WANDERBROOCKE, Ana Claudia N.S. et al. Meanings of elderly psychological violence: families experiences. Pensando fam. [online]. 2020, vol.24, n.2, pp. 132-146. ISSN 1679-494X.

The aim of the research was to analyze the meanings of violence against the elderly among members of a coexistence group for the third age. Qualitative research was carried out through three focus groups. A total of 22 elderly participated, being three men and nineteen women, aged between 61 and 84 years. The data were analyzed through discursive practices and organized into four categories indicative of the meanings produced due to the family’s experiences: lack of understanding / patience in the face of limitations, restriction of autonomy, failure to recognize potentialities and repetition of abusive family patterns. The results show the daily and subtle psychological violence, capable of causing harm, as well as the presence of a fine line between what can be considered care and what comes to be perceived as violence.
