GONCALVES, Yadja do Nascimento  and  GOMES, Annatália Meneses de Amorim. Sociodrama with adolescents: revelations in health care. Rev. bras. psicodrama [online]. 2013, vol.21, n.2, pp.41-52. ISSN 2318-0498.

Adolescence is a stage of social development, the phase of identity development and affirmation of the individual’s autonomy, these conditions being vital for the practice of citizenship, multiple rights and health care. Using a sociodramatic frame of reference, this study aims to understand the perceptions of adolescents of their experience of adolescence. It is therefore a qualitative intervention in the area of health with adolescent-patients of a pediatric outpatient unit in a public hospital. This sociometric proposal offers reflection on the professional practice from an integrative perspective of adolescence within the public health. It emphasizes the importance of this method in hospital settings as a facilitator of individuals’ free expression, and the redemption of autonomy and agency in self care.

Keywords : Sociodrama; Adolescence; Hospital psychology.
