Project brief:

The project focused on the transfer of experience in the field of work with socially excluded families in the area of substance abuse prevention, especially among children and adolescents. As part of the project, a team of staff from the Center for Addictology undertook a short-term internship at two prestigious Norwegian organizations operating in the field (Phoenix Haga and Fossumkollektivet).

Traineeships were focused on the style of work these organizations provide for minors and young people and their families. The aim of the project is to gain knowledge about the program and the system of early intervention in families at risk, to enable the transfer of know-how in the field of primary prevention and early intervention from Norway to the conditions of the Czech Republic and to develop mutual cooperation between Czech and Norwegian organizations operating in this area.

The General Teaching Hospital accounts for 11.27% of the budget by co-financing.
