Prevención de la violencia: hechos y mitos

Luis Fernández Ríos, Francisco Javier Rodríguez Díaz*

Universidad de Santiago de Compostela, * Universidad de Oviedo

El objetivo del trabajo es realizar un análisis de las posibilidades reales de llegar a vivir en una sociedad libre de violencia. Se analizan las relaciones entre cultura, medios de comunicación, videojuegos y estilos de vida violentos. Se parte del supuesto de que a no ser violento se aprende. Este es el objetivo de muchos programas de prevención. La meta de llegar a vivir en una sociedad libre de violencia es un mito. En la sociedad del riesgo los estilos de vida violentos forman parte del entramado cultural. El afán por detectar individuos en riesgo de emitir comportamientos violentos puede tener efectos secundarios negativos. Aquí se enmarca el análisis de algunos de los fracasos de intervención relevantes dentro de la ciencia de la prevención de la violencia.

Prevention of violence; Facts and myths. The aim of the study is to analyse the real possibilities of managing to live in a society free of violence. The aspects analysed are the connections among culture, the media, videogames and violent life-styles. We have started from the assumption that not being violent can be learnt. This is the aim of many prevention programmes. The goal of living in a society free of violence is a myth. Is a risky society the violent ways of life are a part of the cultural network. The desire for detecting individuals at risk for violent behaviours may have negative side effects. Here is included the analysis of some of the outstanding intervention failures inside the science of the prevention of violence.
