In the following thesis I research the recognized capability of fourth year students of Faculty of Social Work for working with trauma, their knowledge of trauma and the position of their education within social work. I compare opinions of students who studied within the module called Psychosocial support and help and had taken one subject on the topic of trauma with students of other modules, who did not listen to the subject. In the first part of the diploma thesis, I identify the student’s competence acquired within the program of the 1st level of the Faculty of Social Work, conceptualize trauma and present the response to trauma. Furthermore, I position trauma within social work, where I focus on the importance of understanding trauma by the Social Workers and present an approach called TIC, which is based on the understanding of trauma in connection with social work. In the second, empirical, part, based on the qualitative research I came to conclusion, that students do not feel competent working with trauma, due to lack of education about it. The student’s opinion is that trauma is a key part of social work and the education required to work with trauma needs to be acquired at the faculty. Based on the gained results I present suggestions to the Faculty of Social Work on changes regarding this important topic.
