Resumen

GONCALVES-DE FREITAS, Maribel. Adolescents as Agents of Social Transformation: Reflections for Social Community Psychologists. Psykhe [online]. 2004, vol.13, n.2, pp.131-142. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282004000200010.

Adolescence has frequently been assumed as a phase with increased vulnerability to risk factors present in the environment, which is why many social projects aimed at this population are oriented to the prevention of difficulties such as teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, truancy and delinquency. This article, without loosing sight of the importance of prevention programs, argues in favor of creating more projects of adolescent participation that emphasize their strengths and their capacities to impact their environment as social agents. Experiences with a participative orientation and which seek to develop the youngster's social agency provide a starting point for these reflections. Some suggestions and key points to consider by social community psychologists that work with this population, from this perspective, are presented.
