FONSECA, Jacinta Rodrigues et al. Exposure to violence in intimate relationships: a clinical case. Nascer e Crescer [online]. 2017, vol.26, n.3, pp.182-184. ISSN 0872-0754.

Children who are exposed to violence in intimate relationships are often deemed “indirect victims” and for a long time it was difficult to fit them into a specific abuse category. Nowadays, emotional abuse includes interparental violence that is witnessed by minors. A case is presented of a child repeatedly exposed to his father’s physical and emotional violence towards his mother. This clinical case draw attention to the need of developing awareness-raising strategies to do active screening in pediatric appointments and primary healthcare in abuse situations, namely exposure to violence in intimate relationships. Domestic violence is a public crime and includes situations of exposure to violence in intimate relations, which is a crucial aspect in the inter-generational transmission of this kind of behaviour. It is urgent to break these cycles of violence and counsel both the victims and the aggressors.

Palavras-chave : Children; interparental violence; emotional abuse.
