SILVA, Aline Gomes da; RODRIGUES, Thais Christina do Lago  y  GOMES, Katia Varela. Adolescence, vulnerability and drug abuse: harm reduction as a prevention strategy. Rev. psicol. polít. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.33, pp. 335-354. ISSN 1519-549X.

This article presents the results of a Scientific Initiation Research that investigates the effects of the Harm Reduction approach in reference to the choices and risk perception related to drug abuse and conflicts experienced by adolescents in a vulnerable situation. The research took place at a school in the state of Sao Paulo, based on a methodology of action-research and the theory of Operative Groups. Close to 80 students between the ages of fourteen and sixteen, the pedagogical team, and teachers participated in the research. There were conflictive themes found through analysis of the group's situations, they are as follows: responsibility vs. fun/enjoyment, the adults' lack of reliability towards the adolescents, sex, drugs, respect and stereotypes. The fact that the adolescents were free to express their thoughts made a significant contribution towards our proposals and reflection, enabling greater adhesion. The change of roles, provided for the methodology, contributed to a possible revision of the pre-conceived concepts.

Palabras clave : Adolescence; Drugs; Vulnerability; Harm Reduction; Groups.
