Resumo:

The present project intends to develop a longitudinal study, which contemplates (a) the implementation of an intervention program with caregivers, (b) assessing its effects on improving the quality of care provided by caregivers, (c) evaluation of its effects on reducing behavioural problems and increasing the dimensions of well-being, autonomy and future life aspirations of young people. Using an intervention approach, it is intended to cover in twenty residential care institutions in the Porto district, allocated randomly to the experimental group and to the control group where the program will not be implemented. The sample will consist of 300 institutionalized young people and 100 caregivers. It is intended that the present project contributes to raise for the need of investment in the training and human development of caregivers in residential care, and offers a proposal for intervention based on empirical evidence, that can be disseminated at the national and international level.
