PEREIRA, Viviane Ribeiro et al. Participatory methodologies in research with children: creative and innovative approaches. Rev. Gaúcha Enferm. [online]. 2016, vol.37, n.spe, e67908.  Epub May 18, 2017. ISSN 1983-1447.


To describe the use of participatory methodologies in research with children.


Experience report with a qualitative approach, conducted with children between six and eleven years of age, from a municipal school in Pelotas and in the Psychosocial Children and Youth Care Center, in São Lourenço do Sul, both municipalities of the Rio Grande do Sul State. Data collection was based on records made in field and observation diaries, held from April to July 2016.


The report pointed out that the Photovoice promoted motivation in the group, in addition to increasing the self-esteem and self-confidence of children. The Five Field Map made it possible to help children express feelings through the game.


Photovoice and the Five Field Map are seen as tools that enable new methodological approaches in research with children, facilitating the construction of the proposed activities aimed at innovative and creative research processes in health/nursing.
