1 Drug addiction= illness Medical model works is focused on the behaviour with an intervention of physiological kind Epistemologically unfounded (it joins together two different epistemological levels) THE ASSOCIATION “I RAGAZZI DELLA PANCHINA”: THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DISCURSIVE CONFIGURATION THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE DISCURSIVE CONFIGURATION OF “DRUG ADDICT” AND THE RELATION WITH THE TERRITORY Abstract According to the Narrative Paradigm, for which “reality is a discursive configuration generated by discursive practices” (Turchi, 2004), the aim of the research was to describe the discursive practices through which the Association “I Ragazzi della Panchina”, in Pordenone (Italy), contributed to redefine the discursive configuration of “drug addict”, generated by the talkers’ community. The method used for the textual analysis of the texts gathered is MADIT. The results show that the discursive configuration of “drug addict” is built up by the whole speakers’ community. Specifically, through different discursive elements used by people who know/attend the activities of the Association “I Ragazzi della Panchina” and people who do not know/attend them. Sara Checchin, Gilberto Guastalla, Gian Piero Turchi, Alessandro Zamai, Gigi Dal Bon Psychology Department – University of Padova, Italy - METHODOLOGY Strategic lines followed: 1) Analysis of local newspapers: textual analysis of eighty local newspapers about the Association “I Ragazzi della Panchina”, comparing two different periods: from 1995 up to 1999 and from 2000 up to The 2000 is the year in which the Association opened its headquarters in the urban center. 2) Utilization of two questionnaires with open questions, aiming to gather the cognitive modalities used to construct the “drug addict” identity. The questionnaires were given to all the people concurring to the generation of the identity of the “drug addict”, that is not only to the consumer of illegal drugs, but to the citizens in general. More specifically, the sample was composed by 949 citizens of the city of Pordenone: 534 persons knowing the Association and its activities; 389 persons that do not know the Association and its activities; 27 drug consumers frequenting the Association. The textual data were gathered and analyzed with M.A.D.I.T. – Method for the Textual-Computerized Data Analysis (Turchi et al., 2007).

Before the Association was born there was a conflict between different groups within the community: the so-called “drug addicts” and the so-called “normal people” After the Association’s birth, a cultural change started: now there are no more labels such as “drug addicts” and “normal people”: all the people are part of the same community, sharing the responsibility of health promotion on the territory Drug addiction= configuration of reality NARRATIVISTIC PARADIGM according to which “reality is generated by the discursive practices that nominate it as ‘reality’” (Turchi, 2004) Interventions are focused on the dialogical self Epistemologically grounded The efficacy evaluation of interventions with tobacco’s consumers: An action that modifies the discursive configuration, Dalila Barbanera, Gian Piero Turchi & Eleonora Pinto (University of Padua, Italy) The generation of discursive configurations of drug addicts: A comparison between Italy and the Netherlands, Roberto Fumagalli, Simona Fanelli, Dalila Barbanera & Gian Piero Turchi (University of Padua, Italy)
