CANDREVA, Ana  and  PALADINO, Celia. Health care: social "anchorage" construction. Qualitative aprpoach. Univ. Psychol. [online]. 2005, vol.4, n.1, pp. 55-62. ISSN 1657-9267.

As a part of a mayor research this study outlines the concern of investigate social representations regarding care health and the anchorage process of construction. We believe that the role of the culture is decisive at the time to adopt a style of health care. Theoretical analysis about culture-health care implies three issues: 1. Behaviors are emboiled in cultural scripts. 2. Health-care reveals behavioral paradoxes. 3. Gender perspective. Empirical data were obtain from a pilot sample of women all of which are residents in La Plata, Argentina. The personal interview was modeled on the semiestructured clinical interview.

Keywords : Heath care; Social representations; Anchorage; Qualitative research.
