Darko MaverDrug Use and Drug Addiction in Slovenia: Current Position and Future Perspectives - Pg. 136
Available data on the development of drug use and drug addiction to date are incomplete, but show that drug use in Slovenia, especially among young people, has been gradually increasing since 1967, yet has not exceeded the critical limit. It is mainly the use of soft drugs such as hashish, marijuana, analgesics and polytoxicomania that predominate in addicts. The current economic situation and the decline in living standards are also the reasons why expensive and dangerous drugs (heroin, cocaine) have not appeared on our market on a large scale. On the other hand, given the projected development of our company by the year 2000, we are identifying some factors that do not allow excessive optimism. People will be increasingly under pressure from stress, and this, in the absence of other options for relaxation, can lead to greater use and greater drug addiction.
Maja Vojnovič, Matjaž Hanžek, Vojka ŽerovnikSocial Development Planning within Organizations of Associated Labour - Pg. 162
In the article, the authors first briefly present the basic theoretical methodological and socio-political starting points relevant to the approach to social planning. The reader is also briefly introduced to the existing models of planning in modern society and to the basic characteristics of the model of self-governing social planning. At the same time, they critically note that the development of a planning methodology, which would be an appropriate basis for political agreement and communication, is far from a professionally effective task. In an attempt to deconstruct the planning methodology and concretize it for the purposes of preparing a plan in OAL, the authors place special emphasis on the organization of planning as a fairly broad and complicated regulation of relations between people, their tasks, rights and obligations and conceptualization of "social" in the context of planning.
Vida MiloševičOptions for Providing Adequate Living Conditions in Elderliness - Pg. 192
In the analysis, the author first discusses the aging population and social measures to ensure adequate living conditions in old age, and then the social security of the elderly in a broader sense, namely: livelihood (pension and disability protection of workers and farmers and social assistance), housing, health care, social welfare, education and culture, sports and recreation. In a special chapter, she presents the situation in the field of retirement home care in our republic. She pays special attention to the issue of self-government, the elderly and the role of local communities in organizing various forms of activities for the elderly. The analysis draws attention to the fact that in the current situation the social security of more than half of our retirees is endangered, so effective measures are needed in this area, especially the need to systematically develop various forms of assistance and care for the elderly.

Andreja Kavar VidmarIdentifying Social Needs - Pg. 70
Based on an article describing the identification of needs for sheltered housing for elderly in the UK, Bradshaw’s taxonomy of social needs is presented. Bradshaw divides social needs into four types: expressed need (people express the need through application, etc.), felt need (determined by asking the population), normative need (defined by experts) and comparative need (determined by studying the characteristics of the population in receipt of service). The taxonomy is illustrated with examples from our reality. The shortcomings of the model are indicated and the possible applicability for determining social needs in our country is indicated.
Marija Radež, Blaž MesecThe Material Position of the Spouses Between and After the Divorce - Pg. 79
The results of the research are presented on a systematic 20% sample of 68 married couples, selected from a population of 350 couples divorced in the municipality of Novo mesto between 1970 and 1983 and still monitored by the Center for Social Work (CSW). Distributions on material situation indicators show that after divorce among women, the number of those living in social housing increases; the number of housing right holders and the number of employed women also increase, so that the composite index of material position of women after divorce is on average higher than that of their former partners. Men, on the other hand, have a higher income, more cars and real estate. After divorce, women on average improve their material base, and the male population is divided into those who decline and those who progress in their material position. These findings apply to the population monitored by the CSW and cannot be generalized to the entire divorced population.

The record is based on the study "Analysis, assessment and guidelines of institutional education of children and minors with behavioral and personality disorders in SR Slovenia." The study was prepared by a working group of the Institute of Criminology at the Faculty of Law in Ljubljana. The first part of the record presents the study, its origins and the framework contents in it, while the second part provides suggestions and views on how to eliminate the shortcomings and improve the current situation. The proposals are presented in the following chapters: What kind of institutions do we need or what kind of institutions should be advocated for in the future; Diagnostic and triage problems; Training and targeted education; Alternatives to institutional education; Training of staff to work with dissocial adolescents; The need to establish a republican advisory supervisory body; and - Research and innovation.
Vida MiloševičEducation of Social Workers - Pg. 18
The education of social workers is increasingly diversified and diverse in the world. Differences exist according to the basic orientations of social work, methods of work and levels of education. In Europe, three-year colleges for social workers not involved in universities predominate. In Yugoslavia, the long-term efforts of social workers and some colleges to introduce higher education programs for social work are only slowly being realized. For more than ten years, various transitional solutions have been sought, which may even hinder the further development of social worker education. There are currently models of higher education for social workers in Serbia and Croatia. In Slovenia, despite the recognized need for higher education for social workers, it is planned only in 1990.
