Description of the case:

The  family had been in the treatment of Social Welfare Centre from 2009.

Boy (6 years old ) was born with out of wedlock parents, father V. (47 year old) and mother I. (38 year old). Parents had ended their relationship  before the son was born. Parents' relationships have been violating almost from the very beginning. The boy is living with his mother from the beggining. Contacts with the father started when boy was two. In 2014. the decision was made about extended meetings of the boy with his father.  Meetings are held regularly.

Relationships between parents are still marked by continuous accusations and manipulation, lack of cooperation, the inability to reach any agreement in relation to the child, frequent conversion and submission of reports to the police and the Social Welfare Centre.

Parents rarely communicate and do not share information about the child; they try to make agreements by e-mail -  without success, often turn to social welfare centres for  accusations.

The father was repeatedly reported for domestic violence (by mother of the boy).

Supervisor: Sanda Lovrić Rupčić, social worker and a licensed supervisor

Learning points: 

1. It is important to give back responsibility towards parents and in that was promote the change in behaviour

2. There was an idea to call the mother weekly in Social service to give feedback about her tasks

3. Also, it would be good to consider options of encouraging father of proceedure to take over custody of the child
