Abstract
Research literature abounds with evidence on the factors implicated in the development of deviant and criminal behaviors among adolescents and young adults. It is well known that what leads to children and youth?s criminal behaviors is the result of the complex interplay between individual factors, family circumstances, the sociology of schools, neighborhoods and communities, as well as social and educational policies and programs. It may be argued that although much still needs to be understood about the mechanisms at play, enough is known to inform decision makers and program developers. The Kids in Places Initiative (KIPI) is an international partnership that promotes community resilience and healthy child development through the collaboration of university and governmental partners as well as community organizations. Despite its international scope, KIPI focuses its efforts for the promotion of children?s wellbeing at the local level (i.e.: the community is which the child lives), where intensive efforts are undertaken to measure outcomes of child development, influence policy and program development and advocate for children?s rights. In this presentation we show how the principles of participatory research and inter-sectorial partnership that characterize KIPI are applied to the promotion of healthy child development at the community level. Implications for forensic sociology are also discussed.
