Affective-sexual education guide for adolescents “Dare to feel, dare to take care and take care of yourself” prepared by Itziar Fernández and Pepa Horno for the Burgos City Council


Since CI Spirals, we understand affective-sexual education as a human right of children, and adolescents; but also, as a preventive factor that contributes to promoting healthy physical and mental development from an early age.

Our body is a source of communication, affection, tenderness and pleasure. We are sexed beings and sexuality is a dimension of the human being from birth to death, there is enormous variability in the ways of living it, to express it, in the ways of being and relating.

There are many reports and investigations that have been warning of the problems associated with the consumption of pornography from an early age and its relationship with the perpetuation of gender violence in young couples and the increase in sexual violence both within and outside the couple.

When these and these teens have been asked, They report that they turn to the internet and their friends to solve all their doubts related to sexuality; and complain that school educational programs are fundamentally focused on the prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, something that is necessary, but insufficient to understand the wide range of elements that make up a healthy affective-sexual and couple relationship.

And they are right: From educational contexts we have been addressing affective-sexual education treating different topics as if they were watertight compartments: we talk about stereotypes, gender violence, affective-sexual diversity, prevention of sexually transmitted diseases, leaving aside very important aspects.

The first part of your own denomination: education AFFECTIVE-sexual and everything that has to do with desire, eroticism and pleasure. With the arrival of adolescence, desire and sexual attraction are gaining ground. Body and hormonal changes are imposed and can generate a lot of uncertainty and insecurity. This can affect our self-esteem, and a fundamental step to be able to live our affective relationships in a safe and pleasant way is to feel good inside our own body. Pleasure is in the mind, and this is about loving and accepting us first.

The culture of the image and the bombardment of differential stereotypes for boys and girls through the networks does not help at all, quite the opposite, transmits an image of a "unique model" where they must fit in to feel accepted.

On the other hand, the way we express or live our sexuality is unique and personal. Diversity is part of human nature and there are as many ways of feeling and living as people on the planet. Questions arise like: “How is my body?”, “Who I am?”, “Who attracts me?”, “How do I show myself to the world?”. Approach diversity with respect for individuality, assuming a social responsibility to stop machismo, lgtbiphobia and transphobia will allow us to contribute to the establishment of more egalitarian relationships and to the fact that adolescence can be experienced with greater freedom.

Starting from this base, we want boys and girls to be able to clearly differentiate what an affective relationship is (you, free, safe and reciprocal) of a harmful relationship where we can fall into abusive models. That is why we have to talk about respect and care. Since CI Spirals today we spread the Affective-sexual education guide: Dare to feel, dare to take care and watch over you we have prepared Itziar Fernández Cortés and Pepa Horno Goicoechea for him Burgos City Council with illustrations of Patricia corrales, and that addresses affective-sexual education from this perspective, uniting the affectivity, sexuality and protection. We have written it in a direct and simple language so that it can be read directly by adolescents between 13 and 18 years, with some relevant information also for families.

We hope that your pages can be a material where adolescents find an answer to their curiosity., calling things by name, and highlighting the indivisible union between sexuality, affection, placer, respect and intimacy.

“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.

F's videos. Javier Romeo “The three intelligences and sadness” in Spanish, French and Moroccan Arabic

Now closing the revitalization of the Blog “UNICEF with protection centers” during the COVID-19 health emergency we concluded the videos for children, and adolescents (especially for those who live in protection centers) with this last batch.

In first video we explore our three intelligences and how to use them to better manage rabies and second video we saw how to use the three intelligences to better relate to our fears, which were the most prominent emotions then. In third video we focus on something very necessary after all we have lived: learn to ask for help better.

In this fourth batch of videos we become aware of sadness, and how to use the three intelligences to better manage it. Why, curiously, Now that fear for the health emergency is decreasing, sadness begins for all the losses. Loss of persons, who have died or disappeared from daily life. Loss of situations, how to go to the educational center, the times with friends and families and leisure spaces. And also missed opportunities, from the experiences that allow development, like education, relationships and leisure.

There is a temptation to pretend that nothing has happened. But what has happened, has passed, and we need to assimilate it little by little. We need to give ourselves time to go through sadness.

In this video aimed at children, and adolescents, we explore the use of the three intelligences seen in the previous videos to better manage sadness. With seven keys and a reminder of the importance of asking for help, it will be possible that we take advantage of the sadness to value what we have in each moment.

Article “Rest the soul”, by Pepa Horno for BBK Family

After everything we have experienced during the health emergency, it is important that we rest.

