Study includes a thorough analysis on youth and the question of the constitution of their own space of each

São Paulo is a sprawling metropolis that is home to thousands of young people who live alone. From various places, experience a unique experience, which was the subject matter of the dissertation The house in the city: A Jungian reading experience of young people who live alone in Sao Paulo, presented by Gustavo Person at the Institute of Psychology (IP ) USP. One result of the study shows that youth, defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the period between 20 and 29 years, in fact it is like a different stage of life, with its own dynamics, and it deserves attention .

20 to 29 years: youth have their own dynamics that deserves attention Among these dynamics, the most characteristic is the safety-axis freedom raised by sociologists like Zygmunt Bauman and Richard Sennett. The young, more mature than the teen gradually migrates toward freedom space, making home ownership, but it brings huge insecurity. Over time, the house itself becomes itself a source of security and focus. This axis of freedom, security alternates all the time in the life of the young, unlike the adult, more mature, which tends to establish the safety of professional achievements and relationships already established. For the young, everything is a new adventure.

The research was conducted between the years 2011 and 2013, and emerged from the personal experience of the researcher. When he started working on the dissertation, a young person was also in the beginning of his career, who lived alone and drew a life independent of their parents. At that point, he noticed a contradiction: his condition was also common to many people, but the issue of transition from adolescence to adulthood was not explored by psychology.

The study includes a thorough analysis on youth and the question of the constitution of their own space of each, the symbolism pertaining to the establishment of the town house. The survey was conducted from reading the analytical psychology of CG Jung, as well as works of philosophy, sociology and architecture. There were also interviews with six young people, 20-29 years old, invited through the network of personal contacts of the researcher. The dialogues included visits to their homes and making their homes photographic material produced by the subjects. Throughout the process, Person was surprised by the dialogue between these different areas analyzed, and more: Also surprising was the rigidity of academia regarding the methods that explore the subjectivity of the human as a long bureaucratic process for approving projects this thematic study.

<b> Generation Y </ b>

I wish people would understand the importance of the topic. In the media, there are shallow debates on what they call Generation Y young people born between the late 1970s and mid-1990s - and a number of professionals trying vigorously, jovens.Parece understand that we are in a transition into the labor market, so it is imperative that academia study so deep, and open to dialogue with society, the issue of youth and how it is constituted. This can be a door to find ways for a number of important issues that youth: employment, career, drugs, sexuality, relationship with other generations, among others.
