Dr. Nevenka Žegarac, from the Faculty of Political Science, University of Belgrade, who, receiving a letter of thanks, said:
“ChildHub is something that is a unique resource for all professionals in our field, we don’t have anything like that and it would be a great pity, that is, we must not allow it to disappear.”
In the second part of this national conference, the results of the research conducted by Marija Nijemčević Popovski, a local researcher, on the topic of Supervision in multidisciplinary teams in Serbia were presented. She presented the findings on the state of the Supervision, what are the opinions of professionals who provide and receive this type of support within their work engagements, ie what are the main challenges and obstacles, and what recommendations did these professionals give to improve this area.
Everyone present agreed on one thing – the ChildHub platform is a resource that is necessary, needed and must continue to live.
