An investigative journalist uncovers a hidden custom in Afghanistan that will transform your understanding of what it means to grow up as a girl. “An astonishingly clear picture of this resourceful, if imperfect, solution to the problem of girlhood in a society where women have few rights and overwhelming restrictions.”—The Boston Globe In Afghanistan, a culture ruled almost entirely by men, the birth of a son is cause for celebration and the arrival of a daughter is often mourned as misfortune. A bacha posh (literally translated from Dari as “dressed up like a boy”) is a third kind of child—a girl temporarily raised as a boy and presented as such to the outside world. Jenny Nordberg, the reporter who broke the story of this phenomenon for the New York Times, constructs a powerful and moving account of those secretly living on the other side of a deeply segregated society where women have almost no rights and little freedom. The Underground Girls of Kabul is anchored by vivid characters who bring this remarkable story to life: Azita, a female parliamentarian who sees no other choice but to turn her fourth daughter Mehran into a boy; Zahra, the tomboy teenager who struggles with puberty and refuses her parents’ attempts to turn her back into a girl; Shukria, now a married mother of three after living for twenty years as a man; and Nader, who prays with Shahed, the undercover female police officer, as they both remain in male disguise as adults. At the heart of this emotional narrative is a new perspective on the extreme sacrifices of Afghan women and girls against the violent backdrop of America’s longest war. Divided into four parts, the book follows those born as the unwanted sex in Afghanistan, but who live as the socially favored gender through childhood and puberty, only to later be forced into marriage and childbirth. The Underground Girls of Kabul charts their dramatic life cycles, while examining our own history and the parallels to subversive actions of people who live under oppression everywhere.

¿Cómo sobrevive en Bogotá una migrante venezolana asediada por la depresión y la voz de la locura, que tiene un matrimonio resquebrajado y una niña que le seca las lágrimas, y cuya única fuente de fraternidad es la literatura? Escribe. Escribe cartas a su amigo F., en las que vierte sus ansias de habitar en las palabras, sus sueños de nefelibata, sus poemas, “relleno de papeleras” y “mariqueras suyas”, como ella llama a sus escritos. Y en estas cartas también le cuenta lo que significa salir de un país sin lugar para ella y llegar a otro en el que su nacionalidad anula su individualidad. El relato ganador del Concurso de Novela Universidad Central 2019 ilumina el vórtice de un drama social de carácter transnacional y un problema de salud pública desde la profunda intimidad de una narración en primera persona que fluye audaz y auténticamente entre la prosa epistolar y el verso libre, entre el pasado y el presente, en últimas, entre la conciencia y el abismo de aquello que se apodera de su voz.

Inteligência espiritual é um assunto muito discutido atualmente por psicólogos e outros estudiosos da mente humana. Estudos científicos estão confirmando as palavras de Agostinho de que fomos feitos para Deus e inquieto estará nosso coração até repousar em Deus. Além de bio-psico-social, o ser humano também possui a dimensão espiritual, que é a mais elevada, pois se relaciona com o transcendente. E, ao conectar-se com Deus, ele volta à sua verdadeira origem. um ser criado à imagem divina, com vida plena.

This book presents the results of researches conducted with children and youth at risk for over 20 years in Brazil. It addresses a series of topics related to children and youth living in poverty or in situations of social vulnerability, such as family, sexual and dating violence; adolescent mothers and mothers who put their children for adoption; children and youth living in foster and institutional care; and adolescents involved in drug trafficking or incarcerated in juvenile detention centers. Building upon the Bioecological Theory of Human Development, this volume emphasizes the innovative knowledge about psychosocial development of vulnerable children and youth produced in Brazil and aims to present theoretical and methodological approaches developed especially for the countries of the Global South, in an attempt to overcome the scientific divide between the North and South. Northern research agenda defines as global the theories, methodologies, and application of knowledge on social policies and interventions. However, the contexts, histories, and cultural processes are essential for producing and applying research knowledge according to specific regional characteristics, organizations, and conditions. Human development is related to contextual features and cannot be directly imported from one place to another. Departing from these original theoretical and methodological approaches, the book also presents the results of evidence-based interventions, showing its effectiveness in specific contexts. All of this makes Vulnerable Children and Youth in Brazil – Innovative Approaches from the Psychology of Social Development a valuable tool for psychologists, educators, social scientists and public health professionals studying or working with children and youth at risk in different parts of the world, contributing to the understanding of human development in cultural context.
