TAVARES, Andrea Schettino  and  MONTENEGRO, Neulabihan Mesquita e Silva. Psychosocial intervention with juvenile sexual offenders and their families: the multifamilial group. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.64, pp. 82-104. ISSN 0104-7841.

This article presents an experience report about a psychosocial intervention called Multifamilial Group (MG), with juvenile sexual offenders. Practices such as this are a way to ensure protection to victims and decrease the likelihood of recidivism. It is necessary that there be legal accountability and psychosocial care for the perpetrators of violence, according to the Brazilian National Plan to Combat Sexual Violence against Children and Adolescents. Ten families participated in the intervention, meeting for seven sessions, totaling 21 hours of group intervention. The following topics were discussed: protection, sexuality, sexual offense is a crime, transgenerationality, self-esteem and plan of dating and future. The MG offers to participating adolescents and their families the context and the instruments to expand the space for conversation, parental guidance, reflection, acceptance of the suffering of all and promotion of health. This is so due to a focus on potentialities; appreciation of the affective bonds, filial and parental roles; and recognition of the moment to seek autonomy of the adolescent and the consequent need for acceptance of this phase of development by parents (or caregivers who play this role). After the MG, the needs for adolescents to be referred to the protection network were assessed.

Keywords : Juvenile Sexual Offender; Sexual Offense; Psychosocial Intervention; Multifamilial Group.