At Espirales Consultoría de Infancia we have been collaborating with the programa BKK Family they coordinate Bidegintza and EDE Foundation (among other issues, with these videos about conscious parenting, with these public workshops who taught F. Javier Romeo or with this video about “Living outdoors” at the beginning of the coronavirus health emergency).

This time they asked me for an article about this different summer, and my fundamental message is its title: we need “Rest the soul”.

I hope that Article you like it and it helps you find moments of rest,

F's videos. Javier Romeo “The three intelligences and ask for help” in Spanish, French and Moroccan Arabic

Here we have one more delivery included in the revitalization of the Blog “UNICEF with protection centers” during the health emergency by COVID-19 with a new batch of videos for children, and adolescents (especially for those who live in protection centers).

In first video we learned about our three intelligences and how to use them to better manage rabies, and second video we explore how to use the three intelligences to better relate to our fears. In this third video we focus on something fundamental after all we have lived: learn to ask for help better. Most of us have had a hard time during confinement, and children, girls and teenagers too. And now that there is more relationship, it's time to ask for help, from people close or far, to be able to solve what has appeared in this time and to be able to live with accompaniment the different experiences.

They are designed to be seen with children, girls and adolescents and being able to ask them questions like “Do you need any help from me that I haven't seen in this time??”, “Who else could you ask for help?”, “What other ways to ask for help can you think of??”.

With “C” the “school”: creativity, community, awareness and warmth

Today I had the honor of participating in a virtual round table organized by the Early Childhood Education Advisors of the Cantabria Teachers' Centers. With the title “The return to the classrooms in Early Childhood Education: complementary looks”, we have gathered professionals in the field of pediatrics (Maria Jesus Cabero), The education (David Altimir), children's rights (Nacho guadix) and psychology (that have been assigned to me). It's been two hours that I've really enjoyed, seeing how the different perspectives are necessary to guarantee that the return of the boys and girls of Early Childhood Education return to the classrooms safely (not to education, because most have received continuous educational support from the teaching teams).

When we have been invited to close, three words have come to mind, that in the end there have been four. And all four start with “C”, as “school”.

Creativity. If the Early Childhood Education teams are characterized by something, it is their imagination, for their ability to create new resources that adapt, moment by moment to the needs of the children with whom they work. It's time to continue on this path even more: how to combine health security with emotional security, how to organize spaces and relationships, how to face the different challenges… That is why it is necessary to continue thinking and rethinking each measure, but alone is not enough, it will be essential to have the second element.

Community. Each person has our strengths and our strengths, and our professions too. So we will need to have different views, with the creativity of other points of view to tackle the challenges that lie ahead. In the case of Early Childhood Education, educational teams are already used to collaboration between teachers, and now it will be very practical to structurally incorporate other voices. On the one hand, families, which are always the first affective reference of boys and girls and that, also, have been co-facilitators of education and learning during confinement. On the other hand, other professional teams, from the fields of health and social services, but also from leisure and free time, or artistic activities. And you can't miss the boys and girls themselves. Participation is not just a right and one of the pillars of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. My professional experience (and personal) is that, when we ask children about the issues that affect them, they can give us much-needed visions and innovative and simple solutions at the same time. When we have all these looks, not only will we feel better with the accompaniment, but we will give more effective and satisfactory answers for all parties.

Consciousness. We are in a new time, living experiences for which we have no close references. In extraordinary situations we will see extraordinary reactions. Anger, fear or sadness will appear in boys and girls with very varied forms, and also within us. We need awareness to navigate them, and much of the work with children will consist of helping them to also learn to navigate with the accompaniment of adults who love and care for them.. (I leave some links to videos that we have prepared from Espirales Consultoría de Infancia for UNICEF Spain, on our three intelligences and how to use them to better manage rabies, the how to use them to better relate to our fears, or how to ask for help, soon). Knowing that there are going to be boys and girls who are going to return to the classrooms with fear in their hearts means that we have to use our utmost conscience to take care of the last element.

Warmth. The first ties in the lives of boys and girls are marked by warmth (or for lack of it), also with their teachers. This is well known by the Early Childhood Education educational teams, who find ways to make boys and girls feel accepted and loved in their schools. After all these months, and with the emotional cold that they can carry settled in their bodies, boys and girls are going to need all the warmth that their teachers can give them, combining creativity with health security. That must be one of the main objectives at all times., but now even more if possible.

I hope these ideas inspire you to find your own way of being with children, and adolescents.

With hope and awareness,
