The project arose from the need to provide assistance workers with an example of best practices, as these workers are often burdened with various negative stereotypes. The main output is the creation and use of the monograph (case study) of Anna, a Roma of the Sinti family.

Anna took over care for her relative’s children, who had been sexually abused in the nuclear family. To meet the children’s needs, she used specific strategies, shaped by her ethnicity, gender, upbringing and experience. The monograph can work as a tool to support Roma inclusion and professional work with victims of domestic violence, thereby helping to reduce the incidence of this type of violence. The target group of the book is assistance staff. We organised three workshops on the possibilities and limitations of the use of case studies in social work.

Anna was published in three free formats (pdf, e-pub and printed version). Sustainability of the project is ensured by the low-threshold accessibility of the monograph, downloadable at Google Books, Google Play, and the Project Anna website.
