Title: RIZZINI, Irene e ALMEIDA, Neli C. A. From institutionalization to family settings: Rethinking practices for children and youth with mental disabilities in Brazil (pp. 187-203).
This book creates an opportunity for experts to use interdisciplinary approaches and perspectives, and provides evidence-based knowledge to deal with the stresses of children and adolescents living in poverty, difficult socioeconomic conditions, and varied cultures. It also indicates that shared understandings can promote useful and well-reasoned programs in similar contexts in different countries wherever children and adolescents are growing up in complex and risky environments.
The contributors who represent several disciplines apply their knowledge to the development of children in contemporary society. They highlight the conversations that schools, families, communities, individuals, and nation-states need to have and, most importantly, the responsibility for everyone to develop an understanding of the mental-health needs of the new generation.
