IERVOLINO, Solange A.  and  PELICIONI, Maria Cecília F.. Teacher Training for Health Promotion and Education in School: an experience report. Rev. bras. crescimento desenvolv. hum. [online]. 2005, vol.15, n.2, pp. 99-110. ISSN 0104-1282.

This project, developed during thirty months in Vargem Grande Paulista, state of São Paulo, had the objective of training Primary and Secondary School teachers to develop the Health Education process, together with their students. A questionnaire was used with open and closed questions and a focus group technique, with results being analyzed quali-quantitatively. It began with a situational diagnosis producing "generative themes": Health Promotion School, Observation of School-aged Children, Accident Prevention, among others. These enabled the discussion on health in an integral way and the establishment of the latter's relationship to the environment. The second stage consisted of process evaluation. As a result, the training, carried out based on the idea of health as synonymous with quality of life, provided teachers with the possibility of reviewing their concepts of health and health education, as well as their role as agents of health promotion and illness prevention. It was also seen that they became trained to develop the studied themes in a transversal way.
