This chapter describes the implementation of the Module to Support the Management of Social Risk (MSGR) among Children and Adolescents, a computer program created to help Spanish professionals and people working with children make decisions about appropriate interventions in the face of situations that may affect a child’s development or well-being. Development of the software in the Spanish context is discussed, as well as its translation, adaptation and validation for the Brazilian context. 41 references.
