Process Indicators: Specific interim steps / Milestones I
A first interim step has been formulated: the gang members are ready to speak about the background to their violent actions. "OK, great," says one project worker, "maybe they even boast about it! This still doesn't bring us much further towards our aim of getting them to stop using violence". "Actually, it's a big step forwards," says another. "Then we find out directly from them how meaningful the assumptions are that we made in our situation analysis. Based on all of the conversations we had beforehand and our own analysis of the situation we made some good guesses about the reasons why they use violence, but it's only now that we can find out what reasons are important to them. Nonetheless, you are right to ask: Can really make more progress if we reach this milestone?"
The team realises that there are two very different aspects that need consideration: "alternatives to violence" and "acknowledgement of responsibility for harm done" both seem urgent and important, especially when we remember that the victims' families are seeking revenge.
- Answer a) is correct, since we can safely assume that lack of opportunity in life is the reason why they become violent.
- Answer b) is correct because the list is drawn up by the actors themselves and they really have to confront the issue to do this.
- Answer c) is correct, since the use of violence often occurs when people don't know that there are alternatives.
