Ivanka Kapun, Blaž MesecAccumulation of Social Welfare Benefits and Typology of Recipients - Pg. 348
An experimental analysis based on a 5% sample of Social Welfare Benefits (SWB) recipients in the municipality of Slovenska Bistrica (N = 2100, n = 100) answers the question (1) whether SWBs accumulate in households and what characteristics of households are associated with the type, number and amount of SWB; (2) whether households receiving SWB differ from each other in such a way that we can speak of different types. Results: half of households receive only one SWB, a further quarter two, so we cannot talk about accumulation. A negative correlation was found between the number of SWB in the household and the amount of SWB and the amount of income. Recipient households are grouped into five different types: households of the sick and disabled (57%), low-income households without other specialties (56%), households of persons without property and relatives (15%), households with irregular relationships and alcoholism ( 8%), single households (6%).
Tone StrojinThe Role of Procedural Law in Providing and Implementing Social Security - Pg. 370
Social security is an abstract concept until it is confirmed in concrete rights, obligations and activities. This social value is realized through social policy in the systems of social insurance, social protection and social welfare. Procedural law has an important role in this, as social security is provided more effectively if the law is more defined and thoroughly enforced. Social law through procedure is a major step towards reciprocity and solidarity among people. The social worker must know the basics of procedural law in order for his approach to resolving social cases to be legally justified.

Srečo DragošOn Some Aspects of Self-management and Motivation in Settlements of Youth Work Brigades - Pg. 269
The author discusses the basic conceptual issues of motivation of young people to take part in youth work actions. YWAs are an option and a space in which one can satisfiy his motives, but they are not themselves a motivational goal, so it is not possible to create a universal concept of YWA. It is up to the participants to form such a community that will be able to meet different needs. The formation of that kind of community, however, also depends on the leadership style. Three unsuccessful concepts of leadership are described, as well as the conditions and possibilities for a more democratic concept.
Dragica ŠeškoFamily Planning in Organization of Associated Labour: What and How (Reflection of Elements of Family Planning in the Work of a Social Worker in Labour Organization Sava Kranj) - Pg. 286
The author derives from the practical work of a social worker in concrete Labour Organization (LO Sava Kranj), looks for elements of family planning in it - singles out some categories of workers in the field of work, draws attention to planning social development in LOs and considers finding concrete ways to implement family planning in LOs. He conceives of family planning in a broader, sociological sense. He notes that very little has been done for him in the reins and defines the role of the reins mainly in terms of informing and raising awareness about family planning and mediation between various social institutions.
