The vision of the family functioning in the perspective of young people from dysfunctional environments

Languages of publication
Modern families function differently than families of the previous generations. The set of family functions, the way they are performed changes, and the partnership model of the family is becoming more popular. Especially the young generation considers this model as the most practical and functional, what results from the professional activity of men and women. However, in the circles formed by the dysfunctional families (understood as problematic), so far there is not only paternalism, but also authoritarianism, what implies difficult relations in these families. Supporting young people from such families is dealt with, among others, by the Voluntary Labour Detachments, conducting different types of institutions and forms of action. In the VLD centres there is implemented a program, which constitutes the comprehensive care, educational and preventive impact, while the vocational training is a specific direction. The aim of the interaction is to equip the pupils with the skills and qualification, so they are not at the mercy of poverty, unemployment and pathologies. However, these impacts focus on professional qualifications, while the problem also includes the family functioning of these young people, which are not necessarily corrected by the mere fact of acquiring professional qualifications or even obtaining employment.
