Youth violence is one of the most visible forms of violence. Assault, deadly or not, perpetrated by young people contribute greatly worldwide total number of premature deaths, injuries and disabilities. This violence results in serious damage not only to the victims but also for families, friends and communities.
There are close links between youth violence and other forms of violence. Violent youth often commit a series of crimes and display other social and psychological problems.
It is estimated that in 2000, 199,000 young people have been killed worldwide, equivalent to death every day 565 children 10 to 29 years due to interpersonal violence. Homicide rates among young people, however, vary greatly from one region or country to another and almost everywhere, they are much lower in girls than in boys.
For each person killed in an episode of violence, 20-40 receive injuries requiring hospitalization.
The studies we showed that drunkenness is an important immediate situational factor that can cause violent reactions.
In episodes of violence leading to non-fatal injuries, firearms are much less used than in fatal attacks: the attacker more frequently resort to fists, feet, knives or to sticks.
Physical fighting and bullying or harassment are also more common among young people. A study of school children in 27 countries found that the majority of 13 year olds in most countries in the study had exercised bullying or harassing others at least occasionally.
The main individual factors related to personality and behavior that can associate with youth violence are:
• insufficient self-control
• attention problems
• a history of aggressive behavior
• a low level of education.
The family environment plays a fundamental role in the development of violent behavior in young people. A number of family factors are associated with youth violence: inadequate supervision of children by parents, hard corporal punishment to discipline children from parental conflict in early
Children insufficient attachment between parents and children a mother who had her first child too young separation or divorce of parents at a young age low family cohesion low socio-economic level.
It was also associated with violence among young people with delinquent peers.
Factors such as income inequality, rapid demographic change in young populations and urbanization have been linked to the development of youth violence. Cultures that do not offer non-violent solutions to conflict seem to know a higher frequency of violence among young people.
As part of this project, we want to work on this issue with young people from 17 to 20 years, from so-called sensitive areas or experiencing a recurrence of this phenomenon in their immediate environment. One approach, through drawing, is attempted to curb violent behavior of young people. Our intervention tool will be drawing to change the skills, attitudes and personal beliefs. It is implemented and designed to help young people to control their anger, resolve conflicts and try to identify the sources of violence, put a word to best combat it.
Of citizenship education workshops will be held during the exchange.
In practice, it generally trigger a more or less serious (harassment in the schoolyard, deliberate act of violence, for example.) For one concrete plans to implement a prevention, we the plans and realizes that.
As part of this project, the attacks of Charlie Hebdo and urban violence will serve as the framework for this project.
We want to enable young people to develop tools that allow them to externalize their feelings in relation to the violence and put a word through drawing. We organize this meeting between young around the central theme of violence as a tool of expression with the drawing, in the city of Comics ie ANGOULEME. And it will bring together 50 participants from France, Italy, Turkey and the Czech Republic. It will take place from 14 to 21 September 2015.
