ABSTRACT
The results of increasing number of studies show the importance of cooperation between parents and school. However, in practice such cooperation in general does not provide information about an individual child due to insufficient knowledge of those institutions as regards establishing cooperative relationship. The issue is in particular emphasised by parents of children with emotional, behavioural and social problems/disorders. These parents are due to lack of motivation and dysfunction recognisable as “heavy partners” of the cooperation. Firstly, the paper presents the benefits and obstacles in partnership with parents in general. In the following basic elements of establishing a quality partnership with parents of children with emotional, behavioural and social problems/disorders are underlined. Finally, as a special kind of work a model of group work with these parents as only one possible form of a good work with them is presented.
