Abstract

Objective: to unveil the strategies used by women for confronting marital violence. Method: a qualitative research using the Straussian orientation of the Data Grounded Theory as a theoretical-methodological framework and two Justice Courts for Peace at Home as its scenario. Data was collected through individual interviews and analyzed in the coding process in three interdependent stages: open, axial and selective coding. Results: to elucidate the “Strategy” component, the following categories emerged: Finding support in family; Being part of groups of women in situations of violence; and Experiencing legal-police support. Conclusion: given the difficulty women find in breaking with a relationship permeated by violence, it is urgent that the professionals in various areas of care for women be prepared not only to recognize the problem but also to guide them as to the prominence of these resources for exiting from violence situation process and perhaps enable access to these one.
