Psycho Education in Situations of Family and Domestic Violence
This paper presents the dialogic intervention strategy developed by the Support Center for People in Situation of
Family and Domestic Violence. The partnership between the State University of Ceará - Brazil and the Court of Justice
allowed the individuals involved in domestic violence crimes had access psychoeducation sessions, by court order. It was
possible to them to understand that family conflicts that result in extreme violence situations are conditioned by patriarchal
culture and the difficulties of living family's challenges imposed by the contemporary society. These challenges affect
mental health standards and the lethality of violence in conjugal relations. Therefore, they should be the starting point for
public policies and new strategies for help intervention and for promoting equality between men and women.
