The article presents an operational model for conducting protected meetings in neutral space, based on the experience of a territorial neuropsychiatric team that involved 55 mi-nors, with positive clinical and family history for exposure to single or multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE). The procedure has been based on the systemic-relational and ecological model and on social learning. For the ex post evaluation, the case series were split into two groups, depending on whether the protocol was used or not. The analysis of the data showed significant results regarding the efficacy on the outcomes of the pathways (p < .05) and the optimization of the intervention times (p < .01).
