VIEIRA, Gabriela Pagano  e  DELLAZZANA-ZANON, Letícia Lovato. Life Purpose in Adolescence: a Systematic Review of Literature. Gerais, Rev. Interinst. Psicol. [online]. 2020, vol.13, n.3, pp. 1-12. ISSN 1983-8220.

Adolescence is a period of fruitful development for building life purposes. It is known that adolescents who have life purposes are happier and are less likely to engage in risky behaviors. In order to analyze the research carried out with the theme of adolescents' life purposes, a systematic review of the national literature was carried out in the period 2004-2014, based on the databases linked to the BVS-Psi. A total of 275 articles were identified, of which 12 were analyzed. There was a prevalence of qualitative studies, with expressive use of semi-directed interviews and workshops, and few articles using quantitative methodology. This result is in accordance with the literature, which indicates little use of scales and questionnaires to study the life purposes of adolescents, pointing to the need to propose quantitative instruments that can evaluate life purposes in large populations of adolescents.
