The aim of this studys is to identify the characteristics of the adolescents as well as their familys social network, regarding socio-bio-demographic aspects and the interns' perception of their familys functioning. The participants were five adolescents in a State institution (FASE-RS) who were also allowed to have external activities. A case study method was used through the making of a social network map and the family's functioning was measured using the global assessment of relational functioning scale (GARF). None of the five adolescents assessed used the work/school quadrant of social network. Three of them only filled the family and friends' quadrants. The total members and institutions included in the social network map varied between six and twelve. The scores on family functioning were low.

Keywords : Adolescent; family; social network; transgressor.
