[Scientific session research presentation] Violence against women is one of most the important phenomenon in Brazilian society. Recently it has been studied as a health problem, because of the consequences to women and their families' lives. To deal with such theme health workers need knowledge and values. However, knowledge and values in the majority of cases aren't strong enough to deal withbecause of common sense rationality and no scientific bases or reflected pointof view. This study aims to know the nursing students and health professionals' perceptions about violence against women. The methodology was descriptive using theoretic and methodological references about gender, violence as social construction. Students of last year of undergraduate program and professionals of family health program (physicians, registered nurses, psychologists and social workers) participated of this study. The data were collected through questionnaire with and a checklist to verify the level of acceptance or not phrases reported gender violence. The phrases were results of previous researchand they have built under the real experiences of community health agents. The categories expressed by the phrases were as follows: angry against aggressor men; angry against aggressed women; comprehension and pity of aggressed women; weakness and powerless feelings; hopeless and conformism; desire to help aggressed women; idealized solution tothe problem. The results showed that there are no differences between the family health program professionals and the nursing students. Both have presented common sense perception of gender violence against women, showing that there is no reflective behavior orattitudes as a qualified workers have to have.  In conclusion, gender violence against women, a rising problem in Brazilian family health until now it hasn't been receiving attention in the qualification program to health workers. Also, the phenomenon hasn't received specific topic in family health program.
