Taking into consideration the significant changes that have occurred in the socio-political and economic development of Bulgaria after 1989, the author offers to our attention a monograph on the subject of social integrationof discharged military servicemen in Bulgaria. The monograph analyzes the role of social policy in the economic development, the theoretical foundations of social programming and its effectiveness. The author presents in detail the foreign experience in regulating the social development and makes an attempt to analyze the effectiveness of social programming in the system of social protection of the population in Bulgaria.

The main part of the research is related to the trimmer, socialization-upbringing-identity as a basis of social adaptation. The author presented: socialization and education as a process; socialization of the personality and its identity; social adaptation and its aspects; social adaptation and socialization and adaptation process.

Conducting a theoretical study the author provides practical model of the social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families. He examines the theoretical and methodological foundations of the socio-psychological adaptation and the technology of the process of social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families. Professor Dipl.Eng. Venelin Terziev, Ph.D, D.Sc. makes a profound analysis of the Bulgarian experience in the development of social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families.

One of the contributions of the monograph proposes strategic solutions to increase the efficiency of servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families, by developing an integrated model and a model for social and psychological support and a version of a competency model.

 

Understanding the depth and importance of the problem, the author based on research and analysis of social programming and social programs, poses as a dissertation thesis the development of a reliable and applicable model of a national strategy or a national program for successful social adaptation of discharged from the army servicemen and the members of their families. He examines traditional and specific approaches and models in order to execute this process in the most effective and efficient manner and also to find appropriate methods for evaluating its effectiveness- economic, social, etc.

The author achieves the aim of his research as a result of creating and verifying a theory of effective social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families - a theory, which is to serve as a basis for the practical implementation of a complex model of social adaptation of the studied population category, in which models for social-psychological and social-pedagogical adaptation will be adapted; to develop and justify a competence model for increasing the efficiency of the process of adaptation in a dynamic social environment.

Creating a competence model for increasing the efficiency of the social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service, the author provides an opportunity to people at high risk of social exclusion (such as servicemen discharged from military service) by improving their basic skills and thus using lifelong learning to build a path to a sustainable income and a meaningful life.

The direct beneficiaries of the model are generally these servicemen discharged from military service and the members of their families. The results of the project are indirectly beneficial to the providers of adult education (centers for adult education, service training, initial and continuing vocational training, trainers, teachers and managers of educational institutions) and all institutions related to the provision of social services, services related to the implementation of recruitment, etc.

The main result of the application of this model is the establishment of a specific methodology and didactic approaches to training in key competencies. This may include: a set of teaching modules for training in the eight key competencies for lifelong learning, methodology of combined teaching, learning tools for internal and external evaluation of the training, web portals and on-line training, tools for information exchange and results dissemination, news, links, etc. and an innovative method of learning, addressing the issues, common to the majority of the target users. Among these are: insufficient education and learning motivation and lack of cognitive abilities. The methodology enables flexible training so that both young people and adults can start, stop and restart their own career path in order to achieve an improvement in the learning process and their career development.

The created and verified theory of effective social adaptation of servicemen discharged from military service and their families in a dynamic social environment can find application in:

§  goal setting, planning, programming, budgeting, analysis and control of the program „Social adaptation and economic integration of the military personnel discharged from the armed forces in civil society”;

§ development, approvaland updating of departmental regulations relating to the rationalization of management decisions with regard to the social adaptation of servicemen discharged from the BA and their families;

§ development of sufficiently complete and real models for effective social adaptation of servicemen and their families;

§ development and improvement of the competence model upon the selection for a free job position as part of the program of social adaptation of servicemen discharged from the army.

The research results can be successfully probated in the implementation of a national strategic or policy documents on the social adaptation of servicemen discharged from the army and the members of their families, and the specific developed models can be implemented as separate social projects.
