FARAJ, Suane Pastoriza; ANTONIAZZI, Mariana Peripolli  and  SIQUEIRA, Aline Cardoso. Role of tutelary counselors in cases of delivery of a child for adoption. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2021, vol.14, n.2, pp. 1-24. ISSN 1983-8220.

This study aimed to know the role of tutelary counselors in cases of voluntary surrender for adoption. Seven tutelary counselors from a municipality in Rio Grande do Sul responded to an individual interview. Among the results, it was found that the women donors experienced a situation of social vulnerability, such as economic difficulties, absence of family support and child's father. The role of counselors in the face of surrender cases consisted of listening and guiding women. They also sought to ensure the psychological and social support of women and children based on the articulation of resources available in the municipality. At this point, the woman's search for anonymity translated into her refusal by psychological counseling was verified, which could lead to her isolation and the experience of suffering without support. This research also raised the discussion about the need for a specialized service linked to maternity hospitals.
