The project aims to determine the current number of social workers in primary schools, in educational counselling establishments, and in selected medical institutions. The contents of the activities of these social workers was investigated as well. Special attention was paid to the extent of direct individual social work with clients and to the inter- and multi-disciplinary cooperation as well. The resulting study captures the scope and specifics of the implementation of the social work in these environments. Part of the output are empirically-based recommendations in relation to possible institutionalisation of school social work and in relation to the further development of social work in health care facilities. In this project a mixed method research design was utilised. The results enable negotiations of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs with the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Health related to the improvement of legislative conditions for the pursuit of social work in education and in health care settings.
