Summary/Abstract: The monograph considers a particular role for form teachers that extends beyond strictly didactic activities and involves their relationships with students, in which teachers support their students and help them handle stressful and difficult situations, and also facilitate decision-making processes. To be able to meet these requirements, teachers should be mindful and know their students' needs, whether educational or related to their lives; they should be ready to act and apply varied and relevant support strategies based on effective communication with children and adolescents, which requires well developed social competencies that can be used to provide support to students. The research findings presented in the monograph (and obtained using various research paradigms) have numerous research “approaches” as their background. These results show the (non)supportive roles performed by form teachers, taking account of their social competencies, as seen from the perspectives of students and teachers alike. The major objective of this discussion is to present the help and support processes developed by a form teacher for students in the school environment. This publication was written for both theorists in the field of education, in such subdisciplines of educational studies as counselling, school pedagogy, pedeutology, and also for practitioners who decide on how the form schooling takes and how it developes, but first and foremost, it was written for all teachers themselves.
