as well as the work of the Centre for the past 15 years.
Ella Selak Bagarić, psychologist, presented the organisation and methods of work in our day hospital. Sara Lulić, psychologist presented the work of the Brave Phone, help line for children and parents.
This was one more opportunity to exchange experience in working with children and youth and continue our cooperation with professionals from Slovenia.
