SERAFIM, Tania Maria  e  BORUCHOVITCH, Evely. Basic Education Students´ Conceptions of Help Seeking: Concepciones de los estudiantes de la educación básica. Est. Inter. Psicol. [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.2, pp. 159-171. ISSN 2236-6407.

The national research about help seeking strategy is slim. In this sense, this study investigated the conceptions about help seeking of 60 students of both sexes from 2nd to 4th grade education. Data collection instruments were both a problem-solving hypothetical situation related to help seeking and a structured interview specially developed for this study. The data were examined qualitatively by means of content analysis. Results indicated that help seeking strategy is frequently reported by students to do their academic activities or daily. The request for assistance is expressed verbally. Family members ate the key persons to whom the students seek at the time of difficulty. Data are discussed not only in terms of the need of acknowledging the importance of help seeking strategy, but also in terms of the need to deepen the knowledge about this strategy.
