BENICIO, Luís Fernando de Souza; BARROS, João Paulo Pereira  and  SILVA, Dagualberto Barboza da. Between suffocations and some possible: urban violence and public policies. Rev. Polis Psique [online]. 2018, vol.8, n.3, pp. 129-156. ISSN 2238-152X.

The objective of this article is to problematize the implications of the intensification of lethal violence and challenges to this in the daily life of social workers working in one of the regions with the highest homicide rates in the city of Fortaleza. It is a development of an intervention research, in the light of the cartography method, which analyzed institutional practices around the problem of homicides of adolescents and young people. The data were produced by observations, daily conversations, interviews and discussion groups. The results and discussion section highlights: 1) violence as a strengthening of barriers in the access of professionals to the territories and in the access of the most stigmatized youth to existing services; 2) the challenges of professionals to take violence as an object of action-reflection-action; and 3) the experience of intersectorial discussion groups in Barra do Ceará as a strategy for collectivizing the problem of homicides.

Keywords : urban violence; homicide; youths; intervention research; Social Psychology.
