Publication “Voices for change. Methodological guide for consulting children, girls and adolescents who are in residential care” by Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo for UNICEF Spain

Portada de la guía "Voces para el cambio", by Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo, for UNICEF Spain

The modification that was made of the Law of Protection of Children in Spain with the approval of the law 16/2015, later reinforced by Law 8/2021, the 4 June, of Comprehensive Protection of Children and Adolescents against violence represents a challenge for the protection system in many ways. But there is one especially relevant: guarantee the full implementation of the right to participation of children, girls and adolescents under protection measures. A challenge in which very significant progress has been made in recent years, but that is still far from being a reality.

Phone Voices for change. Methodological guide for consulting children, girls and adolescents in residential care, published by UNICEF Spain, aims to be a methodological instrument to achieve this challenge. Its objective is to propose a methodology to carry out consultations with children, girls and adolescents in residential care. A methodology that considers the specificities of this population in order to guarantee legitimate participatory processes, meaningful and protective. A methodology that raises the consultations as one more element in a process of internal transformation of the protection homes until reaching a greater degree of protagonism of the boys and girls over their own lives.. And a methodology that can then be adapted to different query objects.

But above all it aims to provide a tool to professionals, entities and institutions of the protection system that decide to evaluate their work to increase its rigor and quality. Children, girls and adolescents are the recipients of the work of the protection system. Therefore, any evaluation process, improvement or quality that you want to promote will not be legitimate if it is not part of the needs assessment and proposals for improvement that the children themselves, girls and adolescents carry out.

Sometimes you don't wonder because you don't know how. Sometimes because you are afraid of the answer. The guide we have developed Pepa Horno and F. Javier Romeo aims to remove the first of the two obstacles. Winning the second is already an institutional and professional decision of the protection system in each autonomous community, and the management and educational team of each foster home.

Here we have the recording of the session:

We hope that the guide will be useful and that you will find us at the presentation.

“Psychic trauma belongs to everyone”, new book by Begoña Aznarez with the foreword by Pepa Horno

Portada del libro "El trauma psíquico es de todos" Aznárez BegoñaOne of the pillars of the CI Spirals philosophy since its creation was the construction of networks. Link people, to professional teams with each other. The network is a security condition, legitimacy and technical rigor as well as human care.

Since that construction of networks we have met extraordinary people and professionals that we have admired. And life in some cases has offered me the privilege of being able to generate a deep emotional bond with some of them.. And so you don't just admire them professionally, but you love them. Begoña Aznárez is one of those examples.

Begoña is a therapist who is creating a school. Not just for the people you serve, but through all the professionals he is training and accompanying from the Spanish Society of Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychology (SEMPyP). It has an unusual characteristic in our guild which is the ability to make complex things simple., to explain in a simple way the great technical concepts of psychology. In this way, manages to make them close and understandable not only for professionals, but for families and children, girls and adolescents with whom we work. His human congruence and his ability to structure the therapeutic process are unique. The book Psychic trauma belongs to everyone is a perfect example of this ability. In it, he develops a technical model for dealing with trauma in childhood and adolescence, shaping it into a series of lessons.. But it goes further, making children's trauma visible, girls and adolescents as a community responsibility. Hence its title.

The concept of “trauma” It is essential for any professional who wants to work with rigor and technical updating in the field of protection. The knowledge and advances that trauma psychology has entailed in the intervention requires professionals who want to carry out their work efficiently to train on trauma. From Espirales CI we are promoting this training and a whole series of materials on this subject, starting with the manual Accompanying the wounds of the soul. Trauma in childhood and adolescence what has developed F. Javier Romeo. That is why receiving a book like the one published this week by Begoña is a gift.

But the gift was double. Because Begoña asked me to write the foreword to this book. An honor for me as a professional, but above all as a person. So I end this post by literally transcribing the prologue that I wrote, in the confidence that it encourages you to read a book that gives light far beyond the professional.

The prologue goes like this:

“Those of us who work with people know that the effectiveness of what we do depends not so much on what we do as on the way we do it. It is to a large extent the way in which we carry out our work that marks its effectiveness. The better professional is not the one who knows the most, but the one who is able to find a simple and clear way of explaining the processes and approaching them effectively.. All the more so when it comes to the human soul and its pain.

There are many of us who have been waiting for this book for years. Longing for Begoña to find enough time and peace to write it. Because she combines that "what" with a luminous "how". But his patients always went before, each soul and its history, each trauma and its imprint, each boy or girl and their magic.

Begoña is one of the best professionals I have ever met. José Luis [Marin] would say, in that polarized style that Begoña likes so much, which is the best. And she has been a teacher and guide to more professionals than she can imagine.. That is why writing this foreword is in itself an honor and a gift.. She knows that I have dedicated my professional life to giving a voice to people whose trauma stories have made them mute., to break that silence of which he speaks from the beginning. And it was partly thanks to her.

