The DPU should be considered the basic endogenous factor for sustainable rural development in Mexico. Therefore, how could the DPU and its territorial environment be strengthened to achieve sustainable development? For the specific case of the agricultural DPU, a sustainable strategy is considered to be the implementation of the Silvopastoral System, which should be contextualized to the territorial characteristics.</p> Celsa Cosío Ruiz Copyright (c) Tue, 17 Nov 2020 10:08:27 +0100 Intra-Family Sexual Violence against Children and Adolescents and the Professional Work of Social Workers <p>Violence is something that is becoming more and more present in the history of society. One of the types that it presents is intrafamily sexual violence against children and adolescents, committed by those who would have the function of protecting them against any and all forms of violence. Acting directly with the child and adolescent who are victims of this violation and their family members, the social worker seeks the realization of rights, the reflection that everyone is a subject of rights, protagonists of their history. It carries out referrals and interventions that seek to strengthen the family and “overcome the situation of violence”.</p> Mayara Simon Bezerra, Maria Cristina Piana, Adriana Giaqueto Jacinto Copyright (c) Fri, 20 Nov 2020 16:25:15 +0100 USSR: Space Optimism in the 1960s’ Design <p>This paper is based on a review of historical events in the USSR, which took place against the backdrop of the golden decade of the Soviet space age - the 1960s - and its relationship to the institutionalization of design in the country. The Soviet space design, little mentioned in the prevailing discourses of the discipline’s history, was a vehicle for the propaganda of socialism and holds interesting facts about social pride and optimism for the space. The interpretation of everyday artifacts from that Soviet period reaffirms the rhetorical power of design and consists of a meaningful representation of its material and visual culture.</p> Renata Canevari, Sofía Venzel Copyright (c) Tue, 15 Dec 2020 12:04:39 +0100 Strategies for the Transformation of Pain from the Experience of Afro-Colombian Women Survivors <p>This article gives an account of the processes undertaken by Afro-Colombian women who are survivors of sexual violence and displacement in the context of the Colombian conflict to heal their pain, in which, using their ancestral knowledge, their ways of weaving community and relating, they empower political processes, of visibility and resistance to a violence that has not only penetrated the body but also its family and community nucleus. The article therefore focuses on the processes that women have developed from their role as surviving victims and from which it is possible to reflect on the different intersections present when reading violence towards them.</p> Alba Lucía Cruz Castillo, Alejandra Calderón, Isabela Castellano, Sonia Flórez Copyright (c) Mon, 04 Jan 2021 20:53:45 +0100 Political Changes in the Catholic Church Between 1967 and 1971 <p>This article is the result of a master's research developed in the Graduate Program in Education, at the University of São Paulo. We aim to discuss the political changes of the Catholic Church between 1967-1971. We use the Fraternity Campaigns as a documentary source. At first we identified the Church as a social institution, then we developed the Church's division into conservative, progressive and liberating wings. Finally, it was possible to identify that the Catholic Church presented itself in 1967 as an institution with aspects of the conservative wing. However, over the years, the Church has adopted a more progressive stance.</p> Paulo Vitor de Souza Pinto Copyright (c) Mon, 04 Jan 2021 21:11:34 +0100 How Athletes Understand the Impact of Sports on their Psychosocial Development, the Problems they face and the Support they Need: a Qualitative Research Analysis <p>There is evidence to suggest that athletes face multiple challenges during their career from injuries, to pressure from parents, competition, lack of support and so forth. A psychologist is important for helping the athlete overcome individual difficulties and succeed. This study is focusing on understanding the role of sports on athletes’ psychosocial development, the challenges they face and the psychological support they need from the athletes’ perspective. Through a qualitative research analysis, this study shows that a psychologist can have an overarching role and support not only the athlete but also the athletes’ environment such as the coach, parents and teachers. Reflecting this finding, an athlete-centred model is proposed.</p> Maria Georgiou, Costas S Constantinou, Manos Stefanakis, Efthimis Kioumourtzoglou Copyright (c) Mon, 11 Jan 2021 11:40:18 +0100
