KUABARA, Cláudia Yuri Souza; KLIPAN, Marcos Leandro  and  ABRAO, Jorge Luís Ferreira. Foster family: the establishment of object relations in fostering situation. Estilos clin. [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.2, pp.346-365. ISSN 1415-7128.

The Foster Family Service organizes the fostering of children and adolescents who have been temporarily removed from family life. We consider relevant to discuss and think this practice beyond their legal and assistance aspects, also considering their scientific-academic and psychological characteristics. In order to understand the establishment of object relations in this specific context, we interviewed two teenagers and five children who have been experiencing or have experienced fostering at some period in their lives. The interviews were non-directive and initiated from a triggering question in order to encourage testimonials and free association psychoanalytical method.

Keywords : foster family; psychoanalysis; object relations.
