Self-care, storytelling, rights and inclusion policies.
This study program proceeds and is structured around the recognition of the fact that the educational dimension carries within itself a need to foster, promote and activate integration processes of the person within the family, school, social, cultural and historical contexts - reference policies. An integration that is accompanied, however, by the consideration of the crucial importance of the psycho-affective dynamics that characterize the process of development of identity, emotional literacy, construction of emotional and interpersonal bonds, as well as meeting and dialogue within the social space and shared communicative. Integration, therefore, which, however, must not be exhausted by dynamics of passive assimilation, of conforming conformation, of dispossession and loss of self. Within this framework, the notion of "care" (see Giosi's text) is central, as a pedagogical-educational category / strategy aimed at promoting processes and paths of self-analysis, conscientization, construction of significant relationships for the person.
Within a public, political space, within a perspective of social justice, of recognizing the rights of people with different degrees of psycho-physical integrity, the question of care is linked, in an essential way, to the issues pertaining to the subject of addiction. , of vulnerability, of autonomy, of recognition.
