I have been working at the Department of Social Work of the Faculty of Education of Matej Bel University in Banská Bystrica since 2012. At present, my interest is focused on social work with children and youth, theories and methods of social work, social services and volunteering. In the current period, I focus specifically on the development of innovative methods of social work with children and families, the development of social skills, research methodology. I also focus on the non-profit sector and non-formal education. I deal with these areas through pedagogical, research, project, as well as practical activities. I practically implement work with children and youth, non-formal education of volunteers and research and scientific projects within this topic. The development of my practice in the field of social work was also contributed by practical experience from direct work in organizations working with children and youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, such as. o.z.
