Children in difficulty

In this section you can find contents concerning children who experience or have experienced conditions of difficulty, marginalization and violence and are therefore more likely to experience a problematic development. These complex situations often give rise to even greater discomfort and social marginalization, to aggressiveness towards peers and adults, to a spiral of violence generating more violence, and to bullying. Children  experiencing such situations often end up in the juvenile justice system, as either child offenders or victims.

In this section you can search for different types of materials, starting from those representing the legal foundations on this topic and concerning the juvenile penitentiary system, the conditions of children in detention and  children of detained parents, as well as the topic of juvenile justice from a more general perspective.

You can also find contents concerning the complex topics of drug, alcohol and gambling addictions and child labour.
