SAVEGNAGO, Sabrina Dal Ongaro; FARAJ, Suane Pastoriza; ARPINI, Dorian Mônica  and  SIQUEIRA, Aline Cardoso. Workshops with girls in an open school: space for dialogue, reflection and recognition of singularity. Temas psicol. [online]. 2015, vol.23, n.2, pp. 467-480. ISSN 1413-389X.

This study presents an experience report of actions accomplished through an extension Project entitled "Workshops with adolescents in an open school: Discussing about violence, sexuality, drugs and life projects". The project was developed by a team of teachers - psychology advisors, psychology masters students and undergraduate students. The workshops were accomplished with 12-17 years old girls, in a school located in the interior of Rio Grande do Sul. It is a governmental institution that works as an open school, where students from 10 to 18 years old develop activities. Those students had their life trajectories characterized by several fragilities, such as use of drugs and exposure to violence. Therefore, the development of the workshops aimed to offer spaces of dialogue and reflection, in the sense of providing moments of working through negative experiences, besides enabling the construction of projects of life. In the fortnightly workshops with the adolescents, several significant subjects arose. Among them, family relationships, violence, sexuality, and especially pregnancy in adolescence and projects of life were highlighted. Such topics will be focus of discussion throughout the article. The evaluation of the activities evidences that the workshops were a moment of reflection about the present and plans for the future.
