    The diploma thesis explores the issue of postinstitutional treatment of young persons who have been in a behaviour modification facility (youth residential program). It starts with a survey of both the characteristics of young persons with emotional and behaviour problems and the causes of their problematic behaviour since the knowledge of such characteristics and causes is instrumental in planning how to help a young person and in selecting methods of work. The thesis also deals with juvenile delinquency given the fact that the phenomenon differs from adult delinquency in several key characteristics, and describes potential manners of providing care to a group of young persons in Slovenia who participated in this study, ranging from the detection of troubled children in primary school to their placement in a behaviour modification facility, which may be a youth home, residential group, education institution, youth detention centre or juvenile prison. The thesis also points out the disregard for an integral treatment of young persons with emotional and behaviour problems since in Slovenia their treatment ends when they leave the institution. By analysing interviews with professional staff who has been working with young persons with emotional and behaviour problems for many years, the thesis reveals a critique of the existing system and points out reasons for an integral treatment, which should also include the segment of postinstitutional treatment and care.
