BACKES, Dirce Stein et al. Domestic violence in the perspective of complex thinking. av.enferm. [online]. 2011, vol.29, n.2, pp. 225-233. ISSN 0121-4500.
Taking into account the multiple dimensions involving the human being and social phenomena, this paper aims to shed light on the meaning of "domestic violence" in order to broaden and contextualize nursing care in the different areas of social inclusion. Data were collected through a semi-structured interview with individuals in the municipality of Santa Maria - RS, Brazil, between May and June 2009. The data, coded and analyzed under the theoretical framework of thematic analysis, resulted in four themes: questioning the role of the media, perception of the influence of the media, reconsideration of teaching-learning methods, and silent violence. The results show that analyzing the many variables involved the "violence" phenomenon requires a perception of the individual, either victim or aggressor, as a unique and multidimensional being, as well as of the articulation of the various professional areas.
