AnotationThe relationship between the social worker and the client is a key element or integral part in the process of social work interventions. Inequality, which may result in the regulation of emotional experience, fabrication or failure to communicate client information to a worker due to shame or fear of the worker's reaction, is the inherent part of this relationship. Imaginated interactions are an element that helps to create a relationship between the worker and the client and contributes to its quality. It is also an unexplored phenomenon in social work. Therefore the aim of the research is to analyze and describe the nature and the course of the experience of imagined interaction among social workers working with homeless children, their families and their clients between intersessions. The research will be implemented through a qualitative research strategy, namely repeated in-depth interviews with social workers and their clients. The data will be analyzed using the latest approaches to grounded theory. The research will support currently implemented projects in cooperation of FSS OU and ÚVAFM and will be the basis for further cooperation.
