Sažetak
Important aspect of the social welfare system is providing interventions for children and youth with behavioral problems, mainly externalizing behavioral disorders, delinquent behavior and addictions. In Croatia, children and youth can be referred to the social welfare system based on the Social Welfare Act, Family Act or Youth Courts Act, depending on the age, etiology and context of behavioral problems. The main aim of this study was to explore how often social welfare professionals encounter different phenomenological types of behavioral problems and how confident they feel for providing interventions. Special emphasis will be put on gambling related problems among children and youth. Specific aim is to explore possible differences between professionals who are providing interventions in the community and those who are working in an institutional setting. A total of N=123 social welfare system professionals from 18 Croatian counties (age range from 25 to 64 ; Mage=40.78 ; SDage=10.10) participated in this study. With regards to gender distribution, most of the professionals were females (n=109 ; 88.6%). A total of 75.6% professionals are providing community interventions/services, while 24.4% institutional interventions. Results show that professionals working in an institutional setting more frequently work with different behavioral problems, while at the same time they report more doubts in their competencies for providing adequate psychosocial interventions. When it comes to gambling related problems, they find these competencies of great importance, while at the same time, they report not having enough education and specific knowledge in this field. Results will be interpreted in the context of continuous life-learning of psychosocial professionals, as well as possibilities for providing professional supervision and support in the process of working with high-risk youth.
