Assistance and care provided for teenage pregnancies in the family, in public policies and in the society: a literature review
Keywords:Teenage Pregnancy, Family, Society, Policies
AbstractThe present article intends to analyze teenage pregnancies observing the ways in which families, policies and society have been taking care of these young women. To achieve this, a systematic review of the national scientific literature was carried out, and the main databases were accessed between the years of 1998 and 2008. The results showed that communication was difficult between each of the three studied spheres and the adolescents, a fact that has produced a deficit in the orientation of these young women, who have not been finding in their family, in society or in public policies, the clarity they need in order to make conscientious and assertive choices. Furthermore, many studies have suggested coping strategies to face difficulties related to teenage pregnancies, although few of the findings have been applied to real actions or projects. It is clear that adolescence, as well as pregnancies during this period, still occupy a confusing position concerning families, policies and society. Particularly in Brazil, the role that each of these spheres play when it comes to taking care of and assisting this population is not clear.
