Protagonismo infantil: co-construindo significados em meio às práticas sociais
Pires, Sergio Fernandes Senna;Branco, Angela Uchoa;
Paidéia (Ribeir?o Preto) , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-863X2007000300002
Abstract: in this article, the meaning of child participation and his/her effective possibility to take initiatives concerning social practices are discussed considering the institutionalization of childhood and children's segregation from the "adult world". starting from the social construction of the childhood concept, based on the assumption of children inabilities and incapacities, follows a discussion concerning the possible different levels of children participation in decision making. from a sociocultural-historical approach, it is possible to understand how the development of the 'childhood' concept and the adoption of different criteria may promote a closer approach between children and adults and the sharing of projects, responsibilities and commitments.
Cultura, self e autonomia: bases para o protagonismo infantil
Pires, Sergio Fernandes Senna;Branco, Angela Uchoa;
Psicologia: Teoria e Pesquisa , 2008, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-37722008000400004
Abstract: this article discusses the basic dimensions that may contribute to foster children participation in social change: culture, self-construction and autonomy. it presents theoretical concepts and principles of sociocultural constructivism related to self, here conceived as a complex and dynamic system resulting from interactions between active individual and cultural canalizations. taking into account cultural practices related to the institutionalization of childhood, it analyzes how values and beliefs may contribute to children social participation in decision making processes, overcoming current limitations. it concludes that co-constructivism may indeed contribute to promote children social participation, since it emphasizes both culture and the constructive individual.
Into the path of violence: children in a world of weapons
Senna, Sergio,Branco, Angela
Athenea Digital , 2008,
Abstract: From a sociocultural constructivist perspective, this paper analyses the sociocultural processes involved in children's participation in criminal organizations in Rio de Janeiro, and in other violent and armed environments. The analysis is based on the work of Dowdney (2003, 2005), and the work of the Slum Monitoring Center (Observatorio de Favelas, 2006). The article discusses the concept of childhood, and identifies the major factors affecting child development within such contexts: the strategies used by adults to induct children into a criminal organization and to keep them there. It highlights the role of school and work, two environments universally present in the research participants' own narratives. To study the topic demands a systematic approach so as to account for the variety of factors at work, from the historico-social forces revealed in the social practices and the collective culture of gangs, to issues such as autonomy and social responsibility. The paper stresses the need to create collective spaces for expressing and co-constructing meanings, which may encourage social and personal reflection, and so promote healthy developmental contexts for both the individual and society.
Applying Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do Combat Philosophy in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery—7 Principles for Success  [PDF]
Lee Seng Khoo, Vasco Senna-Fernandes
Modern Plastic Surgery (MPS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/mps.2014.42005

At first glance, it may appear that martial arts and surgery do not relate to each other at all. However, martial arts and surgery are all one on the path of knowledge and self discovery. Innovations are constantly being developed; some techniques stand the test of time while others are relegated to history. Martial arts and surgery have also branched out for example boxing, taekwondo, jujitsu and wrestling for martial arts whereas surgery has branched out to orthopaedics, paediatrics, cardiothoracic and neurosurgery to name a few. Some choose to specialize while others choose to be a generalist. Learning methodologies in martial arts and plastic surgery are similar. Martial arts students are the equivalent of surgical residents, and both have to enroll in a school that prepares them to be practitioners of their respective arts. In the last century, formal martial arts academies and surgical residency training programs have sprung up. The standards and entrance requirements vary from school to school as do training methodology and philosophical concepts. In this article, we seek to analyze Bruce Lee’s martial arts’ philosophy of Jeet Kune Do (JKD) and that how we can apply it to our personal path in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

