Journal article citation:
Ljetopis Studijskog Centra Socijalnog Rada, 10(2), 2003, pp.187-195.

The author looks at the situation of under-aged children of disabled family members who, due to insufficient social support and care, have been made the main and sometimes only source of assistance to their parents or family members. Although results of systematic research about the kind of influence such demands and family obligations have had on the quality of life and experience of these children do not exist, practice has confirmed that the community’s deficiencies in caring for its disabled members often bring about the cummulation of various risk and stress factors in the growing and maturing process of disabled persons’ children. The author also highlights the importance of conducting research of this group in order to organise more effective and better established support. [Article in Croatian].

Surviving ethnicity and disability: minority children in public care

Author:
ZAVIRSEK Darja
Journal article citation:
Ljetopis Studijskog Centra Socijalnog Rada, 10(2), 2003, pp.197-210.
Publisher:

The recent child centred perspective in social work theory and practice is driven by the “modernisation of childhood” which stresses the importance of a child as a subject and a citizen with his or her own group rights. At the same time children living in public institutions experience a lack of child’s centred caregiving and a lack of personal visibility. This is especially true for the disabled and ethnic minority children who are most often recipients of public care where a traditional pattern of caregiving is maintained. The author demonstrates that both groups of children experience civic disability while experiencing institutionalisation in residential care. [Article in Croatian].
