The process of street-leaving among street youths
This study aims at exploring the process of street-leaving among street youths. The researcher uses qualitative research methods to carry out in-depth interviews with 10 young men who have had street experience in the past. The researcher also participates in field observation to collect information regarding the juveniles’ street-leaving process. Initially, the researcher takes part in the juveniles’ lives by studying their individual street processes, and by analyzing their street life and the process of street life style change. Furthermore, the researcher divides the juveniles’ leaving street process into four stages: entering street life, opting to leave the street, returning to the streets, and leaving the streets successfully. The researcher then divides street life into two periods: period of leaving the street and period of street life style change. We can understand the juveniles’ street life experiences through each stage and period. Applying the containment theory, we can also discuss the causes of leaving the street, or the forces that make them to return to the streets. Through the process of street life style change, we can understand the individual experiences of street youths. Finally, the researcher puts forward multi-perspective of street issues to discuss how families, social workers and other important supporting systems exert their functions to affect the juveniles’ selection of street-leaving process and the feasibility of implementation. To conclude, the study makes recommendations for further research on strengthening and constructing the community's new concept. Moreover, the researcher also proposes that by providing preventive services, enthusiasm intervention, case management, and advocacy, to respective juveniles according to their street experience, we can further promote the rights of street youth at our best effort.
