Over the last years Pereira has been one of the most violent cities in Colombia. This fact had had several impacts on society, and mostly in the youth. Children had been one of the most affected targets with this phenomenon and day to day we can see how they are starting to act and take customs according to the context where they live.
By studying these characteristics and investigating authors, such as Vigotsky, Peter Berger, Thomas Luckman and Chaux, we will be able to understand the influence that this violent context has on childhood from a psychological and sociological point of view. Also, we will search and support our approaches in statistics made by the DANE and Pereira’s local Police.
By taking surveys to some students in “Liceo Campestre de Pereira” we will aim to gather information to support the hypothesis. Also, these students will show us how they act, and, with some studies, in what way they are being influenced by the context. These students must be under fifteen (15), because in this age some aspects from the Antisocial Personality Disorder begin to develop, and we are going to study mainly the childhood.
This context of violence can lead to high antisocial personality disorder development, and by supporting on Chaux we will prove that the “Circle of aggression” is something that keeps the child under a different consciousness. The child begins to accommodate to the moral context in which it coexists, so he will begin to act as his context does and to consider normal the violence in his life. These acts of accommodation and acting according to the context are called “Representatives”.
Violence can have a high impact in people’s development and life. Some of them accommodate to this “normal” type of life, and only a few won’t be influenced in some way the context. The context will always impact on a person’s evolution and even though the context does not determine the subject, the subject participates in it, and somehow it affects his psychological development.
