The "Welcoming Families" program is an alternative to institutional care. It consists of training voluntary families to exercise the temporary care of children and adolescents away from the family by judicial decision. This study seeks to investigate the representations, motivations, difficulties, and the role of psychology in promoting a healthy host family. Three families and two psychology professionals from the "Welcoming Families" program of the city of São Carlos-SP will participate in the research. Remote interviews will be conducted with the participants, who will respond to a semi-structured interview script prepared by the author. The interviews will be recorded and transcribed. The data will be coded and grouped into categories of analysis, for further discussion based on the literature of the area.(AU)
