Abstract

In this article we wish to systematize and present to an international

audience the state of the arts in preventive practices aimed at young people

in the field of gender violence and an accompanying policy framework in

the specific context of Catalonian society. This article is the result of the

research we are carrying out in the Gap Project for training professionals

working with the youth around gender violence. We will justify at the onset

the extreme importance of this topic by presenting some evidence of the

grave situation for young people on this issue. We shall then continue with

a critical contextualization of state legislation in order to proceed to

highlight the differences and similarities of other regional proposals. We

end our presentation by critically analyzing a selection of preventive

resources directed to the youth as developed in the Catalonian context.
