Article “Defining consciousness” by Pepa Horno for the initiative “Renewing from within”

One of the pillars of the CI Spirals philosophy is the generation of networks. Networking makes you grow as a professional and as a person. But then there are networks and networks. From time to time you get the gift of being in a work group with professionals whom you often feel are better than you., professionals who challenge you, they drive you, urge you. Over the years I have learned that they not only have to be professionals who I admire for their professional level. They have to be people who I admire for their human qualities, its warmth, his honesty and something even rarer: for their ability to be generous with their time and knowledge. How difficult it is to find professionals who share what they do and how they do it, that they understand that sharing as we understand it in CI Spirals, as our way of bringing back to life as much as we have received.

The group of professionals “Renewing from within” is included among this group of professionals, those that make me a better person and a better professional. Because then we started talking and, like nothing, you end up committing to a little madness, nothing more and nothing less, to try to define what it is “consciousness”. That word mantra that has become the cornerstone of our professional intervention, but also from my look at the human being and his possibility of change from freedom.

So here I share the link to the article that has resulted from that challenge. It is called “Defining consciousness”. I have tried to develop the indicators that I use to differentiate a look, a conscious intervention in the educational role, foster or care. Indicators that can also be used in a process of improvement of professional quality and organizational change.

I hope I don't come off too badly off the result. And above all, as always, I hope it can be useful to you.

Article “We accompany with the person that we are”, F. Javier Romeo, for the initiative “Renewing from within”

Portada del artículo "Acompañamos con la persona que somos" de F. Javier RomeoThe pandemic has brought us many difficult things, and I wish it hadn't happened. And even so we can use their symbols to have a greater awareness about our way of being with children, and adolescents who have suffered much, as is the case with those who live with protection measures.

The initiative “Renewing from within”, from which we already talked about its launch in May 2021, aims to offer some ideas to continue reflecting on the protection system in Spain (and can also be used for many other places). My contribution this month is article “We accompany with the person that we are”, in which I offer a series of analogies between measures against COVID-19 and the awareness we need when dealing with children, girls and adolescents with protection measures. It is aimed at professionals and families of all kinds (originally, cozy, adoptivas…).

You can read the article in the blog of “Renewing from within”, from where you can also download it in PDF.

And I would love to know if those metaphors serve you, or how would you raise them from your point of view. I will read you carefully.

“Metaphors for consciousness”, new book by Pepa Horno and presentation video

Every new book is a gift, the end of a project that lasts many months. Like a dream that, taking shape, becomes real. Today I am lucky to be able to introduce you Metaphors for consciousness, book me number 13. It's a good number to make a spiral. Because this book is mine like the previous ones, but at the same time it's different.

Metaphors for consciousness collects the images that I use the most in training and therapy. They are images that I shaped throughout my professional career, in an attempt to give “lifetime” and make the technical concepts of psychology understandable. This book is a good example that it is the way of doing things that marks the effectiveness of what we do as professionals. It is not so much the “what”. It is mostly the “how come”. This book contains many hours searching “how come” accurate.

They are metaphors that I have been able to verify over the years that help people to make their “building” interior (preview of one of the metaphors), to bring awareness to their life story and understand how they have come to be who they are. Pictures that help them see their “boy” the “girl” interior, to take care of it, pet or cradle him.

How I write on the back cover:

“This book is written for anyone who wants to ask questions, look in, raise awareness. The consciousness that allows us to understand our personal history and, From there, be free and have peace. That peace that comes when we can understand and order. When can we let go. When we can honor”. (Download the presentation brochure).

It is not a technical book, but yes it is. It is not a poetic book, but so is. It is narration and illustration with the wonderful images that Zaida escobar (see Zaida Escobar's account on Instagram) has created for each of the metaphors, of the texts. Each metaphor is narrated in two languages: a poetic one that anyone can read and with hardly any technical terms; and other, the visual and soul, through the illustrations that accompany each text and give it life and depth. Thanks from my heart, Zaida, for giving these pages another life.

Thanks also to the publisher Desclée De Brouwer that, again, bet again for my work.

I really believe that this book deserves to be gifted. That's why i wrote it. So that those images reach beyond my query, of my lectures… even all those who want to use them to look inside or to accompany others in that process of conscious gazing.

I just hope you like it, that excites you like me, serve them. Whatever is, it will be OK.

Manual “Accompanying the wounds of the soul. Trauma in childhood and adolescence” F. Javier Romeo

Children, and adolescents who go through the protection system have been very complicated situations, While often marks show of trauma. Fully understand the trauma, learn to identify and act protectively are professional responsibilities in any organization working on protection. So it has been an honor for me to have written this manual, Accompanying the wounds of the soul. Trauma in childhood and adolescence, which is published in the framework of a new project with SOS Children's Villages through its Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean.

Two versions of the document:

This manual covers the basic points are collected to consider regarding four aspects:

  • The conceptualization of trauma, from the basics to current theories, with different types of trauma contemplated and the relationship between trauma and link. There is also a reflection on how the intervention own protection (the entry into the family, the removal of children, and adolescents in their homes…) It can be traumatic if performed improperly.
  • The identification of trauma from indicators, with special attention to dissociation (which it is a topic of great interest in formations, and on which there is often little awareness). Addition, is discussed in more detail the influence of the trauma in especially difficult to manage demonstrations: and behaviors aggressiveness result of sexual abuse.
  • The intervention understood holistically:
    • The detection, which can be made from any field, to derive professional specialists who can make the evaluation.
    • Intervention system level, using the tools already worked in Safe and protective environments, the Positive discipline and Aware affectivity.
    • more concrete intervention, things to do in day to day from alternative care arrangements or from community work.
    • Therapeutic intervention, that should be performed by specialists with specific training in trauma, but which may be accompanied from all levels.
  • The addressing trauma at the organizational level, with a series of guidelines for capacity development, the adequacy of systems performance against trauma in children, adolescents and institutional positioning needed to lead social change.

The process has been very interesting, and connects with previous work we have done since childhood Espirales Consulting with both the Regional Office of SOS Children's Villages for Latin America and the Caribbean to National Associations. Initial interviews and previous virtual meeting allowed me to prepare the training material I taught for three intense days of July in Asuncion, Paraguay, representatives of SOS Children's Villages twenty countries and the Regional Office. Your questions, comments and contributions, I thank from here, They have been essential to achieve the final document.

I hope you find it useful to those you work with children, and adolescents at any level, and that you can help identify the traumas around you to, as the title says, you may go “accompanying the wounds of the soul” in the recovery process.
