Principles of work

Principles of work

1. Social responsibility

  • IAN is aware that its activities affect wider social surroundings and that there is certain feed back from these surroundings.
  • IAN explores undeveloped social responsibility in the community and its consequences and effects on IAN’s beneficiaries and suggests measures for developing of the social responsibility. In this case, IAN uses different kinds of researches and analyzes relevant data from former experiences.

2. Individual responsibility

  • Everybody is morally, professionally and legally responsible for his or her work and for the consequences of that work.
  • Nobody can be excused from personal responsibility; neither can hide behind the colleagues, groups or society.
  • IAN clearly promotes these principles inside its own organization, in its field of work and in the community.

3. Learning organization

  • IAN is organization open for adopting new skills, knowledge and standards on all levels and for learning from its own experience and experiences of others.
  • This learning is at very least based on intuition, mistakes or unsatisfactory defined experiences.
  • IAN expects from its workers to be open for learning, improving and to make their own contribution to the organization and to experts from similar working fields.
  • There is a clear connection between new knowledge that IAN acquired and changes that happen in IAN work.

4. Integrated approach toward social needs

  • Disorder of individual mental stability and disorder of the psychosocial balance are not consequences of one deranged system dimension nor can it be observed as one problem. For example: PTSD is not caused by only one change in man’s surrounding and it does not have only one form.There are many important factors like personal characteristics, reactions in community, legal status, respect of individual rights etc. To get this balance and full recovery it is necessary to affect more factors, which are deranged or present products of that disorder.
  • It is very important to integrate as many of these approaches and actions as possible in one harmonic form.
  • IAN has developed all important functions and services and engaged professionals who can organize and carry out necessary actions and respond to needs. IAN established active and creative cooperation with other organizations and institutions, which can make some positive changes in activities regarding beneficiaries’ needs.
  • IAN succeeded in showing importance and advantage of this approach considering beneficiaries and cost benefits for all interested parties-donors, federal institutions, experts etc.
