According to the World Health Organization, violence against women is a public health problem. This article describes a preventive intervention aimed at families with children of school age, the aims of which were to promote self-esteem, present family models based on equality and undo traditional gender roles. Awareness panels on the issue were presented at the health center. Participants were recruited simultaneously: seven boys, nine girls, 13 mothers, 10 fathers, a tutor. Contents: group dynamics: the self-esteem tree; storytelling: “Cinderella did not want to eat partridges”; puppets: “We are not rag dolls”; conclusion: the tree of self-esteem has grown. The leisure nature of the workshop ensured the attention and participation from the audience. The self-esteem tree is exhibited in the health center. For effective prevention, interventions that integrate the whole family, the scene of the problem, are required.
