AVOGLIA, Hilda Rosa Capelão; GARCIA, Victória Pereira  e  FRIZON, Valeska Carioca. Sexual violence: the wounds on the representation of the body image of the victimized child. Bol. psicol [online]. 2015, vol.65, n.142, pp.29-43. ISSN 0006-5943.

Child sexual abuse is one of the biggest challenges of contemporary society, triggering difficulties in emotional, cognitive and social development that are often observable in the mental representation that the child has of her own body. Therefore the research aimed to examine the body image of children, victims of sexual violence, using the Human Figure Drawing. This is a study based on data analysis observed in interviews and psychological tests that were part of reports of four children treated at the Regional Center of Attention to Maltreatment in Childhood (CRAMI). The material was analyzed qualitatively under a psychoanalytic perspective. The results indicated that these children are discontent and anxious about the development of their body. They manifested inability to understand the excess of excitement experienced as traumatic. The psychotherapeutic process proved to be necessary to facilitate the elaboration of the experience and contribute to the social adjustment of these children
