Adolescent health promotion based on community-centered arts education. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Jan-Feb;71(1):26-33 Authors: Farre AGMDC, Pinheiro PNDC, Vieira NFC, Gubert FDA, Alves MDDS, Monteiro EMLM Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the contribution of arts education to health promotion of adolescents in situations of urban social vulnerability. METHOD: Participatory evaluative research, with a qualitative approach, using as a reference the theoretical constructs of Paulo Freire's Conscientization and the Empowerment Evaluation as a method of collecting with adolescents and teachers of an arts education program in the field of the Family Health Strategy. RESULTS: Participants constructed a collective mission that represented the concept of adolescent health promotion. Arts education activities were prioritized and ranked with a mission focus, and over a three-month period, the program implemented health goals through art. In the reevaluation, the group presented a broad look at the implementation of activities and self-determination for change. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: Arts education is a potential space for nurses to act in the conscientization and empowerment of adolescent health in Primary Health Care. PMID: 29324941 [PubMed - in process]
