This article examines texts that discuss the concept of consciousness to analyze relationship between conscious experience and psychological violence in the family context in order to preventive interventions that allow family ties to revise the public sociability. In the internal logic of psychological violence are established practices irrational thoughts, as a result, the actors who experience it does not transpire awareness of the existence of another and / or of oneself. In the survey, the procedure was interpretive and methodological research literature: readings, reviews and analysis of texts. The structure consists of writing the exposure of some ways that consciousness is thought by many sciences, theses gestalt of thought and presentation of some authors about psychological violence that occurs in families. As a conclusion we ponder that, in the literature focused on the conceptual difficulties remain, neuroscience, cognitive psychology, behavior analysis and psychiatry have methodological tools to answer precisely what is consciousness, so we move away from complaint methodological and elect some musings gestalt and existential Heideggerian phenomenology to analyze possible relationships between conscious experience and psychological violence
