Abstract

ALGERI, Simone  and  SOUZA, Luccas Melo de. Violence against children and adolescents: a challenge in the daily work of the nursing team. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.4, pp. 625-631. ISSN 0104-1169.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-11692006000400023.

This article aims to reflect on various forms of violence against children and adolescents practiced in the family context, and the importance of professional nursing care in view of this phenomenon. We discuss possibilities of care and violence prevention as well as the problems violence causes to society. Violence is a social and historical problem, constructed in society, and needs to be adequately addressed in academic nursing education.

Keywords : violence; domestic violence; child; adolescent; aggression; nursing; health education; family.
