CALIMAN, Luciana Vieira et al. Atelier of words: literature, childhood and cultivating attention. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2019, vol.14, n.1, pp. 1-13. ISSN 1809-8908.

This article presents a participative intervention and research that took place in the Center for Child and Youth Psychosocial Care (Capsi), in Vitória, Espírito Santo, Brazil. For more than two years, we ran a literature workshop, called the "Atelier of Words", with children that were cared for by this service. Taking the GAM strategy for support, we built a space of expression and co-management with children, in which we could talk about their diagnosis, medications and healthcare, but also about everything that can be part of a child's life: their school, their family, their body, games, sports and leisure activities. Thus, we reflect upon the importance of literature in accessing and reinventing children's experience. We bring about scenes and clues of our work to demonstrate that cultivating attention became a relevant exercise, not only to create a potent space for expression, but also to help transform established, hierarchical relationships with children, in order to build new possibilities of connection with ourselves and the world.

Palabras clave : Childhood; GAM strategy; Literature; Cultivating attention.
