Samenvatting

This research for the University of Applied Science the Hogeschool van Amsterdam is written for the foundation Sjaki Tari Us, a Dutch- Indonesian foundation located on Bali in Indonesia. The foundation is giving education and help to mentally disabled children. Part of the vision from Sjaki Tari Us is that the parents and other parts of the social environment of the children are involved in the development. They have to cooperate with the local staff, in other words the social workers. This cooperation is not going fluently because of various reasons and this can hold back the development of the children. With this research the importance of cooperation is examined. Furthermore the situation in the Netherlands is compared with the situation of social workers working together with the social environment on Bali. The first part of this research is about cooperation and explains the importance of a good and fluent cooperation. Factors of good cooperation are communication and parent participation. Notable is that parent participation in the Netherlands is organized by law which gives parents rights but also obligations in the partnership with social workers. The cooperation on Bali is based on protocols organized by the Dutch board of the foundation. Because the foundation is based in Indonesia on the island Bali, other environmental influences play a role in the cooperation compared to the Netherlands. The main religion, Hinduism has influence on how the parents treat their child but also has effect on how they cooperate with the social workers. Another striking influence is that the rights of parents and disabled children are not protected by Indonesian law. The methods and protocols used in the Netherlands to form cooperation between social workers and parents are based on the Dutch law but schools or institutions are also involving parents in consultative councils. Most methods used for cooperation are to empower and develop the social workers so they are able to cooperate better with the parents. Implementing the most important tools and methods on Bali is important for the foundation because a methodology is giving a social worker normative and theoretical back up that can justify the way they act and help the target group. If methods or tools are useful for the foundation on Bali, the difficulties in implementing have to be considered. Being aware of differences in communication is thereby essential. Intercultural communication in a Dutch- Indonesian foundation can lead rapidly to misunderstandings.
