BARBOSA, Thamires Pereira et al. Psychology in the service network for women in situation of conjugal violence: A systematic review in Latin America. Aletheia [online]. 2021, vol.54, n.1, pp.126-135. ISSN 1413-0394.

ABSTRACT Violence against women is considered worldwide as a public health problem and Latin America has been identified as the region with the highest incidence of this type of violation. This systematic review aims to investigate the Latin American scientific production on care services that include Psychology professionals in their teams for women who have been victims of violence. Searches were carried out in the databases of Scielo, Lilacs and Portal Capes, with the descriptions "violence against women", "domestic violence against women", "psychology", "psicología", "violencia contra las mujeres", "violencia doméstica contra la mujer". Only articles published in Latin America, in Portuguese and Spanish, in the last 5 years, have been considered. In total, 10 studies were analyzed in their entirety. This review showed that there are still gaps in the care network of these cases, which concern not only the role of the psychologist, but also the different areas that make up the networks for the support of women.
