Abstract

Abstract: Marginalised young people in South Africa experience multiple-overlapping health challenges and yet are often excluded from being involved in developing interventions addressing their needs. In this talk I will describe a theoretically informed practical approach to the co-development of a violence prevention intervention with young South African, practitioners and academics, and reflect on the successes and challenges of this work.  

This third talk will be delivered by Dr Andrew Gibbs, Senior Lecturer within the Psychology Department at the University of Exeter
