PATINO, Rafael Andrés  e  LAMEGO, Gabriela. Meanings of health and illness in the relatives' experience of forced disappearances in the Colombian armed conflict. Estud. psicol. (Natal) [online]. 2018, vol.23, n.3, pp. 317-324. ISSN 1413-294X.

This article presents the results of a research centered on the traumatic experience of relatives of victims of forced disappearance in the context of the Colombian armed conflict, focusing on attempts to make sense of the disappearance of the loved ones and the diverse forms in which the violent experience relates with the perception of one's own health, body and health/illness processes. The study was attended by 16 women and different techniques of information production were used: in-depth interviews and discussion groups. The analysis of the discursive material has led to the conclusion that for the participants of the research the most varied health aggravations are related to the disappearance of the loved ones. At the same time, the illness is attributed and associated to the violent experience as well as a manifestation of the anxiety-laden memory of the loved ones in their psyche.

Palavras-chave : violence; health; psychic trauma.
