COSTA, Ethyene Andrade  y  MOREIRA, Jacqueline de Oliveira. The child and their family: the case of the boy and his avatar, The Shadow. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2017, vol.49, n.2, pp. 182-201. ISSN 0101-4838.

Family matters can be decisive elements in the development of symptoms in individuals. Considering the idea that children who are taken to psychoanalytical treatment are depositary of family anguishes and can enunciate these anguishes to the outside world, it is crucial to consider the subject as a part of a broader context in which they establish relations with other subjects. Maintaining Freud's rigor concerning the investigation of the novelties presented in the subject's speech, this article aimed to construct a case study which allows reconsiderations regarding the possible actions carried out by the analyst towards children who unconsciously relive their families' history of suffering. The unsaid, i. e., what has been repressed by the family, returns and results in symptoms which affect new generations. Since symptomatic repetitions have shown to have a connection with the "badly-said" of the subject's history, receiving different members of the families in group sessions has shown to be of great importance in dealing with cases. Family clinic shows its relevance: through symbolization of traumatic family inheritance, it becomes possible to organize the subject's particularities and to understand the difference between "belonging" to a family and the identifications which led them to fuse and "turn into", "become", the family.

Palabras clave : psychoanalysis with children; family; building of clinical case.
