Expert Comment Topics
I have designed a module for education, formed by a team of professors specialised in relevant topics. The methodology of this module for interdisciplinary education was recognised by the UN Women in Bosnia and Herzegovina as a new model for such education designed for professionals working in different sectors. Additional support to professionals involved in the response to domestic violence and violence against women was introduced through designing and implementing the model.

From 2013-2016 I supported the development of standards and capacities of social workers in primary schools in the Republic of Srpska. This was a UNICEF social work program in the education system.
