Objective of the Project

The basic aim of the project is establish and verify in practice a method of working with a family, ensuring the child's participation in decision-making processes with immediate effects on the relevant child. The method strives to find an appropriate approach to children, making them involved in surrounding activities and processes. The project will be based on our particular experience from intense work with families, when communication relations have been successfully established with both parties – children and parents – and the intra-family communication has improved substantially. Children will be directly involved in creating the method in a manner adequate to their age. When direct communication with the child is not possible (due to the age), applicant shall work with parents to make them understand the reasons for acting for the benefit of the child and the relevant future effects.
