BECKER, Ana Paula Sesti; TRIDAPALLI, Ana Paula Laura  and  BOLZE, Simone Azeredo. Marital Violence: Different Epistemological Perspectives and Psychotherapeutic Practices. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.3, pp. 1-13. ISSN 1809-8908.

Marital violence is considered a serious public health problem and has ceased to occupy only the private sphere in the Brazilian domestic reality. Faced with the challenges presented by the theme, the objective of this theoretical article is to discuss conjugal violence under different epistemologies, such as attachment theory, psychoanalysis and systemic. More precisely, it is intended to reflect on the formation of conjugal bond and abusive relationships, to problematize the concepts that refer to the phenomenon of conjugal violence, and, finally, to point out therapeutic intervention strategies with couples that may contribute to programs for the prevention of conjugal violence. The discussions contemplated in this study showed the differences regarding the type of violence perpetrated between men and women; as well as problematized the relational and intergenerational nature of the phenomenon and its implications for conjugal affective development.

Keywords : Violence; Conjugality; Conjugal violence; Psychotherapeutic interventions.
