Resumen

BOETTO, Carolina  y  ARACENA, Marcela. Exploratory Study About the View of Health in a Group of Male Adolescents Who Have Dropped Out of School in Santiago, Chile: Their Needs, Aspirations, Priorities, and Proposals. Psykhe [online]. 2005, vol.14, n.2, pp.63-79. ISSN 0718-2228.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-22282005000200006.

The article provides some insights regarding the challenges involved in approaching male adolescents who have dropped out of school, from the perspective of health, considering that for decades they have been ignored as a focus of attention. It is relevant to understand their own dynamics in order to develop effective promotion and prevention strategies. A relational descriptive-analytical design was chosen, using a qualitative approach, with an intentional sample of 41 male adolescents. A semistructured interview with focused thematic areas was designed and the Grounded Theory model was used to gather and analyze the data. The results contribute to an understanding of the way a group of male adolescents view health, constructing a comprehensive general model based on their split health experience.

Palabras clave : health; male adolescent; school dropout; aspirations.
