CHAVES, Eduardo  and  COSTA, Liana Fortunato. Technical study about the removal of the aggressor in sexual abuse: offender, family and victim. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2012, vol.14, n.2, pp. 102-115. ISSN 1516-3687.

This paper addresses the issue of removing the aggressor from the household in cases of child sexual abuse and applying the Full Protection Doctrine, taking into account the psychosocial care given to the aggressor, the family and the victim. For this purpose, the instrumental case study approach was adopted with a purposive sample within the context of a Brazilian court's Referral Center for Full Protection of Children and Adolescents Facing Sexual Violence. Members of a family affected by sexual violence that was the object of a technical study due to a protective order determination were the subject of the survey: mother, stepfather and three adolescent daughters. The information was organized and interpreted using the document analysis method. In the process of recovering the protection system, the courts failed to strengthen their dialogue with the Rights Guarantee System, suggesting that Defense actions are not fully in tune with actual and solid protection measures available to the individuals being studied.

Keywords : sexual abuse; family; justice; Statute of the Child and Adolescent; Rights Guarantee System.
