Limiti, confini, attraversamenti: l’incontro con le famiglie

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] Limits, borders, crossings: meeting with families

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Families participation represents a ground on which services are urged to take action, in order to ensure every child full development. Despite the recognition of the value of educational co-responsibility, however, the relationship with parents is a complex and delicate phenomenon in services 0-6, placing itself in the implicit and latent dimension. The daily gesture of crossing the threshold activates a variety of experiences and representations, on which distances or resistance are built, as well as openings and alliances. Together with this moment there are other threshold-moments that are the backdrop to the daily crossings of the borders, not only physical, but above all relational. Around these boundaries take shape the sense of trust, mutual acceptance, but also the respective recognition of educational roles. The paper intends to present, through the outcomes of some training courses, how the realization of an inclusive and collaborative style with families implies a reflective work on the boundaries and resistances, on the silent and latent aspects of the meeting, gathering its reflections on professional identity.
