ARAUJO, Juliana Falcão Barbosa de; CHATELARD, Daniela Scheinkman; CARVALHO, Isalena Santos  e  VIANA, Terezinha de Camargo. The body in pain: self-harm, masochism and drive. Estilos clin. [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.2, pp. 497-515. ISSN 1415-7128.

This article aims to discuss the relation between body and pain in psychoanalysis. We take self-­harm - the act of deliberately injuring one's own body - as object of analysis. Self-­harm is a common clinical matter in psychologists and psychoanalysts' practice, especially in clinic with teenagers. It is a theme addressed by psychiatry, since many people who hurt themselves are sent to psychiatric treatment, often with medication. In psychiatry, self-­harm is considered both as a symptom of some mental disorders and as a disorder itself. In this article, we aim to present a view of self-­harm in its relation to the concept of masochism developed by Freud.

Palavras-chave : self-­harm; pain; body; masochism; drive.
