Guide “Promoting safe and protective environments in SOS Children's Villages in Latin America and the Caribbean” Pepa Horno

A common mistake of focusing on protection work is focus it on the procedure performed with potential victims or those who attack. The key is to generate so-called protection “safe and protective environments”, environments where people can get to develop fully, where they can see their rights respected and are free from any form of violence. In this way, even if a person wants to attack another you can not do so because the environment does not provide for this possibility or opportunity.

Generate these safe and protective environments is relevant to any environment where people live, but it is even more for those environments where children live, and adolescents whose protection is ultimately the responsibility of adults in whose care are and institutions, organizations or entities responsible for managing such an environment. And in the case of persons, adults or children, who are suffering is an essential condition for recovery. Think of a hospital, a home for the elderly, or a protection center. If function in protective environments is the key to achieving the full development of any person, it is even more so when that development is being damaged or when that person is in a particularly vulnerable condition.

Therefore, the generation of safe and protective environments is quality assurance and technical rigor in working with people. The difficult thing is to visualize all the indicators taken into account to define an environment as safe and protective. These indicators define both the initial design of any living environment (centers, hospitals, Offices, community centers, schools, polideportivos, and so on.) as the risk assessment of existing.

This work presented today, Promoting safe and protective environments in SOS Children's Villages Latin America and the Caribbean (Oven, P., 2018), SOS made in Latin America and the Caribbean, includes a system of specific indicators, with a minimum value to be guaranteed and optimum value toward which to work on each indicator. This indicator system has been developed from a model from CI Spirals We have spent some time working. It is structured around four levels: the physical environment, the emotional environment, conscious teams and the role of people living in the environment.

Two versions of the document:

This work is part of a process of making organizational awareness, not individual or a team specifically, but of an entire organization. A process that is as necessary as rare in organizations, entities and institutions working with people, and specifically those working with children, and adolescents in situations of risk or vulnerability.

It was designed to promote the quality of work of the organization through the review of all areas in which your organization works: offices where they live their technical staff, alternative care homes and community centers preventive intervention.

In this process not only analyze environments where SOS Children's Villages works directly with children, and adolescents, but the spaces in communities and internal spaces of the organization, including offices and work teams. For those professionals who do not work in safe and protective environments for them, with leadership positions who can be protective leaders for their teams, they will not be able to generate safely in direct care environments. It is a process of organizational consciousness or cascade works or does not work.

I want to thank on behalf of the entire team Espirales CI confidence that the regional office of SOS Children's Villages in Latin America and the Caribbean has placed in us to accompany them and advise them in this organizational process in recent years. And specifically the contributions that the safety net of the organization in the region, led by Lucia Miranda and Dayan Mora they have been made to this document.

We hope the standardization of this system of indicators help facilitate this process and allow replication in other institutions, institutions and organizations responsible for the care and support of people.