"Oriental anthropometry" in plastic surgery
Senna-Fernandes Vasco
Indian Journal of Plastic Surgery , 2008,
Abstract: Background : According to Chinese medicine, the acupuncture-points′ (acupoints) locations are proportionally and symmetrically distributed in well-defined compartment zones on the human body surface Oriental Anthropometry" (OA). Acupoints, if considered as aesthetic-loci, might be useful as reference guides in plastic surgery (PS). Aim: This study aimed to use aesthetic-loci as anatomical reference in surgical marking of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Method: This was an observational study based on aesthetic surgeries performed in private clinic. This study was based on 106 cases, comprising of 102 women and 4 men, with ages varying from 07 to 73 years, and with heights of between 1.34 m and 1.80 m. Patients were submitted to aesthetic surgical planning by relating aesthetic-loci to conventional surgical marking, including breast surgeries, abdominoplasty, rhytidoplasty, blepharoplasty, and hair implant. The aesthetic-surgical-outcome (ASO) of the patients was assessed by a team of plastic surgeons (who were not involved in the surgical procedures) over a follow-up period of one year by using a numeric-rating-scale in percentage (%) terms. A four-point-verbal-rating-scale was used to record the patients′ opinion of therapeutic-satisfaction (TS). Results: ASO was 75.3 ± 9.4% and TS indicated that most patients (58.5%) obtained "good" results. Of the remainder, 38.7% found the results "excellent", and 2.8% found them "fair". Discussion and Conclusion : The data suggested that the use of aesthetic-loci may be a useful tool for PS as an anatomical reference for surgical marking. However, further investigation is required to assess the efficacy of the OA by providing the patients more reliable balance and harmony in facial and body contours surgeries.
A lei autoral brasileira como elemento de restri??o à eficácia do direito humano à educa??o
Branco, Sergio;
Sur. Revista Internacional de Direitos Humanos , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S1806-64452007000100007
Abstract: throughout the 20th century, the development of new technologies gradually narrowed the distance between man, cultural work and intellectual property; this peaked with the advent of the internet in the mid-90s. access to works from all over the world has enormously increased the possibilities of disseminating knowledge and the materials for education and, at the very least, has also helped form a global community. nevertheless, the owners of intellectual property copyrights, brands, patents may not use them indiscriminately. therefore, in general terms, what i propose to analyze in this article is how the current copyright structure and the improper use of technology poses a serious threat to the implementation of the human right to education. i shall draw primarily on brazilian law, although some comments will be useful to understand the system in other countries, as well as to draft the copyright goals that need to be pursued.
Sistemas de informa??o em saúde no nível local
Branco, Maria Alice Fernandes;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 1996, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X1996000200016
Abstract: information systems have assumed paramount importance in modern society, becoming an strategic resource of power in all areas. therefore, it is important that the process of decentralization of the health sector should not be limited to services, but should also consider the decentralization of information. the author discusses the sharing of political and technical responsibility between various governmental spheres, and the need to rethink and redirect the process of making accessible information on health. this is a matter of overcoming vertical relations between government and society and of moving toward cooperative management capable of minimizing regional inequalities and optimizing the utilization of resources.

Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 1996,
Abstract: A importancia que a informa o vem assumindo na sociedade moderna transformou-a em recurso estatégico de poder em todas as áreas. é fundamental, portanto, que o processo de descentraliza o no setor saúde n o se restrinja a a es em servi os, mas contemple também a descentraliza o da informa o. A autora discute o compartilhamento da responsabilidade política e técnica entre esferas governamentais e a necessidadede de repensar e redirecionar a es no tocante ao processo de descentraliza o da informa o em saúde. Trata-se de superar a prática da rela o vertical entre esferas de governo, e caminhar no sentido da parceria gerencial, capaz de contribuir para minimizar as desigualdades regionais e otimizar a utiliza o de recursos.

Barata, Lívia Fernandes;Branco, Anete;
Revista CEFAC , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-18462010000100018
Abstract: background: children with down's syndrome show a retard in language acquisition and develop inarticulateness distress. this delay has been attributed to the physical and environmental characteristics that have a negative impact on the development process. characterizing articulation aspects of subjects with down syndrome may provide a better understanding of the changes addressed in rehabilitation in their different ways and contribute to the development therapy. for this reason, we decided to focus in greater depth in one of the most important communication aspects, the articulation. purpose: characterize the inarticulateness distress found in subjects with down syndrome by means of a literature review, focusing on the importance of early intervention before such circumstances. conclusion: lack of stimulation or late treatment will affect the development phonoarticulatory, thus, through early intervention it will be possible to obtain better results, causing major problems to become minimal disturbances.

Abstract: Faz-se necessário uma busca de elementos que venham a facilitar a compreens o das origens do significante lacaniano, na tentativa de esclarecer, pela via do estruturalismo lingüístico, até onde vai, realmente, a influência saussuriana. Sabe-se que o significante lacaniano, mesmo tendo como referência epistemológica o significante saussuriano, ambos n o devem ser confundidos. Normalmente se atribui a Ferdinand de Saussure a inven o da teoria do signo. Ressaltaremos, entretanto, que essa “inven o” é bem anterior às teorias do lingüista genebrino. Levaremos em conta as observa es de Jean-Luc Nancy e Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, na medida em que esses autores demonstram que o deslocamento operado sobre o esquema saussuriano n o vai depender, como comumente se pensa, da autonomia do significante. Verificaremos, portanto, até que ponto mostra-se legítimo o uso do termo significante na teoria lacaniana. A search of elements becomes necessary to facilitate the understanding of the origins of the Lacan′s significant, in the attempt to explain through structural linguistic, the limits of the Saussure′s influence. It is known that the Lacan′s significant, even though has the Saussure′s influence as a reference in epistemology, both “significant” must not be mistaken. It is usually attributed to Ferdinand de Saussure the invention of the theory of the linguistic sign. We will stand out, however, that this “invention” is previous to the theories of the genevan linguist. We will observe the comments of Jean-Luc Nancy and Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, to the point where these authors demonstrate that the displacement operated on the Saussure′s scheme will not depend on, as it is well known, the significant’s autonomy. It will be verified, therefore, how legitimate it is, the use of the significant′s term in the Lacan′s theory.
