CARVALHO, Cíntia; MOURA, Gabriella Garcia  e  AMORIM, Kátia de Souza. Care practices of children with babies in a foster institution. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2019, vol.13, n.3, pp. 48-72. ISSN 1982-1247.

Aiming to investigate care practices of children with babies in institutional care, an exploratory and longitudinal case study was conducted accompanying Ana, a baby aged between 10-12 months. Based on weekly video recordings made in a naturalistic environment, episodes of care were categorized. Three final categories were described: attention-oriented care; request-oriented care (the child met the infants' expressed needs); stress-oriented care (the child acted upon a risk to the baby). The empathic and pro-social character of those practices, their potential to promote foster children's development and learning, and the formation of their social-affective network were discussed. The mediating role of the adult in planning the environment, the supervision and the signification of the children's actions in these encounters was also highlighted.
