Communicative Daily Life Stories and Focus Groups: Proposals for Overcoming Gender Violence among Teenagers
Aubert, Adriana; Melgar, Patricia; Valls, Rosa
Qualitative Inquiry, v17 n3 p295-303 Mar 2011
The scientific literature has identified an attraction toward models of masculinity marked by abuse and domination in teenagers' sexual and affective relationships. Given this reality, greater insight is needed on the mechanisms that lead young people to choose this type of relationship. In theory, different authors argue that as a result of the disassociation between goodness and attractiveness a profound crisis of meaning is found. A study conducted with the Critical Communicative Methodology, particularly, through the use of communicative data collection techniques has led to gather evidences of this crisis, particularly how it is interplayed by the opposition between a language of ethics versus a language of desire. The use of communicative daily life stories and communicative focus groups allowed not only to identify this separation but also those elements that contribute to overcome it.
