Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Sessions of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is good for women subject to sexual violence. [ Time Frame: 8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Women subjected to sexual violence had significative higher incidence of depression and fibromyalgia that did not respond to classic treatment; after two of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy started to respond to medicine previously employed.

  • PREVENTION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IN CHILDOOD AND/OR ADOLESCENTS: LESSER PREVALENCE OF COMORBIDITIES IN CLIMACTERIC´S PHASE. [ Time Frame: four months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

    Analyzing among women who suffered violence in childhood and/or adolescence comorbidities they suffered in climacteric´s phase. We applied a semi-structured questionnaire for women in climactery who suffered domestic violence. We performed descriptive and comparative analysis on violences both groups (violence in childhood and/or adolescence and violence in adulthood) with chronic affections presented in climactery.

    Conclusion: suffering domestic violence during childhood and/or adolescence presents higher prevalence of comorbidities during climacteric´s phase.


  • Analyzing among women who suffered violence the comorbidities they suffered in climacteric´s phase. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Chronic pathologies in women who suffered violence in childhood/adolescence: Hypertension 47,5%, Diabetes 14,17%, Depression 70,0%;Labyrintitis 36,67%, Fybromialgy 30,83%, Rheumatic disease 25,0%, Ovarian cancer 1,67%, Uterine cancer 3,33%, Disk hernia 13,33%, Allergies 30,83%, Bronchitis 10,83%, Thrombosis 6,67%. Comparing these women to those who suffered violence during adulthood, these women resulted in higher prevalence of Diabetes, Depression, Labyrintitis, Ovarian cancer, Bronchitis/breathing allergies and Thrombosis, when compared to women subjected to violence during adulthood.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Sessions of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is good for women subject to sexual violence. [ Time Frame: 8 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
    Women subjected to violence in any phase of their lives had at least three chronic comorbidities. The correlation between having been subjected to violence and suffering from depression, fibromyalgia or sexual dysfunctions (statistical significant).
