LEVANDOWSKI, Daniela Centenaro; ANTONI, Clarissa de; KOLLER, Sílvia Helena  and  PICCININI, Cesar Augusto. Fatherhood in adolescent and the risk and the protective factors for violence in father-child interaction. Interações [online]. 2002, vol.7, n.13, pp. 77-100. ISSN 1413-2907.

This article brings a theoretical review about the adolescent fatherhood and its implications for the father-child interaction, specially the eventual risks for violent behaviors. Some topics relative to adolescent father-child interaction and risk and protective factors for violence in this interaction are discussed. Individual, relational and contextual factors of the father and the child are mentioned in the literature like possible influences in these phenomena. Although some researches found risks of violence in situations involving adolescent fatherhood, there is few studies and evidences that support this fact. The violence is a multidimensional phenomenon, and although the adolescent fatherhood can contribute to his occurrence, many protective factors can coexist, impeding the occurrence of violence in these situations.

Keywords : Adolescence; Fatherhood; Violence; Interaction father-child.
