    The UN systemwide Guidelines on Safer Cities and Human Settlements promotes the integration of crime prevention policies in broader urban strategies and interventions, underpinned by the principle of the Co-production of safety for all and ‘neighbourhood’ as a frame for action. While presenting publications on the safer cities 25+ experiences and a guide to neighbourhood implementation, this session will reflect on integrated safer cities programming with a whole of government approach, anchored in mayoral leadership and municipal technical coordination with community based interventions.

    The incidence of with an absent father is becoming more frequent globally. The aim of this study was to explore and describe the perceptions of the experiences of a group of ten adolescent boys from father absent homes in a low socio-economic area of the Western Cape, South Africa. The participants comprised ten adolescent boys from a selected school in the area. The boys were selected from grades 8,9 and 10. The participants were selected purposively although participation in the study was voluntary and parental consent was required. A qualitative methodology was used and data were collected by means of structured interviews a focus group discussion and construction of a collage. The findings showed a correlation between at–risk youth behaviour and a number of identifiable factors, including low self-esteem, gang membership, violence, crime and academic underachievement. This could be a direct result of growing up without a father figure or positive male role model.

    In South africa, and many countries across the world, youth are often the victims and perpetrators of violence. Often society wishes to impose punitive measures to ensure redress. However, the academy over the last 23 years have begun to understand very deeply that many youth who are perpetrators of violence, have suffered deep and complex trauma. A holistic approach that recognises the whole human being and seeks to assist in excavating trauma, provides the best approach to ensuring that youth remain on a positive developmental trajectory, as it fosters connection with self, others and the environment. This healing centred approach places youth and their potential at the centre. It uses young peer as peer youth instructors, and the power of nature to cultivate wholeness, wellbeing and resilience. A healing-centred approach also recognises the need for a continuum of support and ongoing practice as it ensures that youth can change their embodiment from one of fear and sujugation to one of freedom and joy.
