LUCCHESE, Gabrielle dos Santos; AVOGLIA, Hilda Rosa Capelão  e  SILVA, Patrícia Oliveira. The psychodinamics and Ego defense mechanisms in women victims of violence. Bol. - Acad. Paul. Psicol. [online]. 2017, vol.37, n.92, pp.24-39. ISSN 1415-711X.

It was found that the women present themselves excessively immature and vulnerable, being exposed to all kinds of pressure. Furthermore, their Ego is weakened and poorly adapted to the environment, once again distorting reality and favoring violence. Remaining in abusive relationships can be seen as a result of possible depression and melancholy. Likewise, isolating themselves from others can be a risk factor. This study in short contributes for clinic research, scientific research and public policies, which could contribute for becoming more alert to the problematic
