Educazione familiare e servizi per l'infanzia / Education familiale et services pour l'enfance. XIII Congresso Internazionale. Firenze, 17-19 novembre 2010

Atti del congresso / Actes de congrès

The research and training works of the XIII Congress of the International Association for Training and Research in Family Education (AIFREF) were guided by the term 'Service'; more specifically, of setting oneself at the service of childhood. Devoting oneself to the service of those pursuing the path towards independence is an aspect that is given great prominence in the modern world. We now find ourselves facing a profound transformation: entering the postmodern age, we realise that the concept of service has a completely different connotation. In order to offer an enhanced service to childhood, we have to be aware of what could be useful. What allows the child to grow up and become free? And, consequently what services do we need to create for children? How relevant, efficient, effective and sustainable are these services, consciously designed and rendered operational? These are some of the issues addressed within the framework of the works of the XIII AIFREF Congress.
