MESQUITA, Mirka. Psychoanalysis and child and adolescent psychiatry: between dialogues and quarrels. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2019, vol.51, n.1, pp.211-230. ISSN 0101-4838.

The present study seeks to identify the contributions of the partnership between psychoanalysis and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as well as the consequences of their separation. The concepts of narcissism and autoeroticism were fundamental for the emergence and legitimation of child and adolescent psychiatry as a medical specialty distinct from adult Psychiatry. In a context in which the current psychiatric discourse defends an essentially empiricist base to the detriment of the dialogue with psychodynamic approaches, it is verified that the rejection of psychoanalysis promotes the denaturation of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, since the child mental illness are reduced to purely neurological dysfunctions.

Keywords : psychoanalysis; child and adolescent psychiatry; history.
