BARROS, Ana Cláudia Mamede Wiering de; DESLANDES, Suely Ferreira  e  BASTOS, Olga Maria. Family violence in a sample of children and adolescents with disabilities. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2016, vol.32, n.6, e00090415.  Epub 01-Jun-2016. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/0102-311X00090415.

This study aimed to identify and analyze the prevalence of physical and psychological family violence in a sample of children and adolescents with different categories of disabilities in a hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This was a cross-sectional observational study based on application of the Parent-Child Conflict Tactics Scale in a sample of 270 parents or guardians. Prevalence was 83.7% for psychological aggression and 84.4% for physical maltreatment, while 96.5% of the children and adolescents with disabilities that suffered physical punishment were also victims of psychological aggression (p < 0.01) and 100% of those who suffered severe physical maltreatment also suffered psychological aggression (p = 0.01). Children and adolescents with disabilities showed increased risk of suffering family violence compared to those without disabilities. In conclusion, there is a need for greater awareness-raising and training of health teams for detection and notification of child abuse, and efforts should be made to support these families.
