LEISURE INTERVENTION IN ADOLESCENCE AND POSITIVE DEVELOPMENT

This paper is focused on psychological intervention in adolescence aimed to promote positive development which is conceived in terms of involvement in pro-social behaviors and of avoiding risk behaviors that may compromise adolescents health and future. In this sense, a conceptual framework about leisure and adolescence is presented and the aims for psychological intervention are pointed out. As an illustration, the authors present a program implemented in Portugal with groups of adolescents entitled "Growing up with leisure...". This paper discusses also the need of intentionality in psychological intervention aimed to promote positive development, particularly in the school context.
