GONCALVES, Renata Cristina. The influence of drawing in psychoanalytical practice for subject's constitution: a case study on childhood autism. Estilos clin. [online]. 2017, vol.22, n.2, pp.230-245. ISSN 1415-7128.

This paper aims to discuss the use of drawing as an auxiliary tool for the subjective constitution of an autistic patient, whose case was studied through the selection and interpretation of drawings significant to its comprehension. Based on theoretical knowledge and on the interpretation of such drawings, it was observed that such graphical production was relevant when considering the subjective constitution of the patient in question. After starting playful activities, the patient showed ability to experience some control over the Other and differentiate herself from him.

Keywords : autism; constitution; drawing; psychoanalysis.
