Interpersonal and self-inflicted violence has become more increasnig in adolescence, a period marked by social, physical and psychological changes in wich is required greater adaptability and preparation for adulthood. Considering Brazil as a country with high rates of violence, together with the understanding of childhood and adolescence as phases marked by violent experiences, the objective of this research is to identify and analyze self-inflicted violence in adolescence, its association with interpersonal violence in childhood, describing the factors related to these events and their psychosocial discoveries, through an integrative literature review. The objective is also to contextualize the notifications of violence in the city of Goiânia through the submission of public data (collected and interpreted by the “Center of Violence Prevention and Health Promotion”, of the Municipal Health Department) as well as reviewing the Public Policies to confront interpersonal and self-inflicted violence in these age groups. The results point to relations between physical, sexual, psychological violence, bullying, psychosocial vulnerabilities, and suicidal behavior. The analysis of public data points to an increase of the violence notification against children and adolescents and, increasingly, cases of self-harm over the years. Through the review of federal, state and municipal Public Policies, it is observed that despite the advances and the continuous struggle of many public figures, there is a strong necessity for more specific policies to combat violence and, in a unique way, self-inflicted ones. It is emphasized violence as a social phenomenon and the result of cultural, historical, economic, demographic, subjective and health conditions.
