ERDMANN, Alacoque Lorenzini et al. Managing an investigative experience in the promotion of "healthy living" in a social inclusion project. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.2, pp. 369-377. ISSN 0104-0707. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072009000200022.
This is a management report of an investigative experience by researchers carrying out an action-study by means of educational workshops and the health promotion along with young people who take part in a social inclusion project, located in one of the hills of Greater Florianópolis-SC, Brasil. Intervening in reality based on the meaning which the social actors themselves attribute to healthy living is an important strategy in the knowledge and health care practice (re)construction process, committed and engaged in the construction of citizenship. Managing the investigative process includes: to collectively exercise knowledge construction; to achieve potential investigative competences in researcher education; to give rise to articulations in social spaces which promote the human growth of the actors in the different ways of being and living their health project. Management of the investigative process in "social laboratories" is challenging faced with the reality of "living life" in search of "healthier living" in conditions which are scarcely favorable to the full exercise of citizenship.
