KUPERMANN, Daniel. On the ending of analysis with children and adolescents. Estilos clin. [online]. 2007, vol.12, n.23, pp. 182-197. ISSN 1415-7128.
This essay intends to lead to reflection on the problems concerning the end of analysis with children and adolescents. By taking a historical path through some of the most important contributions to infanto-juvenile clinical practice, especially the ideas of D. W. Winnicott, we suggest that playing together with the child, as well as accompany, with humour, the fight of the adolescent, lead to the “capacity to be alone”.
