Abstract: A violência psicológica na infância e adolescência, no contexto familiar, ainda é pouco estudada. Este artigo tem como objetivo analisar como a violência psicológica na família relatada por crianças e adolescentes tem sido abordada nos estudos acadêmicos, através de revisão de literatura. A metodologia utilizada baseou-se na pesquisa bibliográfica das fontes de informações das bases de dados da LILACS, MEDLINE, SciELO, PubMed e do Portal Capes, nas bases Scopus e PsycInfo. Entre 51 estudos epidemiológicos, 16 desses se mostraram adequados ao objetivo desse artigo e comprovam a alta prevalência deste tipo de violência. Através dessa revisão pode-se perceber que esse tema tem sido mais estudado na literatura internacional do que na brasileira, e que aumentou significativamente sua visibilidade na última década, porém ainda enfrenta dificuldades quanto à definição, conceituação e operacionalidade. Constatou-se que a violência psicológica ao sair da invisibilidade pode colaborar para o aumento da prevenção e da proteção desta natureza de violência.
Abstract: Psychological family violence in childhood and adolescence is still poorly studied, due to difficulties in its definition and detection. This article aims to examine how psychological family violence reported by children and adolescents has been addressed in academic studies, using a literature review (LILACS, MEDLINE, SciELO, PubMed, CAPES Portal, PsycINFO, and SCOPUS databases). Among 51 epidemiological studies, 16 articles met the review's objectives; some of the articles reported a high prevalence of such violence. The study showed that the issue has been studied more in the international literature than in Brazil, which has significantly increased its visibility in the last decade but still faces difficulties involving definition, conceptualization, and operationalization. Eliminating the invisibility of psychological violence in the family could help promote prevention of such violence and protection of children and adolescents.
