FONSECA, Adriana Dora da; GOMES, Vera Lúcia de Oliveira  and  TEIXEIRA, Karina Correa. Perception of adolescents about an educative action in sexual orientation conducted by nursing academics'.. Esc. Anna Nery [online]. 2010, vol.14, n.2, pp.330-337. ISSN 1414-8145.

That is an exploratory and descriptive study with qualitative approach, which aimed to find the perception of adolescents on the sexual orientation actions in a public school from the inner of Rio Grande do Sul and to identify the actions' fragilities and potentials. Fifteen high school students, at the age of 15 to 17 years were the informers of this research. Data were collected in August of 2008 by interviews and they were observed by the thematic content analysis. It was possible to find that students approve this kind of work because the most part of them related the importance it has in their lives, mainly due to the absence of dialog with the family. Potentials of the project were found, as the use of participative methodology which is able to promote a climate of homelike and productive work, providing larger involvement and learning.
