SCOTT, Juliano Beck  and  OLIVEIRA, Isabel F. de. Reflective groups for men who commit domestic violence: a comparative study based on three Brazilian programs. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2021, vol.23, n.1, pp. 01-20. ISSN 1516-3687.

ABSTRACT Brazil still has few programs that assist men who commit violence, even though these are provided by the law. Based on this, a comparative study was designed focusing on the theoretical/methodological approach adopted by different programs that work with reflective groups for male perpetrators of violence in Brazil. Thus, a total of seven facilitators from three different programs were interviewed. The data were categorized and presented as the main results: the need to reinforce the importance of initial training for facilitators, screening as an important tool in the insertion of participants, and the importance of a reflective-accountable approach. It is emphasized that the groups should not be isolated, but integrated into the network against violence against women and in conjunction with social movements for social transformation. This study can contribute to the reflection on new intervention models and to create guidelines for the realization of reflective groups in Brazil.
