The intimate partner violence among adolescents (IPV) refers to behaviour in intimate relationships that taunt physical, sexual or psychological damage, through acts of physical aggression, sexual coercion, psychological abuse or control. Internationally, it is a phenomenon present in different cultures, social groups, ethnicities and social classes (Mumford, Taylor, Liu, & Giordano, 2018).

Because of the phenomenon’s impact on the quality of life and health of those involved, its addressing needs investments in the health field, especially in Primary Health Care (PHC) (Egry et al., 2017)⁠. Other studies point out that Third Sector institutions create a relevant partnership with health services, as health-promoting spaces (Anhas, Castro-Silva, Anhas, & Castro-Silva, 2017)⁠.

This study is justified by the need for cogent interventions to effectively cope with adolescent IPV. It aims: a) to construct an intervention proposal, directed at health professionals and the third sector, on coping with adolescent IPV, in the perspectives of gender and generation; b) to describe the advantages of using software for qualitative data analysis for the development of this proposal.
