ARRAIS, Rebecca Holanda; GOMES, Isabel Cristina  e  CAMPOS, Elisa Maria Parahyba. Single parenthood by choice and its psychosocial aspects: an integrative review study. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.1, pp. 39-53. ISSN 1677-2970.

Single parenthood is traditionally related to abandonment or widowhood, but contemporaneously it is observed the development of single-parent families by choice. The objective of this research was to review the academic production about the psychosocial aspects involved in this choice. An integrative review of the articles published between 2008 and 2018 was carried out in the databases: Scopus, Medline, Web of science, SciELO, Lilacs, BVS and Dedalus. The initial survey presented 77 results, remaining 20 in the final selection. With the prevalence of qualitative field researches, studies were carried out only with the female population and from economically developed centers. It is concluded that the single-parent families by choice emerge in a scenario of changes in family organization and the role played by women in society, between tradition and innovation, between women's empowerment and disability in interpersonal relationships.
