The national policies for child welfare (i.e. for deinstitutionalisation of children from state orphanages) and for the social integration of people with severe mental disorders are the main areas of application of BIHR’s knowledge.
BIHR focused its research and training activity on the field of mental health and social welfare in the form of family counselling and individual psychodynamic counselling through participation in the establishment of new social welfare and mental health services within Bulgaria. Thus BIHR has developed and maintains its ╠aster and its ┬achelor program in Social Work (with individuals and with families).
In relation to the need of training through supervision of clinical practice, as one the main teaching method of the institute a Students’ psycho-social centre (for psychological counselling of families and individuals) is being developed.
