BRUM, Rayssa Reck; PEREIRA, Caroline Rubin Rossato; RODRIGUES, Tatiane Pinto  and  SANTOS, Andressa Nascimento dos. Transgenerationality and violence: a study with women victims of violent marital relationships. Psicol. pesq. [online]. 2021, vol.15, n.3, pp. 1-28. ISSN 1982-1247.

The study aimed to understand the family and conjugal experiences of women in situations of conjugal violence. This is a multiple case study, with three women in situations of conjugal violence. The instruments included an interview on family relationships and the family genogram. The investigation of transgenerational relationships pointed out that the women had experienced violent patterns in their own families of origin during childhood and/or adolescence, witnessed violence between parents, or were victims of parental violence. Such experiences may have favored the maintenance of the women in violent relationships. The results found point to the importance of expanding the view on conjugal violence, considering also experiences in the family of origin, both in relation to interventions with women and in preventive terms, aiming to favor the development of non-coercive educational practices in families.

Keywords : Marital violence; Transgenerationality; Marital relations.
