General overview
IMG 20140725 184120
Psy + Onlus supports the right to inclusion of people with special needs. In past years we have had the opportunity to confirm, through extensive research and observations, the well-known iatrogenic effect of hospitalization: long-term hospitalizations, despite improvements in clinical and organizational practices, negatively affect the development opportunities of young people and bring to a progressive involution in adults. With "Special needs" we refer to the needs that derive from strongly disabling conditions such as infantile cerebral palsy, autism, encephalopathies: these patients should be supported through complex multidisciplinary interventions, managed by adequately trained and supervised teams, able to program and provide support and care activities both at home and outside, in close collaboration and contact with family members.
 

Ljubav-The words of love

The video "Ljubav-The Words of Love" is a work by Monica Ranieri, Anthropologist, volunteer of Psy + Onlus, within the project "A Special Life - Special care for Special Needs". The international project, which started in October 2015 is in full swing. Monica and Paolo have been working in the field for about 4 months Naša Kuća, Serbian workshop attended by young adults with mental disabilities. Their work, at times difficult, hampered by serious language barriers, is full of a very important added value: the relationship. Entering an unknown context, understanding its dynamics, being accepted, being experienced as emotionally central figures, is not always tangible but it is the best result that can be expected from a project.
