RODRIGUES, Luciana Santos  and  CHALHUB, Anderson Almeida. Violent family backgrounds: from the experience of son to the experience of father. Pensando fam. [online]. 2014, vol.18, n.2, pp. 77-92. ISSN 1679-494X.

As part of the research on family, violence has unfortunately space. Despite being the environment that, in the ideal level, should be protected, at the level of the real, the family appears as a place of violent acts and practices against its members. This study examine, through a literature research in the databases Scielo and BVS-psi, the experience of fatherhood of men from violent family backgrounds, seeking to know the relationship between the experience of violence in the origin family and the experience of fatherhood in the family today. We found that domestic violence experienced in childhood influences the experience of fatherhood, when the sons of violence become parents. However, this influence doesn’t determine the maintenance of dysfunctional relational patterns of the origin family. Maintain or turn dysfunctional relational patterns depends on a combination of risk and protective factors.
