COIMBRA, José César; RICCIARDI, Ursula  and  LEVY, Lidia. Maria da Penha Law, multidisciplinary team and protective measures. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.2, pp.158-172. ISSN 1809-5267.

The role of the Multidisciplinary assistance team in the execution of protective measures foreseen in Maria da Penha's law, which creates means to prevent domestic and in-house violence against women, is investigated. The team is composed of social workers and psychologists. Based on a bibliographic and documentary review, demands directed to the team are identified, as well as its responses by assessing the team's reasons for intervention. Such responses are based on the professionals and are related to the interpretation of the judicial authority. The intervention of the team is situated between the expectations and the doubts with respect to the justice players and the acceptance of the demands that are directed to it. As a conclusion, the punishment aspect of the legislation does not exhaust the conflicts in the form of violence against a woman and protective measures alone do not guarantee the integrity of women.

Keywords : Violence against women; Multidisciplinary team; Maria da Penha Law; Protective measures.
