OLIVEIRA, Fabiana Azeredo de  e  MARTINS, Karla Patricia Holanda. Subjective implications of the relationship mother-child in the presentment of childhood obesity. Estilos clin. [online]. 2012, vol.17, n.1, pp. 122-135. ISSN 1415-7128.

The present study arouse from an interest to understand the mother-child relationship in childhood obesity. The World Health Organisation (WHO) reveals that the disease offer s big challenges to the health programs. Considering that the child's relation towards food is usually mediated by the mother, we intend to investigate, under a psychoanalytic perspective, the implications of such relationship in childhood obesity. In addition to the bibliographic research, we also listened to four mothers of obese children between 7 and 11 years old. We managed to conclude that childhood obesity can be considered a child's symptom in response to the subjective position of the mother.

Palavras-chave : childhood obesity; psychoanalysis; mother-child relationship.
