psychological approach could affect a socially challenged neighbourhood and participants´
perceptions of involvement (young boys, 12–16 years). A social research experiment lasting
2 years was co-created between researchers, practitioners and participants. A multi-method
approach was used to ensure that thorough and socially robust knowledge was produced.
Methods used included questionnaires, interviews, fieldwork and observations. Although several
notable results emerged throughout the intervention period, the most important results
were related to the significance of the overall approach regarding these results. Despite the
challenges faced by researchers, when engaging youth at the margins of society in a co-creation
process, the approach seemed valuable. Giving the participants the possibility to engage themselves,
through empowerment initiatives, seems to be a confounding reason for the success of
the project. Hence, this article will focus upon the benefits of using a community psychological
approach when working with exercise psychology in a socially deprived community."
