SILVA, Carlos Felipe Lemes e  and  TILIO, Rafael De. Autobiographical changes in women victimized served by public care network. Rev. Subj. [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp. 475-485. ISSN 2359-0769.

The violence against women occurs in several forms (physical or psychological) and has been studied because it concerns the health public policies. It is know that many women are victims of violence every day, and the main space that it happens is in the domestic place, as it can be found in the literature. The present study aims to investigate how violence in its many forms cause autobiographical alteration in women who are victims of violence and sought the public care network, and also how the host institution help these victims in the reframing process. To this end, three women (ages between 20 and 50) who sought care at a Centro de Referência da Mulher in Minas Gerais/Brazil were interviewed. These women were asked after the reception given by the Centre to take part in a semi-structured interview conducted in a federal local university. The interview aimed to investigate the changes in the women autobiography after violence. The results were analyzed from the theoretical Lacanian psychoanalysis and authors like Foucault and Goffman from the thematic content analysis of Bardin. It was found various changes in the interviewees' history and self recognition of victimized women, as well as the influence of the host institution. Besides, the enrichment of research in the area is needed to drive improvements in health care to these victims.
