SILVA, Sergio Gomes da. The language of gestures and bodies: silence in the clinical perspective of Sándor Ferenczi. Cad. psicanal. [online]. 2015, vol.37, n.32, pp. 197-222. ISSN 1413-6295.

This study aims at analyzing silence in the psychoanalytic practice as far as the contributions of the main theoretical heir to Freud, Sándor Ferenczi, are concerned. To this purpose, the author examines the referents of silence, in the metapsychological considerations of the Hungarian psychoanalyst, such as: resistance, censorship, repression and transference/countertransference. In addition, the author investigates Ferenczi’s theoretical and clinical innovations regarding the description of the language of gestures and bodies as it relates to the active technique, elasticity technique, relaxation, neocatharsis and the analyst’s tact. Ferenczi is considered to be the first author who tried to problematize silence in psychoanalysis, assuming it as language and communication, as well as managing it from the perspective of the affections experienced by analyst and patient.

Palavras-chave : Silence; communication; language of gestures; language of bodies; Ferenczi.
