Presentation of the structure of Antaviana
Antaviana is a residential centre of educational action which has the main characteristic of take care of young pregnant women or mothers with their children, who are minors and who are under the supervision/custody of the General Direction of Attention to Childhood and Adolescence (DGAIA). Antaviana is the only residence, with these characteristics and educational model, in Catalonia. The institutional mission of Antaviana is to exercise the custody of the teen pregnant women or mothers that already have with them their children, by temporarily developing functions of attention, education and accompaniment in their maternity which involves: to take care of the young mother in an affective and safe physical and moral environment, while meeting their essential needs, and providing an integral education and to evaluate the viability of their maternity.
Contribution to the project
The experience acquired in the work realised by the professionals of the maternal residence Antaviana is based on protecting and encouraging the mother-link, activating the processes, identifying the positive emotions, the needs of babies, stimulating the healthy mother-child communication patterns, encouraging a kind look towards the child, accompanying the young mothers in the construction of their “history”, collecting positive experiences, emotions and aspects as mothers, and facilitating them the process of differentiation with regard to their history and that of their family.
The educational work focuses on the care of the adolescent and not so much on the baby in order to strengthen their maternal role, so they can exercise the parental roles responding to the needs of their child, improving their skills and personal resources; and avoiding actions oriented to the impersonation, the replacement and/or disqualification of their capabilities, skills and desires.
