MISSIO, Joana et al. "Crazy Life": experiences of youngsters in contexts of exclusion and violence. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2020, vol.15, n.2, pp. 1-16. ISSN 1809-8908.

This article addresses a qualitative research of longitudinal character, in which five youngsters who were from an Open School participated. They starred a documentary, in 2012, in which they talked about their experiences, and after four years they were contacted for the second stage of the study, carried out through semi-structured interviews. Thus, it aims to understand the crossings of the "Crazy Life" style in their trajectories. The results point to elements that seem to characterize the "Crazy Life": violence, own language, troubled relationship with police. Further more, the youngsters manifested desires and life projects belonging to a "non-Crazy Life", concerning stability and security, such as constituting family and being employed. The "Crazy Life" is highlighted as a "social inclusion in reverse", as well as the importance of the ethical commitment on the part of the professionals and researchers in understanding more reflective and less exclusive perspectives.
