The goal of this study is to present how a group of psychologists evaluates the official guidelines for psychological assistance to women in situations of violence regarding psychological care in the multiprofessional team. In order to do that, a field research was carried out in which 12 psychologists were interviewed. Content Analysis was used to define two categories of analysis that point out what is missing in the guidelines for intervention in psychology: 1) Promotion of personal empowerment; and 2) Discrimination of professional attributions of psychology. It was identified that the guidelines offered for psychological practice in multiprofessional teams in specialized services are not adequate, and the role of psychology is ambiguous and contradictory.

Keywords : violence against women; psychology; approach to interdisciplinary treatment.
