SILVA, Ana Dóris da  and  SILVA, Isabela Machado da. Marital relations in the face of multiple stressors: a case study on an involuntary couple therapy. Nova perspect. sist. [online]. 2020, vol.29, n.67, pp. 41-55. ISSN 0104-7841.

This article investigated the experience of conjugality in the context of multiple stressors. A case study was conducted in which a couple who started the therapeutic process participated in the recommendation of the institution in which their children were welcomed. The data were submitted to a narrative analysis and discussed from the systemic approach, to understand the relational dynamics of the couple and reflect on strategies and interventions to be used in this context. The difficulties faced by overlapping multiple stressors, such as alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence, and childcare, stood out. The need for a contextualized therapeutic approach is highlighted.

Keywords : marital relations; institutional shelter; domestic violence; stressors.
