Abstract

Este estudo pretende refletir sobre os resultados do contacto no acolhimento familiar, identificar os obstáculos para a sua realização e analisar o modo como as famílias de origem, as famílias de acolhimento e os profissionais percecionam esta realidade. É usada uma triangulação metodológica, com base na análise de inquéritos e entrevistas realizadas com aqueles atores numa amostra de 10 acolhimentos no distrito do Porto. Os resultados permitem concluir que é importante: desenvolver processos de cooperação regulada entre os atores; desenvolver um trabalho mais atento e disponível com os pais biológicos; disponibilizar recursos que facilitem as visitas; e promover processos de formação e de apoio aos atores que abordem as questões da diversidade cultural.
This study intends to reflect on the results of contact, to identify the obstacles to its accomplishment and to analyse how the families of origin, the foster families and the professionals of the technical teams are related, as well as how they perceive and evaluate the reality. A methodological triangulation has been used, based on the analysis of the interviews with the families of origin, the foster families and the professionals of the technical teams, carried out in a sample of 10 hosts of the Porto district. The results show that it is important: (1) to develop processes of regulated cooperation, which improve communication and the relationship between the professionals and the carers, and essentially between these actors and the families of origin; (2) to develop a more attentive and available work with the parents, to support the separation, monitoring and recovery of parental competences; (3) to provide resources to facilitate travel and support the expenses of the visits; and (4) to promote training and educational support procedures that clarify the processes, roles, purposes and potential outcomes of decisions, addressing specifically issues of cultural diversity.
Cette étude a pour but de réfléchir sur les résultats du contact dans le placement familial, d'identifier les obstacles à son accomplissement et d'analyser comment sont liées les familles d'origine, les familles d'accueil et les professionnels perçoivent cette réalité. Une triangulation méthodologique est utilisée, basée sur l'analyse d’enquêtes et d’entretiens avec ces acteurs dans un échantillon de 10 hôtes du district de Porto. Les résultats montrent qu'il est important de: développer des processus de coopération réglementés entre les acteurs; développer un travail plus attentif et disponible avec les parents; fournir des ressources qui facilitent les visites; et promouvoir des processus de formation et de soutien pour les acteurs que traitent des questions de diversité culturelle.
