Abstract: Violence against children and adolescents in Brazil presents a historically complex scenario, in which problems are often subjected to individual evaluations, counteracting violence, which presents many meanings. These evaluations directly impact on children and adolescents referrals to the service network, causing mistaken decisions and making notifications based on factual criteria, characterizing the lack of networking and intersectorial actions. Therefore, the aim of the research is to elaborate a protocol that will help the institutions that are part of the System of Guarantee of Rights of the municipalities of Uberaba / MG and Bauru / SP to manage the notifications of violence against children and adolescents. The research uses a quantitative approach, using the modeling technique. In this sense, the Analytic Network Process (ANP) becomes a method to support the appropriate decision, related the fundamental rights of children and adolescents with the types of violence committed and selecting the priority sector that the subjects should be attended. The service protocol was developed based on the specific analysis of each typology, presenting the routing flows within the protection networks of the cities.
The research has some limitations that need to be discussed, such as: several decision makers involved, low participation at Bauru / SP, difficulty in understanding the questionnaires and a large number of incoherent answers.
Venue: QA1.1 amphitheatre, South Tower, 1st floor.
CEG-IST seminars are free and open to all.
