This paper analyzes the phenomenon of desistance from crime by deviant young people in some Sicilian cities. In these paths, individual and relational reflexivity is central. This is an original study, which focuses on the importance of the role of social workers as actors capable of strengthening the socio-educational rehabilitation pathways of deviant young people. The author demonstrates how the presence of relational reflexivity in the intervention of social workers and social services contributes to (re)activating in young people an individual reflexivity (proactive, responsible, prosocial) capable of directing them towards objectives of personal growth and adult responsibility.