But Begoña is something else: she is a magician and flies. That is why when you start reading the pages of this book you get a feeling of disbelief.. It seems impossible to describe the complex in such a simple way and to name suffering in such a bright and courageous way.. When you advance in its reading you will realize that its pages are leaving you without excuses: as a therapist to incorporate their technical proposal into your work and as a person to watch or revisit your own narrative.

It is quite a challenge that Begoña proposes: talk about trauma both to people outside the psychotherapeutic field but who know the trauma (conscious or unconsciously) and will be recognized in many passages of the book as professionals of psychology and medicine. She says it clear: "What heals is the bond". And through the pages she guides us sensitively, synchrony and presence.

This book generates explicit semantic memory on more than one level. And it mentalizes the intuitions and “gut” sensations that many of us have had throughout our professional career.. Break the silence. And for those of us who have had the privilege of listening to Begoña in training sessions or conferences, it is quite a re-experiment, almost like listening to her. These pages develop a therapeutic approach to intervening with people with stories of trauma.. There is little literature that describes the technical models of intervention in such a way that they can be generalized. We need to ensure that psychology and medicine professionals are able to read the history of trauma behind the emotional symptoms, behavioral and somatic. That conscious gaze that allows you to see the horror, fear and the courage of survival.

Because let me finish this prologue by choosing my lesson. I choose the 48. The vacuum, the horror, the value, healing. I have rarely read a summary that better honors all the people who have found their unique way, own and brave to heal your trauma history. And the light that comes to us when in the lesson 52 speaks to us of that "healthy and wise bond with ourselves"… that we see appear in the soul, the eyes, people's actions and smiles in the therapeutic context. The one that gives meaning to what we do. That what, hopefully, we achieve with our inner child”.

Little more can I add. Except, again: thanks, Begoña.

Book “Putting soul to pain. Therapeutic intervention with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse” coordinated by Pepa Horno

Portada del libro "Poniendo alma al dolor"Technical supervision is a unique learning space, not only for those who receive it but for those who supervise. In recent years since CI Spirals We have the privilege of supervising teams of professionals from different areas of the protection system. The objective is to improve the quality of the intervention from the professional's awareness process. A space in which cases are discussed, but above all from the internal experience of each professional and as a team.

In these spaces we meet incredible professionals. Professionals with a great technical background, but above all with an inestimable human quality and a commitment to the pain of the people they serve difficult to match. This is the case of Elena González, Carolina Moniño and Carmen Ruiz, psychologists of the UTASI, The Therapeutic Unit for Child Sexual Abuse who created the Directorate General of Children, Youth and Families of the Government of the Balearic Islands to take care of the children, girls and adolescents victims of sexual abuse and with protective families.

Within the framework of this supervision, the project for this book arose, Putting soul to pain. Therapeutic intervention with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse, which has just been published by the editorial Desclée De Brouwer. Again we thank the editorial Desclée De Brouwer its commitment to the publication and dissemination of works aimed at improving technical interventions from psychology.

In recent years, many publications on child sexual abuse have been developed in our country. But very few describe the therapeutic process for caring for children, girls and adolescents victims of sexual abuse. We are not referring to a technical manual on areas to address or understanding abuse, but to a detailed description of HOW to approach it. A description of the process that is followed in the consultation from the first day the child arrives, girl or adolescent until closing session. With enough detail to allow it to be replicated by other professionals in various contexts. Professionals who work, being or not aware of it, with children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse. For this reason, from CI Spirals we recommend reading it to all professionals who work in the protection system, but not only, also to any therapist who works with children, and adolescents.

Putting soul to pain also has a second value, and it is the bet that its authors made to give soul and voice to that story. And it could not be another voice than that of children, girls and adolescents who went through treatment at the time and their families. Because his voice is the only one that can convey his courage, their capacity for resilience and their therapeutic process.

Child sexual abuse does not have to be a conviction, and the stories in this book prove it. It does not imply a sentence if the appropriate therapeutic help and accompaniment is received, in which affective warmth is understood as a condition for technical rigor. Nor is it a condemnation if you have a solid emotional support network, which is another factor that is talked about a lot in this book: the role of the support network beyond families. The stories in its pages give this book congruence and consistency.

For me it has been a privilege to coordinate and participate in the development of this book, as well as for Javier Romeo carry out the first technical review of your content. We believe that it is a necessary book and had to be written by active professionals, with the legitimacy of years of experience watching children, girls and adolescents victims of child sexual abuse. And with the soul that only three professionals like them could give their pages.

As I wrote in the prologue, “This book keeps the horror and wonder of which the human being is capable. Y, especially, the light that arises from the darkness when professional rigor is united, honesty and human warmth”. We trust that you will receive the welcome you deserve.
