Resumen

El presente artículo describe el proceso de implantación de dos la primera letra de las tres palabras minúscula en el Sistema de Protección Infantil de Gipuzkoa (España): SafeCare e incredible years. El primero es un programa de intervención en el domicilio para familias negligentes o en riesgo de negligencia con niños menores de 5 años. El segundo es un programa terapéutico grupal para familias con niños entre 4 y 8 años con problemas de comportamiento cuyos padres tienen dificultades significativas para su manejo. Se describe el proceso por el que las instituciones responsables de la protección infantil en Gipuzkoa iniciaron un cambio desde los modelos actuales de intervención hacia programas más estructurados, focalizados y breves que han mostrado resultados positivos en aplicaciones previas en otros países. Se tratan cuestiones relacionadas con la adaptación de los programas, la selección y formación de profesionales y se presentan los resultados prey postobtenidos en la aplicación preliminar de ambos programas a un número limitado de familias. Se presenta el diseño de la siguiente fase del proceso (implantación piloto con diseño experimental para evaluación de resultados). Se discuten cuestiones relevantes de este proceso, que pueden ser de utilidad para aquellas administraciones e instituciones que pretendan llevar a cabo un proceso similar.

Abstract

This paper describes the implementation process of two evidence-based programs in Gipuzkoa's Child Protection System (Spain): SafeCare and Incredible Years. SafeCare is a home visiting program for high-risk and neglectful families with children under 5 years. Incredible Years is a parenting skills training program for families with children between 4 to 8 years with behavior problems whose parents have significant difficulties to manage. The paper describes the process by which public institutions responsible for child protection in Gipuzkoa decided to shift from current intervention programs towards more structured, focused, and short-term programs that have shown positive results in previous applications in other countries. Issues related to programs adaptation, selection, and training of professionals and preand postresults obtained in the preliminary application of SafeCare and Incredible Years to a limited set of families are presented. Finally, the next step of the implementation process (pilot implementation with a randomized control trial design) is described. The paper discusses a significant number of issues that have been important throughout this process and that may be useful for administrations and institutions that wish to undertake a similar process.
