MILANI, Rute Grossi  e  LOUREIRO, Sonia Regina. Families and domestic violence: psychosocial characterization post actions from the child protection agency. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2008, vol.28, n.1, pp. 50-67. ISSN 1414-9893.

The text addresses the family conditions implied in situations of psychosocial risk, focused on domestic violence and its effects on the children’s psychosocial development. The discussion covers the functions and the protection measures used by the Child Protection Agency, based on the evaluations of families that have been notified due to domestic violence three years ago. The research compares the families’ resources and adversities to a group of families with no previous psychosocial risk. Forty families with school-aged children were surveyed. Two groups were arranged (20 children each): families with cases of domestic violence and families with no reported risk. The investigation tecniques included: semi-structured interviews with the familiar environment resources inventory and the adverse events scale. The prevailing types of violence observed were the negligence by parents/guardians followed by physical and psychological violence. Emphasis is given to the differences regarding the occurrence of parent adversity and similarities in the family environment resources.
