ROSSATO, Lucas  and  SOUZA, Tatiana Machiavelli Carmo. Psychology and adolescents in conflict with the law: reflections from the internship. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2014, vol.15, n.1, pp. 112-122. ISSN 1677-2970.

The practice of unlawful activities may lead the teenager to be under correctional measures. The development of assertive actions within this population has proven itself as a challenge. This paper presents an internship experience report carried out in the Supervised Freedom Program, at the Specialised Social Assistance Reference Centre, in a county in the southwest of Goiás. Teenage students were offered the opportunity to voluntarily participate in open groups organized by Psychology interns, as a way of facing part of disciplinary measures with a socio-educative nature. The group, formed by 15 students, aimed at discussing emotional and social issues experienced in adolescence during 12 meetings between November 2012 and March 2013. The topics covered were suggested by the participants and included issues about family, social reintegration, identity, prejudice and drugs. The experience, in addition to contributing to the process of professional training of the interns, has provided a rich context that established new meanings for acts performed by the adolescents, as well as collaborated to the development of new life projects.
