Subjectivities, intersectionalities and implications in the research and occupational intervention with adolescent mothers

Abstract

This reflection article aims to answer the question: What are the implications, subjectivities and intersectionalities, from a feminist stance, present in the investigation and occupational intervention with adolescent mothers? For this purpose, the viewpoints of “Las Mercedes” (name that refers to adolescent mothers under State protection; their stories and life expe- riences) will be presented for dialogue, together with my own viewpoint as an occupational therapist as a researcher and intervener. The article addresses topics such as intersectionali- ties, ideas of employment and of being a woman, among other aspects, creating the challen- ge of the research/intervention from a decolonial posture in the hope that we can recogni- zing the subjectivities we have from being part of a system and, in this manner, discuss and cooperatively build knowledge under the light of the unveiled positionalities.
