II Meeting About Social Occupational Therapy: practice, teaching and research Brazil-France


The presence of Prof. Dr. Ana Claudia Rodrigues Marques in Sao Paulo is essential to accomplish the "II Meeting about Social Occupational Therapy: practice, teaching and research Brazil-France" on two complementary objectives: establishment of a research group and cooperation in educational field. The meeting aims the establishment of a research project and a cooperation (teachers and students) between USP, UFSCar and Ecole d'Ergothérapie de l'Association pour le Développement l'Enseignement (ADERE) - Paris, France. ADERE is a French educational institution affiliated to the World Federation of Occupational Therapy with whom we have engaged in dialogue to develop the teaching program and joint research in the field of social occupational therapy. Frédéric Morestin, coordinator of Département de Recherche et Formation Continue, and Benoît Curnillon from ADERE will be attending to this meeting, with French funding. This will be the second meeting continuing the dialogue started in Paris during the "I Meeting about Social Debates Occupational Therapy: practice, teaching and research Brazil-France", when were gathered: the Brazilian representative Prof. Dr. Denise Barros, Ana Dias Marques, Frédéric Morestin, and some others representants from ADERE. That on occasion, it was decided to hold the event in Sao Paulo and to have the participation of researchers from social occupational therapy in Journées Européennes et Francophones d'Ergotherapie that will happen on in May 2011 in Paris. Researches under development are geared towards issues related to exclusion in the field of action in social occupational therapy, especially for cases of disruption of social networks in France (Paris) and Brazil (São Paulo - São Carlos). The central focus is the relationships networks that are woven from the street and community settings or territories of adult and youth (segments that have special occasions for escape repeatedly from institutional programs from schools, healthcare services or health facilities). It is proposed to learn about these people's lives from their civil organization in culture, religion and also in urban social movements. We must highlight the importance of this cooperation for the Graduate Program in Occupational Therapy, unique in Brazil started in 2010. (AU)
