CAMPANA, Nathalia T. C.; GOMES, Isabel C.  e  LERNER, Rogério. Contributions of the clinic of parentality in the psychological treatment of a child obesity case. Psicol. clin. [online]. 2014, vol.26, n.2, pp. 105-119. ISSN 0103-5665.

Studies about obesity show that, in addition to possible genetic constitution, its appearance may be associated with early interpersonal relationships. This paper aims to discuss, through clips of a clinical case, contributions that the clinic of parentality may have for the treatment of infantile obesity. For this purpose, the concept of parentality, its clinical derivation and issues related to contemporaneity which interfere in the process of becoming a mother and a father will be introduced. The interpretation of the clinical material revealed that the child behavior of eating compulsively was related to parental fragility, according to the scientific literature. Thus, working in the context of the clinic of parentality may favor relieving of the symptom as it releases the child of an unspeakable legacy and strengthens its subjective position and parental functions. Furthermore, when necessary, it's possible to contribute for bringing up a demand for family therapy.

Palavras-chave : obesity in children; parentality; family; psychoanalysis.
