CASTRO, Angélica Maria Ferreira de Melo  and  TEODORO, Maycoln Leôni Martins. Family relationships of adolescents under socio-constrained freedom: a systematic narrative review. Temas psicol. [online]. 2014, vol.22, n.1, pp. 01-12. ISSN 1413-389X.

The purpose of this article was to realize a narrative review of the relation between the family system and the criminal conduct of adolescents. There were used the data bases: SciELO; LILACS; BVS; PePSIC; PsycNET; APA PsycNET; Science Direct and Web of knowledge (ISI). The search resulted on 19 articles that complied the inclusion criteria. The articles' analysis showed that some family factors are commonly found associated with law infraction and fulfillment of social educative freedom restriction measures by the adolescents. They are: socioeconomics level, family structure, domestic violence; educational practices and parental control, the frailty of family bonds, family members in conflict with the law, and biologic factors. So, it could be stated that when the family doesn't fulfill its protective function, it starts to be seen as a risk factor to the well-being of many children and adolescents.

Keywords : Family relationships; violence; adolescents in conflict with the law.
