AMORIM, Micaele Stefane Cardoso; TAVARES, Andrea Schettino; WOLFF, Lana dos Santos  and  COSTA, Liana Fortunato. Family and social violence in the life of adult sexual offender. Pensando fam. [online]. 2021, vol.25, n.2, pp. 176-194. ISSN 1679-494X.

The purpose of this text is to identify violence suffered, in the family and social contexts, by adult men that committed sexual violence against children and adolescents, considering their life trajectories. It is a qualitative and documentary research in the participants’ records of a public health unit that treats this population. It was analyzed 136 medical records and five types of violence were found: child labor, neglect, physical, psychological and sexual. The analysis contemplated the implications between the suffering experienced, the violence suffered and the violence practiced. The understanding and the significance of the victimizations suffered throughout the lives of these adults are fundamental for understanding the violence committed, as well as their own offensive dynamics. Sexual violence is a complex issue that belongs to a circuit that needs to be interrupted.
