POHL, Katherine  e  NEVES, Anamaria Silva. A psychoanalytic reading of the body and the resonances of childhood sexual violence. Tempo psicanal. [online]. 2020, vol.52, n.1, pp. 187-215. ISSN 0101-4838.

This study was based on the psychoanalytical theory and, through the construction of a clinical case, aimed to analyze the body as a locus of expression of the psychic suffering after undergoing a traumatic experience such as incestuous sexual violence in childhood. The patient Lis, eighteen years old, was referred to psychological counseling after reporting physical, psychological and sexual violence against her biological father. The consultations lasted for two years and the body dimension emerged as a privileged aspect of the analysis. T he patient's body manifestations revealed emotional experiences excluded from her discourse, which stood out in her symptomatic formations. Faced with Lis's significant difficulty in discriminating, organizing and welcoming her affections and experiences, the body became the main channel of communication between analyst and analysand. The analysis of the case signaled that the body anchored marks of the traumatic drive excess and appeared as the stage for primitive experiences. Thusly, the research pointed to the inseparability between the analytical field and the problematic of the body, a witness of the unsaid and of what escapes the subject's symbolic discourse.
