    • "Assim, a forma como a mãe encara a revelação de uma situação abusiva é determinada por características de sua própria história e pela representação que ela tem de família. Martins e Jorge (2010) realizaram uma pesquisa que objetivou conhecer as características do abuso sexual em crianças e adolescentes, a partir de 186 casos registrados nos Conselhos Tutelares e programas de atendimento do município de Londrina-PR, em 2006. Tal pesquisa contatou uma tímida participação da mãe como notifi cadora em casos de abuso sexual (8,1%). "

    ABSTRACT: The sexual violence against girls is a huge problem in the society. This study aims to understand the conceptions and beliefs about sexual abuse, family relationships and reactions of adolescents in a social vulnerability situation. The participants were 30 female adolescents, aged from 12 to 16 years old, from a social project in a city in a city of Rio Grande do Sul state. Data were collected through focal groups. The results show that the girls understand sexual abuse as a stressful event that is difficult to be handled. They mentioned shame, threats from the offender, dependence among family and perpetrator, lack of communication among parents and children and proximity between the mother and her partner as aspects present in this phenomenon. Specific policies, which act toward the families, both as a preventive point of view and dealing with sexual violence, are suggested and discussed.

    ABSTRACT: RESUMO As estratégias preventivas e terapêuticas relacionadas à Violência Sexual (VS) contra crianças e adolescentes têm tido foco predominante na população feminina. A VS contra meninos é pouco abordada e iniciativas nessa temática precisam ser desenvolvidas com objetivo de contribuir para maior identificação e notificação dos casos, assim como desenvolvimento de intervenções psicossociais mais efetivas. Diante disso, o objetivo deste artigo é o de relatar o processo de produção e utilização de um documentário sobre VS contra meninos como estratégia de intervenção psicoterapêutica para estes casos. O embasamento científico como norteador para o conteúdo abordado, bem como a importância da consulta a matérias audiovisuais já produzidos sobre VS foram aspectos importantes no processo de produção do documentário. O emprego do documentário com três meninos em tratamento psicológico indicou sua adequação, facilitando o processo de revelação, no contexto psicoterapêutico, das situações de VS sofridas por eles. Palavras-chave: Violência sexual; meninos; documentário. ABSTRACT The Production and Use of a Documentary About Sexual Violence Against Boys The preventative and therapeutic strategies related to sexual violence (SV) against children and adolescents have been primarily focused on the female population while SV against boys is rarely examined. Initiatives on this theme must be developed in order to contribute towards greater identification and notification of such cases, as well as to develop more effective psychosocial interventions. Given this, this article describes the production and use of a documentary about SV against boys as a psychotherapeutic intervention strategy for these cases. The scientific foundation acting as the guide for the examined content as well as the importance of consulting already-created audiovisual materials about SV were important aspects in this documentary's production process. The utilization of the documentary in the psychological treatment of three boys indicated its aptitude for facilitating, in a psychotherapeutic context, the revelation of the SV they suffered.

    ABSTRACT: In this article, we draw on a qualitative case study undertaken in 2008 and 2009 of staff working at community-based organisations for at-risk youth in Juiz de Fora, Brazil, to examine staff members' perspectives of adolescent health-risk behaviours and resiliency. We use these data to explore how recent policy changes in Brazil have led to a shift in the ways in which adolescent risk taking is perceived by those working in youth services, and to suggest the influence that this has had on the way in which these entities promote resiliency among the population they serve. Specifically, we argue that Brazil's Child and Adolescent Act of 1990, a policy derived from the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, has been instrumental in reframing for the community-based organisations the question of adolescent health-risk behaviours into a rights-based framework and has shifted the perceptions of those working at such organisations as to who a youth ‘at-risk’ is, why young people engage in risk taking and how best to promote resiliency. This work has implications for understanding both how risk and resiliency are constructed in different social and cultural contexts and how such concepts may change over time due to shifting socio-political climates.
