Abstract
This work presents researches developed at the Center for Studies and Research in Adolescence, at the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, with adolescents who live in situations of social vulnerability. Risk and protection factors in the development of adolescents that live away from their families, in the streets and/or institutionalized in shelters, are discussed. Based on the framework of the Bio-ecological Approach for Human Development and the Positive Psychology, the methodology that has been used in these studies, mainly qualitative and with the ecological engagement of the researchers in different contexts is presented. The instruments used have been adapted to the needs of a chronological approach study which investigates the past, present and future of the adolescents, aiming to detect time changes and its influence along their development. The studies have allowed characterizing the social and physical contexts where the adolescents are engaged and the risk and protective factors that permeate their stories. We can observe, on one hand, the transitoriness and precariousness in the life of these adolescents, and on the other hand, the emotional relationships established in the new context of development that bring a sense of positive adaptation leading to resilience processes. Thus, it is discussed the importance of new affective relationships, the role of the social and emotional support network, the adolescent’s future plans, their engagement in their own community spaces and other actions that might help them overcome the vulnerable situation.

Keywords: adolescents, vulnerability, risk, resilience.
