Share this post
In this video Matilde Luna, a care specialist from Latin America, tells us about the importance of secondary prevention and ways this might be achieved through family support. She is interviewed by Lucie Concordel who has been completing a contract with International Social Services.
Matilde Luna is a psychologist and has a Master’s Degree in Childhood and Family Studies. She is the author of five books and numerous pieces of research on foster care and the protection of the rights of children deprived of parental care. She is a professor in universities in Argentina, Ecuador, and Guatemala, as well as an expert consulted by international bodies, NGOs, and Latin American and Caribbean governments. She has been invited to speak at conferences in Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, and Asia. Since 2008 she has managed Red Latinoamericana de Acogimiento Familiar (RELAF).
Matilde explains the importance of early intervention to identify and support families before they get into difficulties and the consequences if there is a lack of social and community services. She speaks about the situation in Latin America and helps us understand the challenges and opportunities to help prevent unnecessary placement in alternative care.
