SALLES, Leila Maria Ferreira; SILVA, Joyce Mary Adam de Paula e  and  FONSECA, Débora Cristina. Violence and social inclusion of young people in urban periphery. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.3, pp. 58-68. ISSN 1516-3687.

This paper aims to examine methods of social inclusion of young people belonging to disadvantaged social strata of the population in the community where they live. Focused groups were conducted with young people who differed on the role of situations of violence. The analysis indicates that young people considered protagonists of violence tend to distance themselves from not protagonists in the activities that they do, in places they frequent, during leisure activities and also differ about the future life expectations. The study shows that the interactions approach between these youth groups are guided by similar lifestyles and detachment is instituted by the exacerbation of particular interests and the emphasis on the difference.

Keywords : youth; violence; social integration; community; urban periphery.
